Beachwood BBQ & Brewing

First things first, happy American Craft Beer Week. In case you did not know and want to start counting, this is the 8th Annual American Craft Beer Week and it runs from May 13-19th.

Last week, Business & Beer returned to The Brewery at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach. The Brewery at Abigaile is the only brewpub in the Business & Beer rotation and it happens to be a personal favorite of mine, so I always look forward to these gatherings. As luck would have it another of my favorite local breweries, Beachwood Brewing & BBQ from Long Beach, was doing a food pairing with Abigaile; so we were fortunate enough to have two great breweries under one roof. We are lucky to have two brewers of this level so close in proximity and willing to work together.

Our turnout had fewer than expected, however we did have two new people join us that came as a result of our association with Meetup. Unfortunately, there is no way that we can utilize Meetup to get more members, so we have to rely on people finding us. As a result, we are going to let it do whatever abandoned Meetup groups do (we cannot delete it); if we get an influx of new members we might revive it.

Enjoying a little Business & Beer

This week, Business & Beer will be returning to Alpine Inn at the Alpine Village in Torrance. While the Alpine Inn is a German gastropub, they have some very nice and hard to find American craft beers in their cellar, so you never know what to expect. They have good German dinners as well as happy hour snacks, so come on down and meet us at 6:00 PM. We usually have a pretty large group there, so bring lots of business cards.
