What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

Brick's Beer News: Design Your Own Beer Club! Plus Tons of New Arrivals and Our Upcoming Fall Tasting

By: Bryan Brick | K&L Beer Buyer

Too long...

...is exactly how long it has been since my last Beer update. Sure, there are plenty of excuses, but I won’t bore you with them. We have tons of new beers in stock that I’ll get to in a minute but first I need to take care of some bookkeeping. First of all there is a Beer Tasting coming up in Redwood City on Friday, October 26th from 5-6:30pm. I hope all of you local folks can make it. I’ll be focusing on new releases with an emphasis on Fall Seasonal and the new Fresh Hop beers that have been hitting the shelves recently.

Secondly, I wanted to alert many of you to a cool feature we have available to you. Through our Personal Sommelier Service, we can get you or your loved ones interesting beers on a monthly basis. You pick how many bottles you’d like, what styles you like, how much you want to spend and for how long and we’ll do the rest. Or if you’re the beer guy/gal that has everything why don’t you spread the wealth; this could nail down a big chunk of your Holiday shopping with just a few key strokes.

Brick's Beer News: Killer Tasting Next Friday 4/27 in Redwood City!

By: Bryan Brick | K&L Beer Buyer

Hey Everyone,

Just a simple early reminder about next week’s Friday Night Beer Tasting. So, mark your calendars, Friday, April 27th from 5-6:30 in the Redwood City Tasting Bar. The line-up is looking good so far with possibilities including beers from The Bruery, Jester King, Almanac, Ballast Point and many others. Also I’m hoping to open up some really wild German vinegars made with beer and mead. Fun stuff! I’ll post the full line-up early next week on our site and shoot it out to all of you as well.

Cheers,

Bryan Brick
