Actor and "beer geek" stars in two spots for a limited-edition collaboration brew

British brewer Newcastle has enlisted actor and self-proclaimed "beer geek" Wil Wheaton to introduce its Newcastle Scotch Ale, made in conjunction with Edinburgh’s Caledonian Brewery.

The maker of Newcastle Brown Ale is releasing several limited-edition brews made with some of Europe’s oldest breweries, and Wheaton, himself a home brewer, stars in two humorous videos released this week.

"Newcastle Scotch Ale is a well-balanced, malt-forward brew with a delightful velvety finish," Wheaton says in one of the spots. "Basically, Newcastle and Caledonian made a kick-ass beer that does not suck."

Newcastle's "Collaboration Series" beers will roll out throughout 2015. Scotch Ale will be available in the United States through February 2015 in six- and 12-packs and on draught in select markets.
