Skeleton Park: Autumn Fyre

4.5% ABV

It's late August, and while most Canadians are busy squeezing the most from our waning summer season, our brewmaster is hard at work crafting our next seasonal release for the cooler months ahead.

Many of our fans have fond memories of this Grätzer-style ale, and we've had many requests to bring this brew back. So, by popular demand, we're pleased to announce that our Autumn Fyre will be returning in mid-September 2020.
Once popular in Upper Canada, Grätzer-style ales like this vanished after prohibition.
Oak-smoked wheat gives our Autumn Fyre its distinct fall flavour.

Grätzer-style ales date back to the 15th century, when the Prussian Empire controlled parts of Europe. A version of the style became popular in Upper Canada when small breweries began roasting their malt over oak fires.Prohibition put an end to craft beer production in Ontario, and Grätzer vanished, never to be brewed again in these parts... until we resuscitated the recipe for the enjoyment of modern beer lovers. Rejoice!


| Keelboat Racing

The 3rd (and final) of our Frostbite Series races will be held this Sunday Oct 25 (skippers meeting at 0930, start at 1030). Please remember to comply with the recommended safety precautions. We are hoping for a good turnout; it will be our last sailing hurrah of the year! F&B service will be available until 3 pm.

Due to the COVID-related constraints imposed upon us and having had only a small portion of our usual racing this year, we will be postponing our end of year Awards Dinner until sometime 2021. We will likely combine it with the Spring Sailors Evening in late April. However, we'd still like to recognise special achievements from this past year, for presentation next year. The "Nomination Form" for our Special Awards is available on the SAILING / KEELBOAT RACING page on the KYC website. Please complete your nominations while memories are fresh and submit by email to by Nov 30.
