Rarely do certain areas of my geekiness come into contact with each other. But, luckily I can drink beer with the majority of my geeky pursuits. Beer and comics? Done! Beer and movies? No brainer! Beer and cooking? Uh...duh! But beer melding
with one of my earliest memories of going to the movies and being enveloped by a whole new experience (and quite possibly was responsible for my love of movies and science fiction) is something to behold. Today my geeky Star Wars world and my Beer Geek world collided when I saw this tweet from nerd news blogger @toplessrobot: "...Imperial Stout Trooper... the Star Wars beer. http://is.gd/5gfIQ
I've never wanted anything more in my entire life."

New England Brewing Company
in Woodbridge, Connecticut is releasing a Russian imperial stout they have named Imperial Stout Trooper. According to the BeerAdvocate
's Beer News forum
it is to be released December 21. They don't have too wide of a distribution foot print so my chances of getting my hands on this fine brew in east Tennessee aren't good so a road trip might be in order. Hopefully, I won't have to make the Kessel Run to find some.
