Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout features artwork from comic artist
Imperial stout beer also available in aluminum cans
Stone Brewing is adding some extra POW! BAM! WHAM! to its annual Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout. A collaboration between FARK’s Drew Curtis, nerd royalty Wil Wheaton and Stone Brewing co-founder Greg Koch, the imperial stout beer dons artwork from comic artist Alan Davis, who has worked on some comic book series, including “Uncanny X-Men” and “Justice League of America.” As part of the label design, Davis depicts a hero who channels Stone’s iconic gargoyle’s guardian powers to battle against the evils of the world of beer, the company says. “I love love love this beer,” said Greg Koch, Stone Brewing executive chairman and co-founder, in a statement. “I love the intensity and depth of its flavor profile, and I love how it came together between Drew, Wil, me and our brewing team. And fans have made it clear that they love this beer all the way to the depths of its awesomeness like we do. Yeah, I love that too.” Traditionally in bottles and on draft only, Stone debuts Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout in 12-ounce six-pack cans this year, making it all-the-more-accessible before, during and after spandex-clad battles and masked combat, the company quips.
