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!

I make mine with Yukon Gold potatoes, which are starchy, but more flavorful than Russets, shredded into fine strands that I then salt, drain of all their liquid, mix with a little egg, onion and flour and fry in olive oil until they're the color of honey. This year I'm going to top them with tangy creme fraiche andsavory homemade Goldrush applesauce, a slight tweak to a classic recipe by Suzanne Tracht of Jar
