Business & Beer at Monkish Brewing

Business & Beer at Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance

On Thursday October 10, Business & Beer held their monthly get-together at Monkish Brewing Company, a Torrance microbrewery that specializes in Belgian style ales. In addition to the 10+ varieties of ales available, Vella Pizza was there with their mobile brick oven to provide their special pizzas for those in attendance. Speaking of attendance, this group was one of the most diversified we have had since we first started Business & Beer. There was a healthy mix of old timers, occasional visitors and first timers. We even had representatives of two new breweries join us, Pac City Brewery from Pacoima and Absolution Brewing Company of Torrance. We will be including Absolution Brewing in our rotation in 2014; after they get set up and get a tasting room in place.

Business & Beer is an informal business networking group that meets on the second Thursday of every month at a different microbrewery or brewpub in the South Bay area. Unlike other business networking groups we have no dues or mandatory meetings. If networking is an important part of your job description and you enjoy craft beers, you should consider joining us. It is a very nice group of people and they want to meet you and learn more about what your business offers. Our next gathering will be November 14 at El Segundo Brewing Company in El Segundo. They have been doing a lot of brewing there lately and have several beers released since our last visit there including the addition of a lager and a saison to accompany the IPAs, stouts and DIPAs. If you have never come to El Segundo Brewing, you are in for a treat.
