It’s that time of year again! Stone’s deliciously distinctive mocha stout is harmoniously balanced with organic 100% cacao (made in-house) in addition to coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon & nutmeg in the same beloved recipe that has made it such a fan favorite. This festive beer interpretation of Mexican hot chocolate is only available for a limited time, but can be enjoyed long into the spring and summer, as this gem will age beautifully no matter the season.

FACT SHEET: Stone Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse

This beer is the culmination of a journey that began on our Stone World Bistro & Gardens - Liberty Station 10bbl brewhouse. The Notorious P.O.G. was first served at Hop-Con 4.0, as a collaboration brewed with actor/comedian Jonah Ray and our very own Kris Ketcham, Sr. Manager of Brewing & Innovation - Liberty Station. It had the longest line throughout the night, and we knew we owed it to our fans to brew this on a larger scale. For those unfamiliar with Hawaiian juice lore, P.O.G. stands for Passion, Orange, Guava.

FACT SHEET: Wil Wheaton / Drew Curtis / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout

Front and center this year is the result of Wil’s creative machinations taking the art direction duties with world-renowned fantasy artist Joe Jusko representing our gargoyle’s triumph over the evils in the world of beer.  Six years into this amazing w00tstout legacy and I continue to be stunned and humbled by the response of our fans.  Sure, it’s an amazingly delicious massive Russian Imperial Stout partially inspired by Kentucky Derby Pie of Drew’s home state.  And speaking of Drew, we asked him to lean into two of his strengths: drinking w00tstout and chatting up a storm.  So this year he’ll MC our wildly nerd-nominious celebration of beer and geekery known as HopCon/w00tstout release party held annually during San Diego’s Comic-Con.  The nerd lives in all of us.  Celebrate it!  Now is the golden age for us lovers of awesome things.  We’re here.  We’re vast, and we’ve got great taste.  This beer is an ode to you, Fellow Nerd.
