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!

Food-Pairing Friday: Buffalo Wings

Honey-Sriracha Glazed Buffalo Wings by White on Rice Couple.With my husband on "Mancation" last weekend, I planned on doing girlie things: watching romantic comedies, getting a pedicure, taking baths. But when I remembered that the New England Patriots were playing in the AFC playoff game, all that went by the wayside, and instead I found myself glued to the TV on Sunday watching one very depressing football game. The loss was brutal, but it was made even worse by my game-day snacks, which were limited to leftovers of last week's healthy Catalan Chickpea Stew. Delicious to be sure, but not exactly what I crave when I'm watching football.

This weekend I'm ready. Armed with a recipe for Honey-Sriracha Glazed Buffalo Wings, posted by our friends Todd and Diane at White on Rice Couple. These homemade wings are mouth-on-fire spicy, slightly sweet, just a little bit tangy and satisfyingly crunchy. Of course, buffalo wings call for beer--something light and refreshing, but still well-made--so I'll be sure to have on hand a six-pack of Oskar Blues "Mama's Lil' Yella' Pils" Pilsner, which tastes like a proper German Pilsner and is proof that good beer can come in cans. 

If you decide to whip up a batch of these buffalo wings, and you or your crowd prefers wine, keep it simple with a liter-box of the 2009 Yellow + Blue Torrontes made by former Kermit Lynch staffer Matt Cain. This Argentine boxed wine is priced to party at just $9.99, and is wonderfully dry, with spicy Mirabelle plum, apricot and white flower notes complemented by a zippy, clean palate. Perfect for something spicy and proof once again that it's what's inside the packaging that counts.
