Business & Beer return visit to The Rockefeller

These photos are from our Business & Beer gathering last Thursday at The Rockefeller Gastropub in Hermosa Beach, CA. The Rockefeller has been one of our favorite destinations since we discovered them back in May. They offer a wide selection of craft beers on tap and have a food menu that seems to change with the seasons. You can always find something interesting on it. In addition, they constantly have wine and beer tastings and various food specials going on what seems daily. You should check them out if you haven’t, it is always a pleasant experience.

Our group was smaller than usual, but that did not stop anyone from having a good time. If you are a small business owner in the South Bay and enjoy American craft beers as well as networking with others, you should check out Business & Beer, the different kind of networking group. No rules, no dues, no mandatory meetings; just like-minded individuals that enjoy good beer. You really have nothing to lose and we would love to meet you. Continue reading

Cheesy Christmas Sweaters

When I think about it, the concept of cheesy Christmas sweaters always seemed to be set against the backdrop of a 60’s or 70’s sitcom; or perhaps a Family Circle cartoon in the Sunday funnies, I did not really give any thought to the fact that this might be a real thing. Well, I have had my eyes opened. Saturday, Tanya and I joined some friends at their 3rd Annual Cheesy Christmas Sweater Party. Since I do not think I have really noticed a cheesy sweater before, I was not entirely sure what to expect in the way of cheesy Christmas sweaters. I will not have that problem anymore, the guests that attended and participated by wearing cheesy Christmas sweaters have burnt “cheesy” into my memory for life.

In addition to the cheesy sweaters there was fun people, good food and really good beer. Our host mixed up a batch of some amazing eggnog, so all of our bases were covered for a very fun Christmas party. Thank you to our hosts and congrats to the winner of the cheesiest Christmas sweater contest. Merry Christmas. Continue reading

Photos from the 2012 Strand Brewers Club Holiday Party

These photos were taken at the annual Strand Brewers Club holiday party which was held Saturday evening up in Rolling Hills. The Strand Brewers Club is a local group of home brewers dedicated to the art and science of homebrewing and beer education. I was somewhat familiar with the group as I have seen them at a couple of the beer festivals I attended this year and I have met some of their members through Business & Beer. Once we arrived at the party I recognized a few faces from visits to some of my favorite microbreweries.

The Strand Brewers Club put their 11 tap serving bar to use with 11 different brews provided by club members as well as a homebrewed soda which was pretty tasty. There were also bottled versions of home brews provided and they had a competition to determine with home brew would be submitted by the club to the January American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Club only Competition. Everyone that provided entries to the competition were eager to have everyone sample their brews, and most seemed willing to do just that. They also awarded their “Most Prolific Brewer” with a certificate and a credit at a local bottle shop. It was a fun time with a nice group of people. Thanks to those that sent me an invitation, thanks to everyone that provided their home brews and thanks to our hosts for opening their home to us. Happy holidays. Continue reading
