Last week, Business & Beer returned to Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach, and this time we brought our Meetup group with us. It was a nice turnout with almost half of the attendees coming directly as a result of our becoming involved with Meetup.com. While the group was a little smaller than anticipated, it gave the Business & Beer regulars an opportunity to interact and network with our new attendees.
This Thursday, April 17, Business & Beer will return to Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance. It has been three months since we have met at Monkish, and a lot has changed over there. As always, Henry has a few new brews available and they have been doing a lot of remodeling; so if you have not visited Monkish Brewing in a while, you are going to be pleasantly surprised. For those of you that have yet to visit Monkish, they are a microbrewery that specializes in Belgian ales. If you are one of those that do not like real hoppy beers, you will probably enjoy Monkish Brewing’s offering. I suggest buying a flight so you can decide which of their beers you prefer.
If business networking is part of your job description and you live or work in the South Bay, you should check out Business & Beer. We are the business networking group that has no rules, no dues and meets after normal work hours, so we encourage you to bring your significant other if so inclined. Every Thursday at 6:00 PM we meet at a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay area. You can sign up to our mailing list, which is on the upper right hand side of the page; or you can follow us on Meetup or Facebook. We hope you will join us; it is a good group with nice people all eager to do business and have a couple beers. All the photos from our event at Sophie’s Place can be found on GotBaddog.com.

Last Thursday we brought Business N Beer back to Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach for another successful meetup. Sophie’s Place is a gastropub in the Riviera Village section of Redondo Beach, CA. The people at Sophie’s always make us feel welcomed and Thursday was no exception. In fact, Bobby (one of the co-owners) even invited a couple people to join our group. There were a couple other first time attendees so there was plenty of networking opportunities for those that wanted to network.
This Thursday, February 7, we will be returning to Tortilla Cantina in downtown Torrance. Tortilla Cantina is a gastropub with a south of the border flair; they serve Mexican food and offer 18 different kinds of tacos. In addition to good food they have a wide selection of craft beers on tap. There is always plenty of free parking and the portion of the restaurant we take over makes it conducive to networking. This will be our third visit there and everyone seems to enjoy themselves, so come on down and check them out.
We are considering opening chapters of Business & Beer in different cities, so if this is something that is of interest to you, please comment below and we will help you get started. There is no reason why this networking group needs to be confined to the South Bay. Please feel free to recommend us to your friends that include networking as a part of their marketing plan and Like Us on Facebook. You can sign up to get on our mailing list so you will always know where we are meeting next. All the photos from our visit to Sophie’s Place can be found on GotBaddog.com.
Last Thursday, Business & Beer returned to Sophie’s Place, a gastropub in Redondo Beach, CA. Ever since the end of Daylight Savings Time, the attendance level at our gatherings had been less than stellar. There were times that Tanya and I would discuss whether or not we were being too ambitious in attempting to have weekly gatherings; after the nice turnout we had Thursday we decided that weekly meetups was a format we would continue with. We know that there are other events our members are involved with that occur on Thursdays, so some weeks are just naturally going to have better turnouts than others. We will just have to take into account things like weather, Christmas shopping and competing events. After all, if we decided to meet bi-weekly we would only risk picking the rotation that would always be a conflict with Business & Beer, so for the time being, we will continue to meet weekly.
Tomorrow night, Thursday December 20, we will be returning to Strand Brewing Company, one of our favorite microbreweries in Torrance. Strand Brewing specializes in creating various ales; including their popular 24th Street Pale Ale and Atticus IPA. If you have not visited Strand Brewing lately, they have two new releases; Bagheera-East India Pale Ale and Black Sand Double IPA. Bagheera-East is their 3rd Anniversary Ale, featuring an exotic spice blend of curry, cumin, cinnamon and cloves accented with toasted coconut and tamarind. I would venture to say that this is Tanya’s favorite from Strand because it is not as hoppy as their typical brews. The Black Sand Double IPA is hoppy but balanced by a malty backbone. It reminds me a little of a half and half using an Atticus and Batch 100. Suffice it to say, Strand Brewing Co will have something you like; especially if you are a hophead.
Naturally, this will be our last gathering before Christmas and I know there are some that will be unavailable, but we always seem to get nice groups when we come to Strand Brewing, so come on down and have a beer and maybe do some business. Remember to sign up for our mailing list and Like us on Facebook to make sure you stay in the loop. I expect 2013 to have several special events for Business & Beer attendees.
