On April 10 the Business & Beer networking group returned to Torrance production brewery, Monkish Brewing Company. Monkish Brewing Company is a local microbrewery that specializes in Belgian style ales; it also happens to be Tanya’s favorite local craft brewery, and since it was her birthday it made sense to hold our April gathering there. The fact that Vella Pizza was on hand with their mobile brick oven pretty much sealed the deal for her. We had a nice turnout with quite a few first time attendees joining us. One thing is for certain; Monkish is sure a lot busier these days than when we first started bringing Business & Beer there two years ago. It is good to see our local craft beer scene doing so well.

The May gathering of Business & Beer will be held May 8 at Smog City Brewing Company in Torrance. Smog City Brewing is a production brewery with an extremely wide variety of craft beers available. I would not be over-stating it to suggest that they pretty much have every style of beer you can think of covered; from Pilsners to barrel aged porters and about everything in-between. If you have not been to Smog City lately I am positive they have something you have yet to try. As they are a tasting room, they do not serve food but you are welcome to bring your own or have something delivered.

Be sure to tell your friends about Business & Beer if business networking is important to them; especially if they enjoy craft beer. We meet at a different microbrewery or brewpub in the South Bay area. We currently have seven locations we visit with another one to be added in the next couple of months. It is a great way to visit the South Bay’s craft brewers and do some networking so you can write it off on your taxes. You do not need an invitation to come and you are encouraged to bring your significant other. You can sign up to our mailing list or Like Us on Facebook to be kept in the loop of upcoming events.
