One of the featured beers being poured will be Stone Brewing’s Farking Wheaton WOOt Stout.  This stout comes from the most unlikely yet intensely imaginative trio that is actor and uber-geek champion Wil Wheaton, alternative news website creator Drew Curtis and Stone CEO/Co-founder Greg Koch, comes an imperial stout unlike any ever made. Brewed with rye, wheat malt and pecans and partially aged in Bourbon whiskey barrels, this viscous yet silken brew erupts with an oaky, nutty bouquet and rich flavors of vanilla, toast and bitter chocolate.

St John’s is served by TriMet’s #44 and #75 bus lines and is a short ten-minute drive from downtown Portland.
