Business & Beer made its first visit to 1321 Downtown Taproom Bistro, a gastropub in Downtown Torrance last Thursday and we had a great turnout. There was a little concern since the event was held two days after Christmas and it was at a new location; but it seemed that people that had not attended in a while missed the camaraderie and good beer as we had one of the better turnouts in the last few weeks. We have been familiar with for quite a while and have always appreciated their 16 taps of craft beers and have been trying to include them in the Business & Beer rotation. Eventually, we were able to get everyone on the same page and make it happen. Although their kitchen is in the process of changing staff and the menu, Chef Jacob came up with a few appetizers that were made available to our group.

Tomorrow night, January 3, 2013 we will be returning to the Alpine Inn at Alpine Village in Torrance. This will be our third visit to Alpine Inn, and have always had a good time. Alpine Inn is known more for their German and Czech beers, but their General Manager is a home brewer and has made sure that the Alpine Inn has a wide selection of American craft beers available as well. To top it off, their food is really good too. Be sure to come on down, you will not regret it.
