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!

Thanksgiving Wine & Cheese Pairings with the Cheese Handler

Thanksgiving is just four days away! With all of the chopping and slicing, baking and roasting yet to be done, why not consider throwing in a cheese course--whether as a starter or as part of dessert--it's easy (read: no prep), delicious and goes great with wine! We were so enamored with the idea that we recruited our friend Paige Handler, the Cheese Handler, to pick out some tasty domestic cheeses for your Thanksgiving celebration, which we then paired with domestic wines. The results? Fresh pairings and wine selections that not only complement the cheeses Paige chose, but that have the potential to sing along with turkey and all the trimmings....

 

 

Just to recap, here are the pairings (all cheeses are available in SoCal at Joan's on Third; in NorCal try the Cheese Shop in Healdsburg, the Cheese Board Collective in Berkeley or the Milk Pail in Mountain View:

Fiscalini Bandage Wrapped Cheddar with the Sean Thackrey "Pleiades XIX" Old Vine Red Blend ($23.99)

Rogue Creamery Smokey Blue with the Green & Red "Chiles Canyon Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel ($19.99)

Coach Farm Triple Cream with Gruet New Mexico Brut Sparkling Wine ($13.99)
