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

Business & Beer at Alpine Inn, Torrance

These photos are from our return visit to the Alpine Inn with our Business & Beer networking group. The Alpine Inn is a German gastropub that has a nice selection of craft beers from the United States, Germany and the Czech Republic. This was our third visit to the Alpine Inn and it seems that every time we meet there we have a nice turnout of about 15 people. When you consider that Alpine Village is the furthest south we take our group and that it was only three days after New Year’s Day, I was pleased to see the turnout.

If networking is important to your business and you live or work in the South Bay area, you should check out Business & Beer, the networking group that takes away the stress of meetups during normal working hours. Every Thursday at 6:00 PM we meet at a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub; if you enjoy good beer and social networking, Business & Beer is for you. Feel free to sign up to the mailing list or Like Us on Facebook to be kept aware of upcoming network events. You will meet some nice people and probably discover some new craft beers. There are no dues or rules, so there is no reason to not give it a try. Continue reading

Business & Beer comes to 1321 Downtown Taproom Bistro, Torrance

These photos are from our Business & Beer gathering at the 1321 Downtown Taproom Bistro, a gastropub located in Old Torrance. 1321 Taproom is a popular destination for beer drinkers due to the 16 taps of craft beers that they have available. They also offer flights of various sizes (4, 8, 12) for the adventurous craft beer drinkers out there. While the name indicates that they serve food as well as drink, they are in the process of redoing their kitchen staff and menu, so the kitchen is currently closed. To welcome Business & Beer for their first get-together at 1321, Chef Jacob prepared a small appetizer menu for us. I know some of their other customers were glad we were there as they were able to take advantage of the special menu as well. We had a very nice sized group and being just two days after Christmas I was happy to see that. I am sure we will come back after their full menu has returned.

2013 is almost upon us, so if you have made a New Year’s resolution to do more business networking, please feel free to join us at any or all of our weekly gatherings. We meet every Thursday at 6:00 PM at a microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay area. You can see the schedule at BusinessNbeer.com. Feel free to sign up to the mailing list to be kept aware of where we have been and where we are going next; you can also find us on Facebook. Continue reading
