Ted's Trivia Night – Friday, February 8th 7 pm

We would like to challenge all KYC members (new and old, sailors and non-sailors) to participate in the Annual KYC Trivia Night now to be held on Friday, February 8th from 7:00 pm. Mark your calendars and get your crew all pumped up for an evening that always proves to be entertaining, fun, informative and often somewhat humiliating for all but the winning contestants! We are pleased to once again have the considerable skills, depth of knowledge and crowd controlling expertise of Past Commodore Ted Ison as our Quizmaster. Questions will be sailing related as well as of general interest – something for salty dogs and landlubbers alike! We encourage members to form teams (max 6 members/team) based on boat crew, family associations, or simply smart friends that you think will know the answers. There will be lots of opportunity to scramble together a team from those at the bar, please submit your team entry to manager@kingstonyachtclub.com no later than February 6th so we can make the appropriate arrangements. Remember…it is not what you know ...or who you know ...it is if you know someone that thinks they know all the answers and you can get them on your Trivia Team!

Two updates:

start time: 7pm

Please RSVP to manager@kingstonyachtclub.com

| Beer of the Week

E.S.B.

Extra Special Bitter 5.6% ABV
 

Beau’s Farm Table Series are sessionable beers brewed true to a classic or emerging style. The E.S.B. is a flavourful, approachable ale, as much a British staple as a double- decker bus. Expect a mellow harmony of biscuity malt and slight fruity notes, along with a touch of sweetness balanced by the English-variety hops.

History & Style

E.S.B. is an English-style pale ale. Despite the fact that E.S.B. stands for Extra Special Bitter, the style is actually renowned for achieving great balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Our version of this classic style is made with Goldings hops and fermented with English Ale yeast. The label art is a nod to the iconic and quirky history of British motoring.

Tasting Notes

E.S.B. pours clear copper with a tight white foam. The aroma offers both biscuity malt and floral hop notes. The flavour features balanced caramel sweetness and hop bitterness. The finish is remarkably smooth.
