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: Champagne in Depth on Community Radio

Click for Gary's interview on KWMR's "The Place We Live"  By: Gary Westby | K&L Champagne Buyer

Happy Champagne Friday!

This past weekend after Thanksgiving gave me pause to think of how thankful I am for community radio. Cinnamon and I listen to college, community and public radio almost constantly at home and cherish the independent programming, both music and information that these stations bring. Last month, I was lucky enough to get invited by Marc Matheson (who is a K&L customer!) for an interview on KWMR radio (90.5 FM Point Reyes, 89.9 FM Bolinas and everywhere online) on his great weekly show The Place We Live. This was extra special to me, since I spent a lot of time as a DJ and volunteer at KZSU, the Stanford University radio station.

We spoke for a full hour, and in the process covered a tremendous amount of ground on the specifics of what makes Champagne such a special place and such a unique wine. We covered everything from the grape varietals (including the rare ones that are making a comeback), to the soil (which allows for not only the special flavor of the wines but also the ageing of them), to travel in the region. I hope that you will find some time to listen to the archive here. I promise you it will put you in a Champagne drinking mood, and I hope that it will be informative. In this age of sound bites and talking points, I really appreciate the focused, in depth interview style that Marc has mastered!

A toast to you!
