"When I drink World Wide Stout -- a dark, roasty, and complex stout -- I think of how well this beer ages, the complexity it shows over time, and how this beer mirrors the finest qualities of someone I’m happy to call my good friend and drinking buddy, Sam Calagione. Sam and I have known each other a long time and his creativity and passion for brewing great beers is unparalleled.
"He was the first American brewer that I brewed a collaboration beer with (called SAVOR Flowers) that was released for SAVOR in DC a few years ago. We brainstormed this beer together by chatting about brewing, life, ingredients, and some big ideas we had for craft beer. When I drink World Wide Stout, I think of Sam and all the ideas he has for making great beer and for elevating the craft beer industry."
