The Dudes’ Brewing Company

On April 9, the Business & Beer networking group returned to The Dudes’ Brewing Company’s tasting room in Torrance. This was our second visit to The Dudes’ since we went there for their soft open back in August. Unlike our first visit, when we pretty much filled the place, we had a pretty small turnout at our April gathering. In fact, the turnout was so poor that we considered changing the format of Business & Beer from a monthly event to a “once-in-a-while” event. Fortunately, the gathering ended up having a few more attendees as a few people joined us before we had packed up. Those that did attend were treated to free beer, courtesy of The Dudes’ Brewing Company. When the date was scheduled I was unaware that Thursday was trivia night at The Dudes’ so when it was announced Business & Beer formed an impromptu team to play. Our team did okay, but none of us were really into it for the long run. When we return there I will find out ahead of time so those of you that want to play will have enough notice.

After a little discussion, it has been decided to continue with the monthly format for Business & Beer and it appears that our next gathering, at The Brewery at Abigaile on May 14, will be very well attended. We have already been notified by several people that they will definitely be in attendance so if you have been waiting for the right time to attend, this just might be the networking event you were looking for. The Brewery at Abigaile is a brewpub so there will be plenty of food options to go along with their fine selection of brews. They have a special Research & Development Menu during Happy Hour, so come a little early if you want to take advantage of that. The Brewery at Abigaile is located at 1301 Manhattan Avenue in Hermosa Beach; that is on the northwest corner of Pier and Manhattan Avenues. Business & Beer officially runs from 6:00-8:00 PM but we should be there by 5:30. We will be seated at the community tables that are opposite the bar when you first come in.

If you have not come to Business & Beer in a while you should consider stopping by and meeting the new faces. Remember, this is an open event; you do not need a special invitation to bring co-workers, friends or significant others. We look forward to seeing you.
