Several months ago, Wil did a collaboration brew with Drew Curtis and Aisha Tyler for Stone Brewing Company called W00tstout 2.0. Wil and Drew did a similar brew last year with Greg Koch from Stone, but decided to change up the recipe a tiny bit and bring in a new person for the brewing. The result is AMAZING. Everyone has their favorite so I’ll just go ahead a say that I love the 2.0 version *slightly* more than the original.
A couple of months after brewing 2.0, Wil and I went back to Stone where he brewed a White Sage IPA. This one is SUPER yummy. Our friends, Bobak Ferdowsi and Rileah Vanderbilt did their own collaborations with Stone as well. And as yummy as these brews are, they aren’t available in bottled distribution. Only the W00tstout and W00tstout 2.0, and even that is a limited distribution itself. ARGH!
When Greg Koch decided to put in a company store in Pasadena (it’s a tap room, beer in bottle supply, and merchandise location) he asked us if there was a local charity that we loved because he wanted to do events at their new location and donate a portion of proceeds to an awesome charity. The company store is less than a block away from the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, so that was a no-brainer. I got Stone’s event and charity coordinator in touch with the event coordinator at PHS, and they’ve been working together ever since.
And now to the fun part!
On Wednesday, September 24th from 7 to 9pm at the Stone Brewing Company Store in Pasadena, Wil and I will be taking over the taps and pouring beers! Not just any beers, though. We’ll be pouring original W00tstout, W00tstout 2.0, White Sage IPA, Quadrotriticale, Suede, and Mocha Milk Stout. Of course, I’m going to have to taste all of these before serving them to the public. I…uh…need to make sure they aren’t poisonous…or something. Yea, that’s it.
If you can join us, eat some dinner, take the Metro or an Uber car or some other form of designated driver, bring your growlers if you want to take some home, and come have some tasty beers poured by me and Wil! And the best part? Stone is donating a portion of the proceeds from this event to teamwheaton.org! EVERYONE WINS!
