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!

While I stand by the fact that $35 is a helluva deal for good Brunello, which can cost upwards of $50 or $75 bottle, it's definitely not suited to every budget. But at just $8.99, this Wednesday's wine is both affordable and fantastic!

No Way Rosé

I didn’t think I would need to start this post with a defense of rosé, but after conducting a little poll on Facebook, I’ve discovered that there are still a handful of you who cringe whenever someone suggests: “drink pink.” Which means our job—rescuing rosé from the cloying clutches of White Zinfandel—is not done. We will not rest until “no way rosé” is a thing of the past.

Foodwoolf's Bourbon-Soaked Cherries

Photo by Brooke Burton of Food WoolfRemember the old axiom "Waste not, want not?" Well it's especially true when talking about your farmers' markert haul. Blueberries like tart poprocks, tomatoes so sweet you finally understand why they're considered a fruit and figs with paper-thin skins are incredibly perishable. But you can prolong the deliciousness of summer's fleeting flavors with time's tastiest preservative: booze.
