Business & Beer returned to Sophie’s Place last week. Sophie’s Place is a gastropub in the Riviera Village section of Redondo Beach with eight rotating taps and about 50 different craft beers available in bottles and cans. They have a very nice selection of hard to find options available. They also have a great food menu with their date salad and lamb burgers being a couple favorites. We had another small turnout for whatever reason, and since the Phantom Carriage “Muis” Release Celebration was being held over at Naja’s Place, we all headed over there. Unfortunately, there was a major power outage in that part of Redondo Beach so there was no power and no beer was being poured until after power was restored. I waited around and took some photos; they had a nice group there, but had to leave before power was eventually restored.

This week, June 27 we will be returning to the home of Belgian styled ales in Torrance, Monkish Brewing Company. Monkish Brewing is located at 20311 South Western Avenue in Torrance. If this is your first visit to Monkish, it is a microbrewery that currently has about 11 different ales currently on tap. From lagers to quads, if you enjoy Belgian style ales, you will enjoy Monkish Brewing Company. As they are a microbrewery, they do not serve food but you are more than welcome to bring food or order in. Their tasting room is in an industrial park on the west side of Western, just south of Del Amo (the driveway past the hamburger stand). Thursday will mark the end of our weekly meetups and the beginning of visiting brewpubs and microbreweries only. Since we will be meeting once a month only, the second Thursday of the month, this would be a good time to get on our mailing list or Like Us on Facebook to ensure you are kept in the loop for upcoming events.
