Business N Beer comes to El Segundo Brewing Company

Last night, we brought Business N Beer to El Segundo Brewing Company. El Segundo Brewing Company, or ESBC, specializes in ales and for my money, brews one of the finest IPA’s in the South Bay with their White Dog IPA. As the photos show, this was the smallest turnout we have had since we started last month; however since ESBC is also the furthest away from Torrance and most of our members seem to be from the Torrance area I am not too surprised. On the upside, even though it was our smallest group, we still had a first timer and I had the opportunity to promote Business N Beer to a couple ESBC customers prior to the start of our event. Hopefully, some will join us at future events.

Next week, we will bring Business N Beer to the Alpine Inn, located at Alpine Village in Torrance. The Alpine Inn has a very nice selection of American craft beers, some of which is local, and they carry several European drafts as well. Alpine Inn is a German restaurant, so if you want to make it date night go ahead and bring your significant other. That is one of the advantages of Business N Beer, dates are welcome. Nothing says you can’t do business and have a good time doing it.

Be sure to sign up for the Business N Beer mailing list and follow us on Facebook. I look forward to seeing more of you next week. Continue reading

Business N Beer at The Rockefeller, Hermosa Beach

These photos are from our latest Business N Beer gathering; which was held last night at The Rockefeller in Hermosa Beach. The Rockefeller, for those unfamiliar, is a fine gastropub located on Pier Avenue. The term gastropub seems to be an up and coming catch-phrase and is frequently tossed around a little too liberally. Serving a few beers on tap with half of them being mainstream domestic brews like Budweiser or Coors and offering burgers and fries for food, does not a gastropub make. A gastropub serves upscale foods and craft beers. There are a few real gastropubs in the South Bay and for my money The Rockefeller sets the bar on what I look for. They have 24 or 25 craft beers from around the world with rotating kegs. That means the choices change frequently; there will usually be a few staples then they rotate the guest beers. On top of that, they serve flights and let you build your own. If you are not sure what to try, let your server put one together for you. It is the best way to try new beer anyway. The food is outstanding, from their White Bean Hummus, to their Chicken & Waffles to their Bread Pudding. It is always a good time.

We had another nice turnout, between 15 and 18 throughout the evening. My prior observations about how each gathering has had a few people from each of the prior meets and a few new people continues. The group is growing and as such, the different fields represented grows as well. I took the opportunity to talk one on one with a couple people to get their input as far as the value found thus far, remembering that no one has been to more than four of these events. Everyone has found something a little different; from actually making a potential business deal to just being glad to have the opportunity to get the exposure that Business N Beer brings them. The overwhelming consensus was that no matter what, they were enjoying some time with new friends as well as some old friends and they were really enjoying the locations we have introduced them to.

Bobber Bike Night at Bartels’ Harley-Davidson

These photos were taken at Bartels’ Harley-Davidson last night at their Bike Night. Since many riders are off at Sturgis, Bartels’ had their own mini-Sturgis in their parking lot; which if you closed your eyes and imagined, it was pretty close. There was live music, pretty girls, food, too many cars and it was hot (well, in the beginning; it was a nice ride home. The theme of the evening was to show off your bobber. While my 2006 Night Train is not exactly a bobber in the truest sense of the word, I entered into the contest anyway. I did not place.

I have been doing business with Bartels’ H-D since 1986 when they were tucked in a corner under the Santa Monica Freeway. Today they have a huge facility in Marina del Rey and still provide the kind of service that they have long been known for. If you are looking for a good deal on a nice bike, I have to suggest the dealer of the stars, Bartels’ H-D. Tell them I sent you. Continue reading
