Be Our Guest

The Canadian Food and Beverage Industry has been hit extremely hard by Covid-19. KYC is no exception. Limited seating and a general anxiety to dine out has had a big impact on our bottom line this year. Despite having the best waterfront patio in Kingston, sales are down over 50% from last year. With patio days nearing the end, we can expect the industry to take an even bigger hit.

During these difficult times, in order to maintain the high quality of service and food choices that we have come to love at KYC, I would like to ask you to support your Club more often. Enjoy the cozy and exclusive atmosphere of the clubhouse or perhaps take a taste of KYC home with you to share with friends and family in your own home. We have many events on the horizon so we hope to see you soon!

Fuel and Pump Out Hours

Tristan and Henry are starting to work on the seasonal cleanup and shutdown of the fleet and the Club so they may need a few more minutes but fuel and pump out services will be available 9-5 Monday to Saturday until haul out at the end of October.

Beaus: Juiced up New England IPA

4.5% ABV

Beau’s Juiced Up is a hazy pale ale that doubles down on delivering big, New England style juicy hop aroma and flavour, at a laid-back 4.5% ABV. It’s soft on the palate, and really refreshing with a bright finish. It hits all the right notes of citrus, tropical and fruity, with a hint of those dank, sticky hop resins we love.

History & Style

New England style pale ales (NEPAs) are relatively new in the North American craft beer landscape. They are purposely hazy with a defined juicy hop character. They focus on the expression of bold hop flavour and aroma, while limiting hop bitterness. Juiced Up is a lower-ABV and certified organic version of this style.

Tasting Notes

This NEPA pours hazy gold, with a thick white foam. The aroma offers citrus juice impressions. The flavour is equally fruity: a mix of citrus, tropical and stone fruit impressions, with a pleasing hint of dank resin. The mouthfeel is soft, and the finish is bright and refreshing.

| Wine of the Month

Casal Sobreiro

Portugal produces a plethora of grapes, including international familiars like Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, but mostly indigenous varietals. The most popular red wines produced in the Lisboa region are made from Tinta Roriz (Aragones) and Touriga Nacional. Commonly blended together, or with others like Touriga Franca and Trincadeira, these local stars perform well in the diverse microclimates across the country, which produce an array of styles depending on where they are grown. 

Tasting Notes

With medium depth and fairly opaque at the core. Plum coloured with reflective cherry hues when swirled, and a very slender, pale rim. Concentrated notes of blackberry cordial, cherry pie and brambly berries give a depth of fruity aromas. Raspberry leaf, menthol and eucalyptus give a fresh herbal pop with a bit of cracked pepper to add lightly spicy notes. Cocoa powder, black licorice (like the allsorts candies Grandma had) and cherry chocolate add baking spice and fruitcake-like flavours. A crowd-pleasing wine that is a good 'any time' drinker because of its medium-light body, medium acidity, and soft texture created by its light tannins. Showing more bitter and tart on the palate, we find wild raspberry, cherries and red currants, with the addition of briar patch, wet leather and plum skin. There is still a bit of leafiness and a hint of cocoa powder, adding just enough complexity to keep this interesting yet quaffable.
