Business & Beer attendees

A nice group of networkers

The September 11 gathering of Business & Beer was held at The Brewery at Abigaile, the only brewery/brewpub in Hermosa Beach. While admittedly our Business & Beer events that are held north of Torrance seem to have lower turnouts, we had a pretty respectable group that consisted of two waves. Our initial group was a small mix of regulars and a couple first timers that all enjoyed the beer, food and networking. About five minutes after everyone left and before we had finished picking up after ourselves, a few more first timers showed up thereby making me realize the importance of including an end time for the events when we add them to the Business & Beer upcoming events. I apologize for not doing this two years ago when we started this. Officially our events run from 6:00-8:00 PM but this is not written in stone. Sometimes we have a larger group and time just flies by; since most tasting rooms close at 9:00 PM that is the latest we will stay but most people start leaving around 8:00. The drawing for the free beer is at 7:00; so you will want to be there by then.

Business & Beer will meet October 9th at King Harbor Brewing Company; currently the only craft brewery in Redondo Beach. This will be the second time we have met at King Harbor Brewing, the first time being their soft open that was held back in February. If you have not returned or been there lately you will be pleasantly surprised as there are more beers and much better seating than even a month ago. One thing you should know is that Thursdays are “bring your own mug night”; $5.00 fills your mug/stein; reasonable sizes only (no buckets allowed). The best mug brought in will win a free growler and fill from King Harbor Brewing; so come prepared to impress us all. The networking event runs from 6:00-8:00 PM. King Harbor Brewing Company is located at 2907 182nd Street in Redondo Beach.

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. We hope to have you join us soon. All upcoming Business & Beer
