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

Business & Beer returned to The Dudes’ Brewing Company in Torrance for their February gathering and while the group may have been small, it certainly did not prevent business being done while enjoying some of The Dudes’ latest brews.

As it turned out, it was a first time attendance for everyone there except for Tanya and myself; but those that did attend were able to enjoy the company of The Dudes’ Master Brewer, Alex Rabe as he joined us for a while to talk about his vision for The Dudes’ while making a couple business connections at the same time.

The next Business & Beer will be held Thursday, March 10 from 6:00-8:00 PM at the King Harbor Brewing Company tasting room located at their production brewery on 182nd Street in Redondo Beach. They have expanded their beer selection pretty significantly, so if you have not been there lately come see what has changed. Continue reading

Business & Beer & Pizza

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.

Nice group at May Business & Beer

Great turnout at The Brewery at Abigaile

If you have been following along the last few months, you may have noticed that the reviews of the most recent Business & Beer gatherings have had a tinge of discouragement in them. The reality is that we have been considering changing the format of Business & Beer from a monthly event to bi-monthly; we even considered disbanding. Our gathering last month at The Brewery at Abigaile changed all that as we had one of our largest gatherings in many months.

We had a nice mix of regulars, semi-regulars and first time attendees. Since it was also the anniversary of our sponsor Craft Beer Guy, we had a special raffle with the winner choosing between a couple bottles that were brought in. As we are now entering the summer season, it is expected that our gatherings should see an increase in attendance, at least until Daylight Standard Time returns.

Our next gathering of Business & Beer will be at King Harbor Brewing Company on June 11. King Harbor Brewing is located at 2907 182nd Street in Redondo Beach. Initially it was planned that we would meet at the King Harbor Brewing Company’s waterfront tasting room, but due to circumstances beyond our control we have had to change to the brewery itself as the satellite tasting room may not be ready in time and we would not know until the last minute. We will definitely include the new location sometime in the future. Business & Beer begins at 6:00 PM and runs until 8:00 PM. Continue reading
