Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout
Well it’s that that time again, another special release by Stone Brewing Co. This one is a big one, you have Drew Curtis the beer geek of Fark.com, you got the homebrewer/actor Wil Wheaton and throw in the man himself Sir Greg Koch and you get Farking Wheaton w00tstout. Greg introduced my wife and I to Wil Wheaton and have been lucky enough to talk to him on many occasions. His dedication to homebrewing, craft beer and the craft beer industry is right on. Before w00tstout was announced I’ve asked Wil and Greg about a collaboration together, their response..we don’t know, our schedules are really crazy. But, I knew they were already on it, that look they both had on was priceless. I’m glad it worked out and it turned out amazing!
