Business & Beer returned to the Tortilla Cantina in downtown Torrance last Thursday for another business networking event. This was our fourth appearance at Tortilla Cantina, a taco bistro/gastropub that serves up to 40 different beers on tap and touts 18 varieties of tacos. We did not have a very large group with us, but did have a few people come up to find out what we are all about. Hopefully, some of them will find our group interesting enough to join us again. We are still using Meetup until our membership expires, but no one showed up as a result of our efforts with them. If you know someone that wants to take that group over, have them contact us.

This Thursday, May 9, we will be returning to one of my favorite places, The Brewery at Abigaile, in Hermosa Beach. The Brewery at Abigaile is currently the only brewpub in the South Bay that we include in our weekly rotation of Business & Beer venues. To refresh your memory, a brewpub brews their beer on location and serves upscale food. The Brewery at Abigaile does it in spades and sets the bar for brewpubs in my opinion. This week will be extra special in that Abigaile is doing a cross-over event with Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in which they will be pairing four of their beers with Chef Tin’s creations. This will be a fun evening of business, beer and good food. They open at 5:00, so if you want to come early, we will likely be there when they open.

It is as easy as dropping in your business card!

The Business & Beer networking group is quickly approaching one year of weekly gatherings. Since we started in July 2012, we have had a Business & Beer meeting every Thursday except for Thanksgiving and the first Thursday of April. It has been a learning experience and we appreciate everyone that has come out, whether you are a regular attendee or if you only joined us for one or two meetups. We are going to start doing things a little differently beginning in July, so come on out and find out what we have on tap (no pun intended).
