Geeking Out(2): Stone Brewing Co. Releases Stone w00tstout 2.0, A Collaboration with Wil Wheaton, Drew Curtis and Aisha Tyler...while Stone CEO Greg Koch was Away
Monday, July 14, 2014
In 2013, Stone Brewing Co. CEO & Co-founder Greg Koch invited long-time friend, actor and overall geek idol Wil Wheaton, along with Fark.com creator Drew Curtis, to collaborate on a massive yet seductive imperial stout dubbed Drew Curtis/Wil Wheaton/Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout. Since the beer was wildly popular with geeks and craft enthusiasts, Stone decided to re-brew it this year, inviting Wheaton and Curtis back to the brewhouse in May. However, with Koch out on sabbatical, Curtis called on longtime friend and multi-talented actress, comedian, podcaster and homebrewer Aisha Tyler to help brew the slightly revamped second iteration, renamed Stone w00tstout 2.0. Starting today, it is available in 22-ounce bottles and kegs at select retailers, restaurants and bars in Southern California, as well as Curtis’ home state of Kentucky.
