Last week Business & Beer returned to the home of the Blue House Ales, El Segundo Brewing Company (ESBC)in El Segundo. As one might guess, El Segundo Brewing is a microbrewery that specializes in ales with their Wheat and Double IPA’s being my favorites. They also have their Hyperion Stout for those not into hops. For our event they brought out a vanilla bean porter that was good enough that we brought some home with us. It was week 16 of Business & Beer and we had a nice little group with us. As ESBC is as far north as we go, I don’t expect groups of 15-20 at this point of our existence. We had a couple more than we did the first time we came, and at least one was a first timer. The brewing room is not that big, so our group shared the tasting room. It gave others the opportunity to inquire about the Business & Beer concept.

Free beer is the best beer

This Thursday, November 1, Business & Beer will return to Strand Brewing Company in Torrance. This will be our third visit to Strand Brewing and we always seems to have a nice turnout. I suspect that we have a lot of hopheads in the group, plus being in Torrance it is close to most of us. Strand Brewing Company is a microbrewery that specializes in handcrafted ales. Their ales come in every variety from amber to black with a couple nice IPA’s and stout thrown in for good measure. As it is a microbrewery they do not sell food, but you are welcome to bring some or order in. They have plenty of street parking that is free and we are encouraged to use it.
