Over the years, Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout has become one of our most anticipated annual releases – and not just because it’s an astoundingly flavorful beer concocted as a collaboration between FARK’s Drew Curtis, nerd royalty Wil Wheaton and Stone Brewing co-founder Greg Koch. It’s the incredible label art adorning this beer over the years that has elevated it to the pinnacle of beer, geekery and beer geekery. This year’s heroic artwork comes from Tom Raney, who has a history drawing comics at Marvel and DC, from X-Men to Batman. His label art depicts a superpowered, mecha-gargoyle ready to spring into action to protect the sublime sanctity of great craft beer.
This beer is a monster. The flavours are a wonderful blend of everything that makes a great imperial stout, loaded with roasty notes and malty complexity. Brewing with rye and nuts always creates challenges for our brewing team, but they rose to the occasion with this one – it’s simply amazing.
