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!

It's not because I don't like Bordeaux (I do) or that I couldn't find any I could afford (I did), but because I have nowhere to put them. Same goes for the incredible 2007 Rhônes, 2004 Brunelli and 2002 vintage Champagnes. Now with the exceptional 2007 California vintage and 2009 German Rieslings coming to market and the already-legendary 2009 Bordeaux being sold pre-arrival (not to mention countless bottles from less talked about but equally cellar-worthy vintages from around the world) I'm beside myself. What's a girl in a small apartment in Southern California with an equally small budget (which she'd rather spend on wine than a ginormous cabinet) to do?
