Last Thursday, Business & Beer returned to microbrewery, Strand Brewing Company in Torrance. As it was a few days before Christmas, we were not too surprised at the lower then average turnout. We knew that several of our regular attendees were already committed to other events, with both family and other business events taking precedence over our gathering. While we did have fewer people, we did get an opportunity to welcome a new attendee (Jason) and hopefully he will find time to join us again. Jason was referred to us by Dan Thomas and we always appreciate it when our members find enough value in our networking events to tell others; that is what helps us grow.

Business & Beer, every Thursday at 6:00 PM

Tomorrow night, December 27, will be our last Business & Beer for 2012 and our first visit to 1321 Downtown Taproom Bistro, located in downtown Torrance. This will be our first visit to 1321 Taproom as a group, although I know many of you have been there before. 1321 Taproom has a nice selection of beers on tap with several local breweries included on their rotating taps. 1321 Downtown Taproom Bistro is a gastropub, so they usually have a full menu available. As it happens, they are re-doing their kitchen and have closed their kitchen for a couple weeks. Since Business & Beer is coming in, I have been informed that their Chef Jacob will put together a small menu for our event. We hope to see you there.
