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!

Hollywood High Note

Who needs celebrities when you've got star-caliber wine? I was thrilled to check out the brand spanking new Hollywood K&L store on a visit to the southland last month, and things are sure looking dapper there. Besides a super friendly staff, the spot's got A-list wine, a swank tasting area just primed for fabulous in-house tastings and an unbeatable location in the heart of revitalized Hollywood. If you're down south permanently or on vaca, be sure to check the spot out. I've posted a few snaps from my visit here, including a look at the spot's interior (looks like the San Fran store but with a more contemporary urban loft feel), a shot of me with store manager Tom Martinez (down from Nor Cal) & helpful staffer Joel Nicholas, and some other gratuitous shots including more bubbly and myself alongside a gigantic bottle they've got on display there. Who doesn't love a wine store with gargantuan bottles and shopping carts full of bubbly sitting around?!! Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about the July GRAND OPENING - sure to be a red carpet affair. --- Courtney Cochran, aka Your Personal Sommelier, provides personalized wine services to adventurous wine collectors, purveyors and enthusiasts, making wine accessible and fun for those who think outside the mainstream wine box.
