Last Thursday Business & Beer had our tenth get-together, this time with a return visit to Strand Brewing Company in Torrance. Strand Brewing is a local brewer in Torrance and specializes in ales, with their Atticus and Black IPA being two of my favorite locally brewed IPA’s. We had a fair turnout of eight, but as several of our regular attendees were out of the state, I can not complain. We had a couple second timers and one new attendee so it looks like we are going to continue to grow.

Tomorrow night, September 20, we will return to The Brewery at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach. If you did not join us here in July, you do not want to miss it tomorrow. The Brewery at Abigaile is a brewpub apart from most brewpubs in that not only do they offer some truly amazing beers, but their food is second to none. All brewpubs should be so good. Since they do serve food, this is a great event to bring your significant other. Between the food, beer and wine selections, you can be sure there will be something there for you. As an extra added bonus, since tomorrow is Day One of LA Beer Week, there will be specials offered with discounts on pints and growler fills. I do not think we could have planned a better way to start off LA Beer Week.
