| February 8: Trivia Night
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
start time: 7pm

| FeBREWary - Week 2: Motueka Plisner
Pilsner 5.3% ABV
Beau’s Farm Table Series are sessionable beers brewed true to a classic or emerging style. Organic Motueka hops from New Zealand light up this classic European beer style with their tropical, citrusy brightness. The clean, crisp pilsner provides the perfect backdrop to let these juicy hops take centre stage.
History and Style
Motueka is a made-in-New Zealand hop variety, created by cross-breeding NZ hops with saaz, the go-to hop for Czech-style pilsner. The recipe uses only Motueka hops, added at different points during the brewing to show off their versatility and unique character. The label art is a screen-print style that hints at New Zealand – some things that fly, and … some things that don’t.
Riverhead Brewing Co.
Motueka Pilsner pours a slightly hazy deep gold, with a white foam. The aroma offers bright citrus notes of Meyer lemon and hints of baking spice. The flavour brings a brisk balance of soft malt and zippy hops. The finish is crisp and clean.
