Business N Beer’s return visit to Sophie’s Place, Redondo Beach

These photos are from our Business & Beer networking group’s return to Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach last night. Sophie’s Place is a gastropub that serves really good food and offers 50 varieties of craft beer with eight brews on rotating taps. While our last few Business & Beer gatherings have had six or seven people show up, last night we had about 15. I was happy to see the big turnout, we had a good time.

If networking helps your business or it fits into your job description and you live or work in the South Bay, come check out Business & Beer. Business & Beer is a different kind of networking group. Unlike the more well-known business networking groups, there are no mandatory meetings, no dues, no restrictions on who can join. We meet every Thursday night at 6:00 PM and we meet at various microbreweries, brewpubs and gastropubs in the South Bay area. There are probably 50 people that have joined us, with our typical gatherings having between 10 and 15 people; with sometimes being less and sometimes more. The one consistent factor is that we have a good time and meet new people; oh, and we drink some good beer. If you want to join us, simply show up. The schedule is on the front page of BusinessNBeer.com and you can sign up to the mailing list so you will be notified when a date has been set. You can also follow us on Facebook to be sure you are kept in the loop. Continue reading

Business & Beer return visit to The Rockefeller

These photos are from our Business & Beer gathering last Thursday at The Rockefeller Gastropub in Hermosa Beach, CA. The Rockefeller has been one of our favorite destinations since we discovered them back in May. They offer a wide selection of craft beers on tap and have a food menu that seems to change with the seasons. You can always find something interesting on it. In addition, they constantly have wine and beer tastings and various food specials going on what seems daily. You should check them out if you haven’t, it is always a pleasant experience.

Our group was smaller than usual, but that did not stop anyone from having a good time. If you are a small business owner in the South Bay and enjoy American craft beers as well as networking with others, you should check out Business & Beer, the different kind of networking group. No rules, no dues, no mandatory meetings; just like-minded individuals that enjoy good beer. You really have nothing to lose and we would love to meet you. Continue reading

2012 Chamber Holiday Regional Mixer at Rolling Hills Country Club

These photos are from the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce Holiday Regional Mixer which was held last night, December 4, at the Rolling Hills Country Club in Rolling Hills Estates, CA. This was our second time attending the holiday regional mixer and I have to say, it is one of my favorite events of the year as far as the Chamber of Commerce is concerned. There was plenty of networking opportunities available with Chamber members representing Carson, El Segundo, Gardena Valley, Harbor City/Harbor Gateway, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Lawndale, LAX Coastal Area, Lomita, Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Peninsula, Redondo Beach, San Pedro, Torrance and Wilmington included in the mix. These events have more people than you can ever interact with, but when you keep seeing the same faces at different functions eventually you will talk if there is any chance of doing business together.

The Rolling Hills Country Club is a nice venue and while it is a private club they are available for special functions. In addition to the networking opportunities there was a D.J., a magician, hors d’oeuvres and door prizes. We contributed a certificate for a free beer at an upcoming Business & Beer event and I won a tour of the S.S. Lane Victory. I am looking forward to that and taking more photos to share here.
