Business & Beer makes a return visit to Alpine Inn, Torrance

These photos are from our Business & Beer meet-up at the Alpine Inn at Alpine Village in Torrance. It was our 15th gathering and we had 15 attendees; coincidence? Probably. I have to say I was pretty surprised at the number of people that came out. The last time we did Business & Beer at Alpine Inn we only had eight people come out. That was pretty much the reason that we set Alpine Village as the furthest south we would venture with our group. If we continue to grow the way we are, I may have to consider expanding our reach a little.

Next week, October 25, Business & Beer will be headed to El Segundo Brewing Company (ESBC), in El Segundo, CA. El Segundo Brewing is a micro brewery that creates some of the finest hand-crafted ales in the South Bay. Usually the micro breweries we visit do not provide food, however, since it is football season they will have tacos available. I have been informed that they will try to have something special to tap for that evening. In addition, because our group is growing, we will likely meet inside the brewhouse. It should be a great time.

If you are a business owner in the South Bay and/or networking is an important part of your business model, you should consider joining us. To stay current with our upcoming events you can get on our mailing list and Like Us on Facebook. We support local brewers and local business so come on down. The worst that can happen is you will have a good beer with some good people. Hope to see you soon. Continue reading

Business N Beer at Alpine Inn, Torrance

Last night Business N Beer met at Alpine Inn located at the world famous, Alpine Village in Torrance, CA. Alpine Village is home to Southern California’s largest and oldest Oktoberfest. This year will be their 45th Annual, and if you have never been, you should check it out sometime. I got reintroduced to the Alpine Village back in March when we went to Alpine Inn for a Chamber of Commerce luncheon. The food reminded me a lot of some of my childhood meals but what really caught my attention was their beer board when we were walking out. I knew I had to return to check the bar out more closely. After a couple subsequent visits, it was decided that we should add them to the Business N Beer rotation. It was a great idea.

We had close to 15 people show up, which was pretty good considering the distance. I am sure the attendance level was higher due in part to the fact that Alpine Inn serves food and one of our regular attendees, Todd, works there. I could not help but notice that there seemed to be more experimenting with the various brews available which included several from Europe. It was fun comparing American craft beers to the European versions. As it turns out, Alpine Inn had three live bands playing last night, so we had musical entertainment, even if it did minimize the conversations slightly.

Next week we will be meeting at Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach’s Riviera Village. Sophie’s is definitely a gastropub, with very good food. They have eight rotating taps and offer many bottled craft beers as well as wine and a full bar. The parking meters stop at 6:00 PM in the Riviera Village and there is a large parking lot about one block east of the location. Be sure to check out our Facebook page for more details and sign up to be on our mailing list so you can keep up. We are currently booked up through September; so keep your Thursdays free.

A touch of Germany at the Alpine Inn in Torrance

This review is of the Alpine Inn at Alpine Village in Torrance, CA. A couple of weeks ago, Tanya and I had lunch at the Alpine Inn during a networking event with the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce. We were impressed enough with the lunch that we figured we would have to make a return visit. As we were exiting I noticed a large chalkboard with numerous micro-brewery beers on tap listed. An Oatmeal Stout caught my eye, and I knew we would return. As it turns out, it was sooner than expected as we returned this past Sunday. I think the fact that it was a Sunday meant that there was a large dance floor and music was provided for dancing. It may have been a special event, I do not know. I tried to find some information on their website, but was unsuccessful. If dancing is your thing, you might try calling for information. If you like German food, then I would recommend the Alpine Inn with no qualms.

When we came for lunch, there was a special menu for our group. We got salads but had no choice on dressing, so got the vinaigrette. I had ranch on my subsequent visit. I should have stuck with the house suggestion of vinaigrette as it was much better. Tanya got the Whiskey BBQ Sausage Sandwich which she thought was great. I ordered the Pork Milanese, mainly for the sauteed spinach. The spinach was great and the pork was good. I am not really a pork guy, but wanted to order something different than Tanya for the comparisons. The strudel was delicious. Continue reading
