What We're Drinking



The Freewheel line with a couple of English friends.

It takes a lot of beer to keep the wine business running smoothly. Here in Redwood City, we are very fortunate to have a great English style ale producer right in our backyard: Freewheel Brewing Company. The staff of K&L are fictures at our local pub, and it is a rare moment when one of us isn't there having a pint and a bite of their excellent food. We are also lucky enough to be the first place to offer their bottled beer for sale. If you have never had it, the Freewheel Brewing "FSB" Freewheel Special Bitter, California (500ml) is the benchmark in fresh, balanced, smashable ale. We will do our best to keep some in stock for you, the customer too!

Clyde Recommends Holiday Wines, a Radio Show, and

I hope all of you have a healthy and happy holiday season and a fine 2006. Can you believe 2006 already? Everything from about 1960-2005 is a big blur. And the year 2006 will be K&L’s 30th Anniversary-time flies when you are having fun. Winewise, I have two gems to serve with your holiday meals-in fact they are good to enjoy all of the time. From Marlborough New Zealand, try the zippy refreshing 2004 Griffin Sauvignon Blanc ($10.99). Lip-smacking delicious! For a delicious Pinot, try the 2003 Kalinda Pinot Noir ($14.99) from Oregon. Bright, fruity, and lush. Two plugs: K&L is the wine shop featured on the radio show “A Matter of Taste” airing on Sundays on 910AM (KNEW) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. David and Rachel Kane have a great show. You should listen in! As for the book I enjoyed “50 Simple Ways to Live a Longer Life” by Suzanne Bohan and Glenn Thompson (two faithful K&L customers). Chapter 32 is my favorite: the health benefits of wine! Have a great 2005 ending and a fabulous 2006. —Clyde Beffa Jr
