The August gathering of Business & Beer was held at El Segundo’s newest production brewery, and LA County’s first distillery and brewery, Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing. While our turnouts in El Segundo are typically lower than those, in say Torrance, we had a very nice sized group with a nice mixture of old and new attendees.

Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing founder Rob Rubens gave us a tour of the brewery with a lot of emphasis placed on the distillery portion since that is something not many have had an opportunity to learn about. They did not have spirits available at our gathering but they will have some by the day of their grand opening, on September 16.

After the tour everyone settled in for some networking and tastings of the Head Over Heels IPA, Valentine’s Massacre, Gunpowder Cream and anti-Villain Saison. Everyone seemed to enjoy the unique style brewed at Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing. You can find all the photos from the event on

We are going to do something a little different for September’s Business & Beer. Instead of it being on the second Thursday, we will be having a special event at Flights Beer Bar in Hawthorne this Thursday, September 1; the 2nd Annual South Bay Tap Takeover. If you went last year, you know what a great time was had. This year we will have 15 of the South Bay’s best breweries under one roof. It is not a ticketed event; you just pay for your own food and beer. Business & Beer free beer certificates will not be honored at this event. You can get all relevant details on Cheers!
