BusinessNBeer set up

Ready for some Business & Beer

On November 14, 2013 the Business & Beer networking group returned to El Segundo Brewing Company for our monthly gathering. Since we have been meeting for 16 months now, we know that when Daylight Savings Time ends, people seem to stay home a little more than when the sun is out. We also have learned that there are locations that will have larger turnouts than others. Since El Segundo Brewing is the craft brewery that is the northernmost location we visit, we expect that the turnouts will be lower than what we might experience in Torrance. It seems that changing to a monthly format has definitely helped with our attendance levels since we had more than double the turnout we had the last time we visited there in June. I have said it before, and will say it again; the smaller gatherings are in some ways better than the big ones as everyone gets an opportunity to talk to anyone they want. It is through relationship building that business relationships are formed. We appreciate El Segundo Brewing for hosting the event and thank Brett and Travis for keeping our glasses filled.

Our next Business & Beer will be held December 12, 2013 at Strand Brewing Company in Torrance. As I mentioned above, after 16 months we have a pretty good idea which locations are going to have the best turnouts and there is no doubt that Strand Brewing Company is always one of our top draws as far as attendance is concerned. Strand Brewing is located at 23520 Telo Avenue in Torrance. As it is a microbrewery they do not serve food but you are welcome to bring food with you. We sometimes have pizza available but it is not guaranteed, so if you are really hungry you might want to stop and grab a bite before coming. Be sure to bring business cards for our drawing and for giving out; I am sure we will have a nice turnout.

Speaking of Strand Brewing Company, they will be celebrating their fourth year of brewing excellence this coming Saturday, December 7. They will be open from noon until 8:00 PM and will have brews you have yet to try as well as several casks that will be served throughout the day. The Taco Man food truck will also be there for those wishing to grab a snack with their craft beer. As this will be a well-attended event, attendees are requested to park in the street. I hope you can make it to support Torrance’s oldest production brewery and one of Business & Beer’s earliest supporters.
