Ready for another Business & Beer

Over the past year and a half that the Business & Beer networking group has been we have come to notice certain patterns as far as attendance levels are concerned. For instance, during the summer and Daylight Savings Time more people will show up for one of our events than might show up on a cold December evening. We know that the closer we are to Torrance, the greater the number of attendees; that is why we limit the geographical range of the craft breweries and brewpubs we meet at. There are a few places we would have liked to include in our rotation, but expecting people to fight traffic to go 10 miles further probably is not going to happen. Our January gathering of Business & Beer seemed to dispel one of these preconceived notions with the very large turnout we had at The Brewery at Abigaile. We had one of, if not the largest turnout of any of our prior visits to Abigaile which consisted of old and new members all with different networking goals, but all with an appreciation of American craft beer.

While our January Business & Beer was a great turnout, the next few months should be even better as we are growing not only with the number of attendees but we are adding new craft beer tasting rooms to our schedule as new craft breweries are opening in the South Bay. On February 13, 2014 Business & Beer will be meeting at the first production brewery to open in Redondo Beach; King Harbor Brewing Company. This event will also serve to be King Harbor’s soft open and they have lots of specials planned; you do not want to miss this. King Harbor Brewing Company is located at 182nd Street and Kingsdale which is just west of Hawthorne Boulevard. You can find more details by visiting In March we will be visiting Absolution Brewing Company and we will be visiting The Dudes’ Brewing Company in April.

As you can see, 2014 is going to be a great year for Business & Beer; you will not want to miss it. If you live or work in the South Bay area and networking plays an important role in your business development model, Business & Beer is an effective and fun way to accomplish this. We meet on the second Thursday of every month at a different brewery or brewpub in the South Bay. You can be kept in the loop by signing up to our email list or by Liking Us on Facebook.
