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!

« Mature Champagne direct from Moet | Main | We LOVE our Steak & Claret! »

Tasting this Saturday May 10th!

The Champagne will be ready for you- come on over to K&L!

We just put the Champagne on ice that we will taste in all three retail locations, and I hope that you can join us. The theme will be highlights from the May Champagne newsletter, focusing on the most exciting wines from Scotty and I’s trip to Champagne last month. You can check out the newsletter here.  I hope that you can make it!

Scotty B will be pouring in San Francisco from noon until 3pm, I will pour in Redwood City from 1pm to 4pm, and Mari will pour in Hollywood from 3pm until 5:30pm. The cost will be $20, and it is a walk in event, so feel free to come anytime within the hours listed. Since I love to show Champagne from magnum, I will start with those in Redwood City for all the cuvees that we have in that size. Come early for the magnums in Redwood City!

We'll taste all these plus the 1999 Billecart-Salmon "Cuvée Nicolas François Billecart" NFB Brut Champagne!

Here is the lineup:

Michel Loriot "Authentic" Brut Champagne (previously Cuvee Reserve) $29.99/ $64.99 magnum

A toast to you, and hopefully with you!
