Last Thursday, November 1, Business & Beer made our third visit to Strand Brewing Company in Torrance. Sometimes I wonder if I am just repeating the same thing every week when I review our last get together; it is always new people, return visitors, we are growing, yada yada. Well, this week I am going to say that last week we had a fantastic gathering. Not only did we have a couple of new people and several returnees that had not been able to attend recently, but we had one of our largest groups ever. We had about 20 people show up, and considering that Strand Brewing Co does not serve food, that is really saying something. In fact, our group was so large that owners of other locations have commented to me that they heard about how much Business & Beer is growing. It is really good to see and I thank everyone that has come out and made Business & Beer the success it is becoming; we do appreciate it.

Nice group for Business & Beer at Strand Brewing Co.

Next Thursday, November 8 we will be returning to Monkish Brewing, also in Torrance. Monkish Brewing is a microbrewery that specializes in Belgian style ales. I have had several people tell me that they have not tried Monkish yet, but have always wanted to, so I am expecting a pretty good group. I know we have some hop heads in the group that are not real fans of Belgian style ales, but I am here to tell you that brewmaster Henry has come up with a new dry-hopped Belgian amber, made with Sterling hops called False Prophet. Regular attendees know I am a major hop head and when I first raised my glass of False Prophet to my lips the aroma immediately put a smile to my face. I know I will never find an IPA at Monkish Brewing, but the False Prophet is right up there. Come on down Thursday and try it for yourself, I am sure you will not be disappointed.
