For some reason this didn't happen back in like 1996, but today we found out that Stone Cold is getting his own craft beer thanks to a partnership with El Segundo Brewing Company:

If you're going to take Stone Cold's word for it, it's a "badass beer." If you're going to take El Segundo's word for it, Austin's "Broken Skull IPA":

"[B]oasts a big mid palate flavor from ample use of Cascade, Chinook, and Citra hops. The finish is wonderful with hops fading quickly and a polite bitterness that trails off easily."

Keep in mind that they're probably, you know, a little biased.

For now you can be the judge of it only if you're in California...:

...as it'll debut for public consumption at El Segundo Brewing (near Los Angeles) on Friday, November 13, because Stone Cold (and also probably El Segundo Brewing) said so. Austin himself will be tending bar that afternoon from 1-8 P.M. Get your tickets now. Kick in the nuts not included.
