Business & Beer at Brewco, Manhattan Beach

These photos are from our Business & Beer gathering at Brewco, a gastropub in Manhattan Beach, CA. Brewco was initially opened about 20 years ago as Manhattan Beach Brewing Company. From what I can tell, they stopped brewing beer on location sometime in 2009 at which point it re-opened as Brewco. Brewco offers about 50 beers on tap, with most of them being craft beers from around the world. They also offer several bottled craft beers and frequently have hard to find brews available.

This was the first time that we brought Business & Beer to this location and it was a great success. We had about 15 people show up, with many of them being first time attendees. I would venture to say that even if this was not our largest group, it may have had the most productive networking of any of our events to date. I know that one of our first-timers sells stained glass, and we had someone that was in the process of trying to find someone that does stained glass. Talk about a random hookup; this is exactly what Business & Beer is all about. Supporting local businesses and enjoying craft beer while generating business for our attendees. Continue reading

Ballast Point Tap Takeover at Brewco, Manhattan Beach

These photos were taken last night, December 3, 2012 at the Ballast Point Tap Takeover which was held at Brewco, Manhattan Beach. Ballast Point Brewing is a micro brewery located in San Diego, CA. Brewco is a gastropub that offers about 25 different bottled beers along with 30 beers on tap. Last night, for the tap takeover, Ballast Point provided eight of their beers on tap. The beers they brought were Longfin Lager, Calico Amber, Sculpin IPA, Schooner APA, Barrel Aged Piper Down Ale, Thai Chili Wahoo Wheat, 2011 Aged Victory at Sea and Sextant Stout (nitro). Anyone that purchased a pint of Ballast Point received a free glass to take home. We started off by getting two flights, so we could have a sample of each of the eight featured brews.

The watermark was given to Business & Beer; out new business networking group in the South Bay for small business owners that support local business and local brewers. If you enjoy craft beers and live or work in the South Bay area you are welcome to join us. No rules, no dues; just fun people doing business and enjoying great beers. Continue reading

50 shades of South Bay gray; a day at the beach

Every once in a while I need to just take a day off, away from the house for a while, and yesterday was that day. I had been seeing Facebook status updates mentioning big surf was coming and I figured that with the rain clouds that it would make for some nice photographs. Since Tanya has been feeling a lot better for the last few weeks, she has been able to use her Canon Rebel again; so she was excited to join me. Without bothering to look at the surf report, we headed over to the beach.

We started off at the breakwater at King Harbor in Redondo Beach. While the waves crashing over the breakwater I was hoping to capture did not exist, there were quite a few surfers out there enjoying the swells. We then ventured over to the Hermosa Beach Pier to see if there might be some more dramatic scenery or surfers by the pier. There wasn’t. After several minutes it started to rain a little, so we used the opportunity to move along to the Manhattan Beach Pier. I knew that even if there was nothing else happening, we could go to the Roundhouse Aquarium.

We happened to park right around the corner from Brewco and since we had a nice time the first time we were there we stopped in out of the rain for a bit. After meeting the GM and setting a date for a Business & Beer gathering we headed down to the pier and a visit to the Roundhouse Aquarium. It is small but pretty cool. If you are in the neighborhood stop in and bring the kids. Continue reading
