Business & Beer returns to 1321 Downtown Taproom Bistro

Last night, Business & Beer returned to the 1321 Downtown Taproom Bistro for the second time; and Meetup joined us for the third consecutive week. It seems that Meetup is helping our networking group grow a little at a time, with two or three new attendees as a direct result of Meetup and a couple of them are becoming regular attendees. With the combination of Facebook, Meetup and word of mouth, BusinessNBeer is growing and business connections are being made. It is fun to sit back and watch as our attendees introduce themselves to each other and discover that there are business opportunities available along with the good beer and food.

The last time we brought Business & Beer to the 1321 Taproom was in December and the Taproom was just redoing their kitchen and food menu. It seems that they have made a successful transition as everyone seemed to enjoy a wide variety of foods ranging from Brussels sprouts and crab cakes to pork ribs and sliders.

If you live or work in the South Bay area and enjoy networking with others over a tasty craft beer, you will enjoy Business & Beer. We meet every Thursday at a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay. We have no dues, no restrictions and no mandatory meetings. Come when it is convenient and feel free to bring a friend or two; you will have a good time, we have a very nice group. You can follow us on Facebook or Meetup to be kept in the loop, or sign up to the mailing list found on the front page of BusinessNBeer.com Continue reading

Business & Beer joins Meetup at The Rockefeller

The photos are from our Business & Beer networking group’s gathering at the Hermosa Beach gastropub, The Rockefeller. As I mentioned last week, we have decided to give Meetup.com a chance to see if we could build on the number of people that attend our networking events. Last week, with short notice, we had two new attendees that were a direct result of our joining meetup. Last night there were at least three Meetup attendees, however, we had more new people that regulars last night and I am not entirely sure if some of the others were there because of Meetup or because friends had told them about BusinessNBeer. Either way, we had a very nice turnout and it was probably enough that we will extend our trial of using Meetup to gain new members to our gatherings.

If you live or work in the South Bay area, enjoy networking and are a fan of American craft beer, you might want to consider coming to a networking event. Our attendees are friendly, social and are eager to meet you and learn about your business. The range of businesses in our group includes everything from air conditioning to web development. You can find the schedule on the front page of BusinessNBeer.com. Continue reading

Business & Beer Joins Meetup at Alpine Inn

These photos are from our Business & Beer gathering at Alpine Inn, located at the Alpine Village in Torrance. Over the weekend we decided that we would try out the Meetup business networking platform to see if we could generate some additional interest from people that do not use Facebook. What we did not realize is that they have an approval process, so it took a few days before we were actually added to the system. In two days we got 10 new members, but as far as attendance is concerned, we had two people that joined us as a result of Meetup, even though they did not join the Meetup group. We will stick it out for a month and see how it progresses. I’d like to see us grow to about 50 regular attendees by the end of the experiment.

If you are into craft beer, enjoy networking with others and live or work in the South Bay area, you should probably check out Business & Beer. We meet every Thursday at a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub at 6:00 PM. There are no restrictions, dues, mandatory meetings; just show up when you can. You can find the schedule on the front page of BusinessNBeer.com. You can also sign up to the mailing list, or you can Like Us on Facebook to stay current. And for the time being, we will be putting our schedule on Meetup.com as well. Continue reading
