Event Details

Hop-Con 2.0 – The w00tstout Launch Festival
Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014 | 7 - 10pm
@ Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station

Last year's celebration of nth degree beer geekery is back for round two. Thespian and renaissance man Wil Wheaton, online news guru Drew Curtis and multi-talented actress and comedian Aisha Tyler collaborated on Stone w00tstout 2.0, a massive yet seductive imperial stout brewed with wheat, flaked rye, pecans and stoneground chocolate, then partially aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels. To share it with the world in style befitting such a special beer, the trio will converge to meet, greet, revel and imbibe with fans of the beer, as well as the passion and originality w00tstout represents. This won’t be about awkward handshakes, high-fives, selfies and autographs—just general and rampant merriment and celebrating all things geeky in a relaxed festive atmosphere with great food and awesome craft beer. We'll also have the 2013 and 2014 vintages of the beer on tap to try side-by-side along with some unique creations for the night!


Your $59 ticket includes:
-Ten 4oz beer samples
- A commemorative Hop-Con 2.0 glass
- Complimentary hors d'oeuvres
- Lots of geeky good times!
***Please note, this event is held at our Liberty Station location near downtown San Diego!***





- $30 Donation Offer -
Get A Signed Litho of the Stone w00tstout 2.0 label by artist Dave Gibbons and 100% will go towards supporting Hero Initiative

Famed comic artist Dave Gibbons put a personalized stamp on this year’s edition of w00tstout. The co-creator of the Watchmen series worked up the fine art for the w00tstout 2.0 bottle in exchange for a donation to The Hero Initiative (www.heroinitiative.org), a charity organization providing retirement funds for golden age comic book artists. He's also signing a limited run of 11” x 17” lithos exclusively for Hop-Con 2.0 attendees. All of the funds from sale of the lithos will go towards The Hero Initiative, helping them create a financial safety net for comic creators in need of emergency medical aid, financial support for the essentials of life or an avenue back into paying work.
