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!

Alimentaria Day 4

Cross your fingers, folks! Oh heck, cross your toes, too! We may get the wine of Marques de Murrieta back in the store. They broke up with their last importer and have been out of the West Coast market for almost a year now. Boy do I miss their products. I tried all of their new releases, and they were awesome. As soon as we work out the issues, I will let everybody know! D.O. overload…Spain has somewhere around 65 Denominacion de Origen defined regions. Ucles, one of their newest, was making their debut at Alimentaria. It was the first time that I have tried wines from Ucles, which is an area in Southern Spain. More big fat reds…we’ll see how it goes. Cultural note of the day: while in the States 2 out of 3 ain’t bad, apparently in Spain, it’s 4 out of 5. Well, at least according to one rather flirtatious taxi driver. Saludos! -Anne Pickett
