Business & Beer – 2nd Thursday of Every Month

On April 14, the Business & Beer networking group met at production brewery Absolution Brewing Company’s tasting room for our monthly gathering. This may be the first time that we had more people show up than photos taken; it was a nice group of craft beer fans and professionals with Felicia driving in from the Palm Springs area! Absolution was offering a BOGO special to Business & Beer attendees, which made it just that much more fun. Thanks to everyone that came out.

Networking at Business & Beer

Our next Business & Beer will be held Thursday May 12 at Torrance’s newest craft brewery, Scholb Premium Ales. As Scholb did not have their ribbon cutting until the day after last month’s gathering at Absolution, this was the soonest we could fit them in. If you have not had a chance to visit Scholb yet, this is your chance; and I think you will love them. They already have close to 10 beers on tap, so I am sure they will have something you will enjoy; I already have a couple favorites.

Scholb Premium Ales is located at 2964 Columbia Street in Torrance. It is just a few hundred feet west of Absolution Brewing, in the same industrial complex. If you pull into the first driveway east of Maple, just go straight ahead. We hope you will join us. Cheers!

Business & Beer – For good networking with good beer

The Business & Beer networking group returned to King Harbor Brewing Company for their March 2016 gathering, and all things considered we had a very nice group as people came and went throughout our time at the production brewery’s tasting room. The group consisted of a well-rounded mix of old-timers, the fairly new and first timers. In addition to the ample networking opportunities we had plenty of King Harbor’s brews to keep our thirsts quenched. I noticed that Alpine Village was in the group and was handing out passes to the opening night of their Oktoberfest; so you never know what might happen when you show up to a Business & Beer gathering. If networking is important to your business, Business & Beer should be on your radar; especially if you enjoy craft beer.

Our next Business & Beer will be Thursday, April 14 at Absolution Brewing Company in Torrance from 6:00-8:00 PM. If you have not been to Absolution in the past four months, you will not recognize it as they have an entirely new and massive brewhouse in place of their original equipment. They have been turning out some very tasty brews with it, so gather up some business cards and join us for some networking and beer. Absolution Brewing Company is located at 2878 Columbia Street in Torrance. Continue reading

Absolution welcomes Business & Beer

Absolution Brewing welcomes Business & Beer

The Business & Beer networking group returned to Absolution Brewing Company for their July 2015 gathering. Following two successive months of outstanding attendance, the attendance this time would be better described as intimate. Since it was held in mid-July one might presume that a certain number go off on vacation with their families, so we do not despair too much. While it is always nice when we have large turnouts, the smaller ones are nice also as it gives the attendees more opportunity to visit with each other. I believe Phil will agree that it definitely increases your odds of winning the drawing for a free beer.

Our next Business & Beer will be held at Monkish Brewing Company in Torrance on August 13 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. For those interested in food, Vella Pizza will be there creating fresh brick-oven baked pizzas. If you grow vegetables and want to customize your pizza, bring some goodies along and they will use them on your pizza. There are some fun brews coming from Monkish lately, including their collaboration with El Segundo Brewing Company, Beer.HOPS.Love, a hoppy Belgian Tripel. Naturally, they have lots of their Belgian-ish brews which all seem to pair well with pizza. The hopheads among you will enjoy whichever “Saint” Belgian-style pale ale is available (guessing Saint Amarillo or Saint Citra) as well as the Beer.HOPS.Love. For sure you will have a good time networking with others that feel the same way about craft beer as you. Continue reading

Ready for Business, Beer, Pizza & networking at King Harbor Brewing

The June 2015 gathering of Business & Beer was held June 11 at the King Harbor Brewing Company tasting room and if the last the review of last month’s gathering sounded upbeat, this one should be equally so.

We had initially scheduled the networking event to be held at King Harbor’s new Waterfront Tasting Room but last minute delays with the California ABC put the opening date in question, so an executive decision was made to reschedule the gathering for the original tasting room. In retrospect, as much as it would have been pretty cool to introduce the Business & Beer group to the new location, I am not entirely sure we all would have fit if everyone that RSVP’d actually showed up. As it was, we had about 20 people show up which was our largest group in quite a while. It was a definite improvement over the showings earlier in the year when we might have three people join us.
