Week three of Business N Beer found us at our first micro brewery, Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance. Monkish Brewing specializes in Belgian style ales and beers, and the owner and brewer, Henry Nguyen does a great job of it. They have only been open for a few months but I can see that they are becoming quite popular as I see more and more people in their tasting room and I see several gastropubs carrying their products. It is nice to see good things happen to good people.
This was our largest gathering yet, with 17 or 18 people showing up. Unlike the second gathering at Abigaile which had no returnees from our first gathering, Thursday’s meet-up included several people that had come to the Select Beer gathering, several more that had come to our meeting at The Brewery at Abigaile with close to half of the attendees being first timers. It seems to me that Business N Beer is doing exactly as we hoped; bringing people together to do business while enjoying an American craft beer. And it is growing weekly.
Our next Business N Beer meet-up will be Thursday, August 2 at 6:00 PM; and will be held at Strand Brewing Company, also in Torrance. This is another micro brewery, which means they do not serve food. We will likely bring in some snacks, but you can bring food or have it delivered. There is plenty of street parking and there are no meters! We hope to see you there. You can see all the photos from our night at Monkish Brewing on GotBaddog.com
