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!

What Did You Drink This Weekend?

Green Flash/St. Feuillien "Bière De L’Amitié" Collaboration Ale after a long day's labor on our new house.Hard labor and beer go together like sun and sand, so it's no surprise that after a long weekend tearing out sheetrock, ripping up carpets, sanding and painting at my new house, my husband, father-in-law and I were ready for a cold brew. We thoroughly enjoyed a bottle of the Green Flash/St. Feuillien collabortation "Bière De L’Amitié," which translates to mean "Friendship Beer." This Rye and Wheat-based beer had an earthy quality, with lots of bright citris, coriander and cardamom spice. It had just a splash of the lactic quality I love in Belgian beers, and a refreshing, clean finish that washed away the day's rougher edges and sent us of to dreamland easily and quickly.
