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!

Brick's Beer News: Killer Tasting Next Friday 4/27 in Redwood City!

By: Bryan Brick | K&L Beer Buyer

Hey Everyone,

Just a simple early reminder about next week’s Friday Night Beer Tasting. So, mark your calendars, Friday, April 27th from 5-6:30 in the Redwood City Tasting Bar. The line-up is looking good so far with possibilities including beers from The Bruery, Jester King, Almanac, Ballast Point and many others. Also I’m hoping to open up some really wild German vinegars made with beer and mead. Fun stuff! I’ll post the full line-up early next week on our site and shoot it out to all of you as well.

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.
