At the 2008 Comic Con panel, he was rewarded with a six-pack of Dharma Beer, after asking if they had brought along some of the "Gin" they were talking about so much. At the following year's panel, he drank one of the beers during his turn for asking a question (claiming he "needed his constant" in order to grasp the plot of the show), after which Damon personally introduced Bob Stencil to the audience, and presented him with a t-shirt depicting a custom-made Dharma logo with his name on it.
