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!

The Ultimate Wine Gift for 2006!

Just one case of wine for this year’s gift, but that case is the most famous Bordeaux from the 20th Century: 1945 Château Mouton-Rothschild. Mr. Parker scores it 100 points and says: “A consistent 100 point wine (only because my point scale stops at that number), the 1945 Mouton is truly one of the immortal wines of the century… this remarkably youthful wine (only light amber at the edge) is mindboggling! Will it last another 50 years?” And the cellar this wine will come from is the Mahler-Besse cellar in Bordeaux, the best wine cellar in Bordeaux! In fact, you will be able to go to the cellar (two of you) accompanied by me to pick out your case and have lunch at the Mahler-Besse property. See our website for the particulars! The price is $150,000 which is 40% less than the wine just sold for at auction. Have a great holiday season. —Clyde Beffa Jr
