We had our eighth Business & Beer last Thursday at Sophie’s Place in the Riviera Village in Redondo Beach. Sophie’s Place is one of, if not the best gastropub in Redondo Beach. We went there for the first time in July but feel like we have been coming for years because of how welcomed we always feel. They have a nice menu and eight rotating taps that always keeps the beer selection interesting.

We had another nice group of close to 15 people, with one or two couples attending and we had at least one newcomer from Keeping it Local. I am pretty sure we will see him back as supporting local business is what we are all about. As I looked around the room Thursday and through the photos this morning I was pleased to notice that everyone seems to be enjoying the conversation; whether it be about business, beer or just being social.

Next week, Business & Beer will return to Monkish Brewing in Torrance. So far, Monkish Brewing holds the record for the largest Business & Beer event we have had yet.They do not serve food, so that is really saying something. If you want to bring food in, you are welcome to. For the first timers, Monkish is located in an industrial park on Western, just south of Del Amo. You can only enter from the southbound lanes, and it is the second driveway, right after the hamburger joint. Just turn in and head towards the back, you can not miss us. We will be in the back by the brewing equipment.
