Bottle Share at Sophie’s Place

These photos are from a Bottle Share we attended yesterday at Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach. The event was put on by Adam’s Fine Wine and Liquor which is also located in Redondo Beach. I became aware of the event as I happened to meet one of the owners of Sophie’s Place a couple weeks ago, one thing lead to another and we linked up via Facebook. When I first heard about the event it sounded interesting enough, but I had never attended a bottle share before so I was not sure what to expect. As the event date drew closer a few beer names started appearing on the list. When I saw that someone was bringing some Three Floyds beer, I knew I had to attend.

So, what is a bottle share? Well, a bottle share is when a bunch of people get together, each bringing a nice bottle or two of their favorite beers, then everyone shares what they brought so people can try something new. I am not sure how many people came, but it was probably 20 or 30. Between all of us, this is the list of beers that were brought.

Business N Beer at Monkish Brewing Company, Torrance

These photos are from our third Business N Beer gathering that we had last night at Monkish Brewing Company, in Torrance. We had a very nice group of people that showed up and it was our biggest group to date with about 17 or 18 attendees. The interesting thing, for me anyway, was that the group consisted of a few people from our first gathering at Select Beer Store; there were a few from our gathering last week at Abigaile and there were many people that were attending for the first time. As I looked around at our group it was hard to believe that most of the people did not know each other prior to their coming to Business N Beer. It was pretty cool to watch and listen as there was business being done.

It seemed that most of the attendees had never been to Monkish Brewing before, so I was quite happy to introduce them to the wonderful Belgian style ales and beer that Henry produces and it seemed most of the newcomers opted for taster flights, which is a great idea. Especially when trying a beer for the first time. With eight different offerings, Henry probably has something you will like. I like them all.

So, next week, August 2, we will be at Strand Brewing Company, also in Torrance. Strand Brewing is another micro brewery, which means they do not serve food. You can bring outside food in or have it delivered. I hope to see you there, and if you “Like” our Facebook page or sign up for our email list on BusinessNBeer.com you can keep in the loop for our upcoming events. If you enjoy craft beer and networking with other business owners, you are going to really enjoy our gatherings. I promise. Continue reading

Tech Pros, Social Media Shoot Out

Today I participated on a panel discussion about social media and how to utilize it to help promote your business. This event was put on by the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce, Technology Professionals, also known as the TACC-Tech Pros. Tech Pros is a free benefit of being a member of the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce and they meet on the 4th Wednesday of every month, except for November and December as there are a couple of big holidays that fall around those dates (Thanksgiving and Christmas).

The stated purpose of TACC-Tech Pros is to help bring together technology related companies and individuals. I agreed to be on the panel as I was hoping to reach more small businesses that are coming to the realization that the Yellow Pages and ads in throw away newspapers is not going to cut it anymore. Social media is a very important part of any businesses Internet presence and it should be a part of your SEO strategy. I was quite pleased at the standing room only turn out, and it was obvious that the attendees understand that they need a social media plan, even if they are not quite sure where to start. Hopefully, they learned a little today.
