Wil Weaton geeks out over Stone Farking Wheaton beer

Stone Farking Wheaton, the epic beer collaboration between Drew Curtis, Wil Wheaton, and Greg Koch, hits markets today. You don’t have to be a geek of any sort to like this beer, but it wouldn’t hurt. Wil Weaton does a great job of explaining how he sees geeks and why there is nothing wrong with being that passionate about something you love. If you still fear the social stigma, just go with Greg Koch’s more user friendly term, “unabashed enthusiast.”

Sometimes people are pulled together by fate. Other times, they are attracted by the sheer love of a shared passion. Both fate and passion happen to be the catalyst for Fark.com founder Drew Curtis, Stone Brewing Co. Co-Founder and CEO Greg Koch, and a actor and internet wunderkind Wil Wheaton to get together on a warm spring day to make a monster of a beer built to celebrate geekdom. After all, beer is the great equalizer. Take a look as the guys discuss why they’d want to make a beer themed after Kentucky Derby Pie and pontificate on the value of geekdom and why it’s just a bit more pervasive than you might think…
