Saber Madness at K&L!

We have been chopping off the tops of Champagne bottles as fast as we can drink them- who needs a stopper when you are ready to commit to finishing the bottle! One of our favorites was this magnum ($84.99) of Franck Bonville Brut Rosé that Mellyn expertly decapitated on Christmas Eve. It also comes in regular 750ml ($39.99) and half bottles ($21.99). Olivier Bonville adds 8% Pinot Noir Rouge from Ambonnay superstar Paul Dethune to his top class assembelage of grand cru, estate Chardonnay to create this fabulous rose. This is one of the most elegant, bright, refreshing rose Champagnes that we carry, yet it does not lack red cherry Pinot Noir authority. We can’t get enough- bring another to the block!

Brick on Beer: Two Big Beers and a Lot of Small Ones

By Bryan Brick | K&L Beer Buyer

Hey All,

So yeah, Firestone Walker "XV" Anniversary Ale, California 22oz (1 bottle limit per customer) $22.99 just walked in the door and I believe it will probably walkout just as quickly. Better get your order in now, I have no idea if we will get as much as we had of the XIV at this point, but my feelings are that we probably will not.

Also we just received a nice sized shipment of The Bruery "Four Calling Birds" Belgian Style Dark Strong Ale, California 750ml (3 bottle limit per customer) $11.99, so nicely sized in fact that I’ve upped the allocation per customer from 1 bottle to 3 bottles. Let’s consider this my Christmas present to you!
