(Escondido, CA) – Actress, Aisha Tyler, recently hosted an episode of The Adam Carolla Show and hinted about a new beer that she would be a part of, set to “premiere at Comic-Con” in July. Little did we know…
On Friday, Stone Brewing Co. unveiled w00tstout 2.0 to email newsletter subscribers. Fark.com creator, Drew Curtis, and Actor, Wil Wheaton, will again be part of this year’s edition with Tyler joining the project for the first time. This beer is part of a parallel unaffiliated event during Comic-Con called Hop-Con though we have reached out to Stone to see if the beer may be part of the official 2014 event. The beer hit distribution this year though Friday’s announcement only specified that w00tstout 2.0 would be “coming to Southern California.” So we’ll have to wait and see if it will hit further distribution.
The announcement below…
Stone w00tstout 2.0 is coming to Southern California on July 14th
Last year’s w00tstout collaborators are back for round two! Thespian and renaissance man Wil Wheaton, online news guru Drew Curtis and their new cohort, multi-talented actress and comedian Aisha Tyler collaborated on Stone w00tstout 2.0, a massive yet seductive imperial stout brewed with wheat, rye, pecans and stone-ground chocolate (a new addition to this year’s recipe), then partially aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels.
Our Most Heroic Bottle Artwork Yet
Famed comic artist Dave Gibbons, creator of the Watchmen series, worked up the fine bottle art for Stone w00tstout 2.0 in exchange for a donation to The Hero Initiative (www.heroinitiative.org), a charity organization providing retirement funds for golden-age comic book artists.
