| Featured Beer

Wag the Wolf

White I.P.A. 5% ABV

Wag the Wolf is a hazy white I.P.A. that packs bright and citrusy organic hops into every sip. Brewed with a substantial ratio of organic wheat to barley malts, its aromas of lemon and grapefruit lead into a finish that is lively and refreshingly hoppy.

History and Style

The white I.P.A. is a modern mash-up of two beer styles, a classic wheat ale and a bold American I.P.A. To brew Wag the Wolf we use organic Motueka and Rakau hops, and a late-addition hop technique to draw extra aroma from them. The Wag the Wolf artwork features a striking graphic wolf with heterochromatic eyes.

Tasting Notes

Wag the Wolf pours a hazy yellow with dense white foam. There is a burst of citrus with lemon and grapefruit on the nose along with banana notes. The flavour is similarly fruity; with an additional hints of papaya, peach and mild peppery notes. The bitterness is firm but not overwhelming. It has lively carbonation and a medium body. The finish is bright and balanced.

The Carruthers Series is tomorrow (2-3 short course races). Skippers Meeting at 0930 and first signal at 1030. Weather forecast is very windy. Decision about whether to race or perhaps postpone will be made at the Skippers Meeting.

We will need nominations for our KYC Special Awards. The Form is available now (as a PDF) from SAILING / KEELBOAT RACING area of our website. Printed forms will eventually be sprinkled liberally through the club. It's not too early to be thinking about worthy recipients, before memories fade... Please nominate many & often! Email nominations to or drop in the mail slot for Ken Martin.

Please welcome Galen Richardson and Mae Delange (QST members) as they help us with race management (and operating the Orange Peel) for the remainder of season. If there are club members who might be interested in a paid part-time position, helping with race management next year, please contact Ken Martin or the General Manager.

September series finishes with races on Oct 1 and 3. First signal for those 2 races will be at 1745 instead of usual 1800. We're hoping for nice sunsets to give us time to run reasonable length races!

The Sailing Committee met this past Wednesday to review the soon to be past year and start planning for next year. Please share your views on our Sailing programs and how they can improved, with the members listed below.
