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!

Champagne Friday: Glassware

By: Gary Westby | K&L Champagne Buyer

Champagne Friday: Glassware

Glassware for Champagne is a controversial subject and there are almost as many favorite choices as there are Champagne lovers. In the video segment I go through my own collection of Champagne glasses and talk about the differences and add my own opinions to the subject.

My strongest opinion is to keep your Champagne glasses, no matter what they are in rotation and use. Some of my worst Champagne experiences have come from drinking out of folks' “special occasion” flutes, only to find that they hadn’t been used in years and were full of hard-to-see dust that ruined the flavor of the wines. 

One of the glasses in the video segment is available at K&L, the Riedel Vinum Prestige Champagne flute, but you’ll have to log in to your account on our website to see the price…it is to low and they asked us not to publicize it!

A toast to you,

Gary
