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!

Chalk Twins in the Tasting Bar Tonight

Tonights Line Up- Ready for you to come and taste!

Sherry and Champagne together in the tasting bar? It sounds like a strange combination, but the two wines have much in common, and tonight in Redwood City from 5pm-6:30pm Joe Manekin and I will be exploring those similarities. I hope you can join us, the cost is $10.

Both of these wines are born from chalk soil and are the products of extreme climates. Both are blended across time, with most of the wine from both areas coming from multiple harvests mixed together. Both are noble wines. Come and discover these together tonight:

Bruno Michel Premier Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne $39.99
Valdespino "Deliciosa" Manzanilla Sanlucar de Barrameda $19.99
Launois "Veuve Clemence" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne $39.99
Rey Fernando de Castilla Fino Jerez $21.99
Amaury Coutelas "Cuvée Louis Victor" Brut Champagne $39.99
Valdespino "Viejo CP" Palo Cortado Jerez $44.99
