Business & Beer at Strand Brewing

Ready for some Business & Beer

The Business & Beer networking group held their last gathering for 2013 on December 12 at Strand Brewing Company in Torrance. Even though it was a rather chilly evening and I know some of our regular attendees were dealing with Christmas shopping and other events around town, we had a very respectable turnout consisting of regular attendees, part-time attendees and even some first timers. It is nice to look around and see that virtually everyone is conversing with someone and potential business is being done. If nothing else, relationships are being built and personal relationships are the best way to build business relationships. Thank you again to Strand Brewing Company for hosting four Business & Beers in 2013; we do appreciate your support and the great ales you brew. We look forward to visiting again in 2014.

Enjoying Business & Beer at Strand Brewing Company

Speaking of 2014, our first Business & Beer of the year will be held at The Brewery at Abigaile, a brewpub in Hermosa Beach. The Brewery at Abigaile is currently the only brewpub that we visit in the Business & Beer rotation and I personally feel they set the bar at what a brewpub should be with high quality food to compliment the high quality beers that are brewed onsite. As we will be expanding the number of locations we will visit in 2014, most of the tasting rooms and brewpubs will only be visited once a year; so do not miss out. If you have been to Abigaile before, you know what I am talking about; if you have yet to visit The Brewery at Abigaile, come on down. You can do some business while tasting great food and very good beers; and you can write it off on your taxes as a business expense. You can get all the details for this networking event at

If you have been watching our schedule of upcoming events it is because we have two new breweries with tasting rooms opening soon, King Harbor Brewing Company and Absolution Brewing, and right now I am not entirely convinced who will be ready first. But February and March will be designated to the South Bay’s newest breweries. 2014 will hopefully introduce four new locations for us to visit, so be sure to get on our mailing list or Like Us on Facebook to be kept in the loop.
