Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout just re-released

BeerPulse - Tue, 07/18/2017 - 16:51

[Press Release:]

** Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout Release Marks the Beer’s Grand Quinquennial

Celebrate extreme beer geekery with Hop-Con 5.0 on July 19

(Escondido, CA) – Extreme beer geekery meets the collective goings on of extreme geekery beginning the week of July 10 when Stone Brewing releases the latest regeneration of its nerdiest collaboration beer—Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout. The specialty imperial stout in 22-ounce bottles and draft will invade retailers, bars and restaurants in select markets nationwide.

Returning in galactic glory, the collaborative trio composed of Stone Executive Chairman, co-founder & self-proclaimed beer geek Greg Koch, Fark.com creator & craft beer-loving Drew Curtis, and web celeb & actor Wil Wheaton developed a recipe that pulls from each of their individual backgrounds and predilections. The specialty imperial stout draws its huge flavor from wheat (Wil’s contribution), pecans and bourbon barrels (two homages to Drew’s home of Kentucky) and Greg’s lifelong quest for pushing the limits of “Why the hell not?” to make bigger, bolder beers. The result is a beer bursting with a plethora of aromatics and flavors: cocoa, coffee, licorice, oak, nuts, vanilla and, of course, bourbon. It’s perfect for a warm summer evening, a cozy winter’s night or the approaching destruction of the entire human race (be it externally or internally inflicted).

The bottle art for the 2017 edition was entrusted to heralded comic book writer and artist Walt Simonson, best known for his work on Marvel Comics’ Thor. Simonson also lends his talents to other comics such as Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, and if the front of the bottle doesn’t already give it away, Alien.

At 13 percent alcohol by volume, the unearthly imperial stout may be enjoyed fresh, or cellared for months or years for rich flavors to mature and develop even more prevalent dark cocoa, coffee and nut flavors. We recommend storing bottles in a cool, dark cellar. Or deep, dark space.

“Five years of this proverbial tradition means our fans can now enjoy a five-year vertical,” said Greg Koch, Stone Brewing executive chairman & co-founder. “I think I can speak for all three of us when I say that Drew, Wil and I can’t wait for this momentous w00tstout occasion. We’re more than excited to revisit the past five years of two nerds and a passionate beer geek collaborating on one really good beer.”

A beer of such grandeur deserves a celebration of equal fanfair. In a festival dedicated to the convergence of geek culture and beer culture, Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout will hence be honored on July 19, 2017, at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station. Hop-Con 5.0: The w00tstout Festival is an annual celebration of nth-degree beer geekery, where attendees will enjoy:

Fifteen 3-ounce beer samples per guest, 5 of which are w00tstout
Opportunity to sample the full five-year vertical
A commemorative Hop-Con 5.0 glass
Unlimited plays at Mike’s #HOPCADE
Gourmet food stations with unlimited tastings

Five bars will serve the best drafts, collaborations and creations from Hop-Cons of yesteryear. There will be more than 80 beers on tap, including all five vintages to sample the full vertical, and three custom cask variations of 2017’s Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout.

This year, a special big-screen showing of Night Flight: Born Again will be aired during the event in the movie courtyard. The tribute to the most radically fun, nostalgically cranium-busting television program is a tribute featuring some of the weirdest and wildest Night Flight moments of all time.

With each admission to Hop-Con, fans may purchase a signed lithograph of the bottle artwork designed by Walt Simonson, with 100% of proceeds going to Hero Initiative. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit stonebrewing.com/hopcon.

[Press Release:]

New Belgium Brewing Names Steve Fechheimer CEO
Leadership team evolves at the nation’s fourth-largest craft brewery

(Fort Collins, CO) – New Belgium Brewing is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Fechheimer as Chief Executive Officer. Steve will oversee New Belgium’s executive team, short-term strategy, industry leadership, and day-to-day operations. Steve joins New Belgium from Beam Suntory, the world’s third-largest premium spirits company.

Steve replaces Kim Jordan, New Belgium’s co-founder and former CEO, who has been serving as interim CEO. Kim will continue to serve as the Executive Chair of the Brewery’s Board of Directors and will work with the Board to oversee long-term strategy and vision for New Belgium.

“We are so excited to welcome Steve to New Belgium,” said Jordan. “His expertise at strategy development and execution in the high-end world of spirits, coupled with our 26 years of solid brewing and branding, is a perfect setup for the kind of dynamic future New Belgium is planning. Steve is smart and driven while also being approachable, and we’re all excited about the perfect cultural and business fit. We took our time to find a terrific candidate and feel very lucky that we’ve done just that.”

Steve most recently served as Chief Strategy Officer at Beam Suntory. In that capacity, he led organic growth initiatives such as route-to-market design and distributor negotiations. He also led acquisitions, divestitures, the creation of global partnerships and the overall strategic planning process. In his nearly eight-year tenure at Beam Suntory, Steve has had wide ranging experiences including senior roles in marketing, sales, finance and IT.

“I’m excited and humbled by the opportunity to lead such a wonderful company,” said Fechheimer. “New Belgium, with its incredible history and heritage, has an amazingly bright future, and I look forward to working with Kim, the leadership team and all of the nearly 800 coworkers to build upon our great foundation.”

Prior to Beam Suntory, Steve served as Chief Operating Officer of Sierra Club Green Home, and also as a consultant at The Boston Consulting Group and Marakon Associates. Steve holds an MBA from the University of Chicago and earned his undergraduate degree from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

Steve is moving to Fort Collins and will start in his new position as CEO in mid-August.

New Belgium is also excited to announce the appointment of Joe Davis as Chief Operating Officer and Jenn Vervier as interim Vice President of Marketing. Joe has been a member of New Belgium’s leadership team since 2013 and, in addition to being promoted to this new position, will continue to serve as the company’s General Counsel. Jenn assumes oversight of Marketing responsibilities at New Belgium after the recent departure of Ruairi Twomey. Jenn has been a dynamic leader within the company for more than 20 years and previously served as Director of Strategy and Sustainability.
