Through its first few days, Philly Beer Week has had some pretty remarkable beer events. Many venues throughout the city have been packed, as beer enthusiasts have attended the events in droves.
Take, for example, the Founders Brewing Company event at Kite and Key. On a Monday afternoon at 5 p.m., which is hardly the most common time for city folks to be out at a bar drinking, Kite and Key was completely packed with patrons seeking to sample Founders’ high quality, high alcohol and highly rare beers. The two superstars were Canadian Breakfast Stout, a beer aged in maple and whiskey soaked wood with Sumatra and Kona coffee beans breakast stout, and Kenutkcy Breakfast Stout (KBS), an imperial stout brewed with coffee and chocolates before aged in bourbon barrels for an entire year. Both beers are among the top seven rated beers in the world, contain over nine percent alcohol and are only available for a limited time each year.
