Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing

The August gathering of Business & Beer was held at El Segundo’s newest production brewery, and LA County’s first distillery and brewery, Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing. While our turnouts in El Segundo are typically lower than those, in say Torrance, we had a very nice sized group with a nice mixture of old and new attendees.

Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing founder Rob Rubens gave us a tour of the brewery with a lot of emphasis placed on the distillery portion since that is something not many have had an opportunity to learn about. They did not have spirits available at our gathering but they will have some by the day of their grand opening, on September 16.

After the tour everyone settled in for some networking and tastings of the Head Over Heels IPA, Valentine’s Massacre, Gunpowder Cream and anti-Villain Saison. Everyone seemed to enjoy the unique style brewed at Rob Rubens Distilling & Brewing. You can find all the photos from the event on Continue reading

Everyone is a winner at Business & Beer

The Business & Beer networking group met at Smog City Brewing Company for their July gathering, which also marked the 4th anniversary since the first gathering of Business & Beer which was held at Select Beer Store in July of 2012.

We had a very nice turnout, with a total of seven of the attendees being present at the first event as well. To mark the occasion, co-founder Tanya prepared homemade calzones which went perfectly with Smog City’s beer; Phil and Debbie brought in a couple pizzas which ensured there was plenty to eat for everyone. All attendees won the free beer raffle, so everyone was a winner. Thank you to everyone that came out. Continue reading
