When brewers from out of town visit during Philly Beer Week, they typically bring with them some special, rare or one-off brews, and maybe some t-shirts, stickers and other swag. But when the man behind the kettles (or is it beneath?) at Chambly, Quebec, Canada’s Unibroue, Jerry Vietz, comes to the Khyber tomorrow, he’ll be bringing more that just suds. A rep for the brewery told Grub that in addition to bringing two new entries to the Canadian brewer’s portfolio (one is rumored to have something to do with the Mayan calendar), Vietz will also have a supply of fresh cheese curds with him that he picked up from Fromage Riviera in Sorel Tracy, Quebec on his way here. Why? So drinkers at the Khyber can get a taste of proper poutine while sipping Unibroue’s offerings. The poutine starts flying and the beers start flowing at 3 p.m., and will be on through 6 p.m. Sure beats a bumper sticker, doesn’t it?
