Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout 2017 has returned to shelves this month. This year marks the fifth release of this geek collaborative.
In 2013, Greg Koch of Stone Brewing teamed up with Will Wheaton (aka Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: Next Gen) and Fark.com founder Drew Curtis. The collective created Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout, an imperial stout with pecans and rye malt that was partially barrel aged.
2014 brought w00tstout 2.0, and a new actress into the collaboration, Aisha Tyler.
The imperial stout finish is softened by the wheat presence, and nuanced by pecan and bourbon soaked oak. A fun break from the lighter beers of summer. Yes, you could cellar it, but keep in mind, it’s quite good fresh.
This barrel-aged palate-saver has been a favorite among our fans—and us—since its inception in 2013. Pecans, wheat, flaked rye and bourbon-soaked wood provide this whopping, complex superhero version of an imperial stout with a profound complexity that makes it ideal for cellaring—if you can wait that long. Now, we can’t say this beer bestows superpowers, exactly, but your taste buds may just be fooled into believing as much.
