Didnít have the hugest selection of beer when I was there, but still, some good offerings. More of a wine store, and theyíve got plenty of that. The staff is super friendly, too. You can also order online and pick up at the Redwood City and Los Angeles locations.

While I havenít been to the LA location of K&L yet this is definitely the weakest of the locations that Iíve been to (only this and Redwood City). The beer selection is tiny, just a few cases stacked up next to the counter. On top of that, and what the other ratings completely neglect to mention, is that you canít buy anything (at least not beer) if you donít buy it online or over the phone first. Itís an attempt to keep the bums from buying booze there. So basically you either go to another location to order something or do it online and decide to pick it up in San Francisco. I understand the concept but I donít agree with it at all. It was suggested to me however to just do it from my phone there in the store and then pick it up immediately. Of course these guys donít have squat for beer on location so ordering online wouldnít do me much good if I want something right away. In fact, the reason that I went in at all was that I was at 21A just down the street and wanted to try a Fireside Chat but they donít have it on tap, they donít serve the cans in the pub, and they donít sell singles to go (I didnít want a six pack). I was told by the bartender that K&L probably has it but Iím guessing that she hadnít actually been there to know about this stupid rule. Frickin a.

Other than that mess the people are nice and if you order ahead of time they have access to all the same stuff the other locations do. So thatís a plus. Prices are the same high garbage but itís primarily a high end wine shop, and this one is in the city, so what do you expect? I will not be frequenting this place.
