The Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach will host the 1st Annual Froth Awards, The Easy Reader Beer Experience and Gastropub Challenge, on March 17, 2013 and this is going to be a blast. The Froth Awards will feature the who’s who of the South Bay’s microbreweries, brewpubs and gastropubs who will put together five food and craft beer pairings. If you are a regular reader of GotBaddog.com, the names of the participants should be very familiar to you. The microbreweries participating include, Strand Brewing Company, Monkish Brewing and Smog City from Torrance and El Segundo Brewing Company from El Segundo. The gastropubs include Hot’s Kitchen and The Rockefeller from Hermosa Beach, Hudson House from Redondo Beach and Simmzy’s from Manhattan Beach. The Brewery at Abigaile from Hermosa Beach is the lone brewpub.

The Brewery at Abigaile hosts another Business N Beer

Last night we had another Business & Beer, this time returning to my favorite brewpub, The Brewery at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach. This was our first meetup in two weeks, and the first since Lent started, so I am not sure how much this combination contributed to our smaller than normal turnout. That is okay, those of us that came out had a good time and it gave us time to get to know each other more.

If you live or work in the South Bay area and enjoy networking while enjoying a local craft beer, you should look into Business & Beer the networking group that has no dues, no mandatory meetings and no hurried breakfasts or lunches. We meet every Thursday at a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub at 6:00 PM. You can find the schedule on the front page of BusinessNBeer.com and you can Like Us on Facebook to ensure you are kept in the loop. Continue reading

Photos from the Abigaile One Year Anniversary Party

These photos are from the Abigaile 1st Anniversary & Southbay Magazine Issue Release party which was held last night at Abigaile in Hermosa Beach. I have to admit, it seems like I have been going to Abigaile longer than that, but the fact of the matter is that we did not even discover Abigaile and the Brewery at Abigaile until last May during American Craft Beer Week. We became instant fans of not only the fine brews turned out by Brewmaster Brian Brewer, but we found the food creations of Chef Tin to be equally worth returning for. Of course, I would be remiss in not acknowledging the positive attitude and genuine thankfulness for the support of their customers displayed by owner Jed Sanford that is echoed by all their employees.

This thankfulness was shown once again at the One Year Anniversary party which included free food and beer tastings for everyone that could get in. We have attended a few of these events and they are always packed, for good reason. The food tastings are usually items that are not found on the regular food menu and the featured beers are always amazing. Last night was the official release of Brian’s first anniversary double IPA, the 001 (Double-Oh One); I know I am not alone in saying it is one of his best double IPAs to date. I can’t wait to try the 002, next year.

Congratulations to Jed, Brian, Chef Tin and everyone involved with Abigaile and the Brewery at Abigaile. You have done well in your first year and you have created a nice following. Continue reading
