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!

What Size is Your Orange Jumpsuit?

In an effort to stay out of prison, we had to suspend wine shipments to Texas. Recently we got served with a formal cease and desist order from the friendly lone star state's Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC). Seems they believe that Bordeaux or Brunello is ok in Texas as long as it doesn't come by way of an out-of-state retailer like K&L. The Pulitzer Prize winning Dallas Morning News has written their own story on the lawsuit that K&L and other retailers filed against the TABC, fighting back against this insanity. Read the Dallas Morning News coverage. We are part of a group called the Specialty Wine Retailers Association (SWRA) and just recently took the fight with Texas to the next level, filing a lawsuit against the TABC, challenging the constitutionality of Texas' laws prohibiting adult consumers from purchasing and receiving wine directly from out-of-state retailers. Read details about the lawsuit here.
