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

Strand Brewing Co hosts another Business & Beer

The South Bay’s most fun business networking group, Business & Beer, returned to the Strand Brewing Company tasting room Thursday and I think it is safe to say that everyone had a good time. We had close to 15 people come by with several of them being second time attendees. In addition, Rich Marcello, one of the co-owners of Strand Brewing Co, is always good about directing his customers that might benefit from our networking group over to us. We definitely appreciate it.

For those that are familiar with Strand Brewing Company but have not visited in the last couple of weeks, I encourage you to stop by and try their new Russian Imperial Stout. It may be the best beer I have tasted from Strand in the year I have been coming. I think we will have to try it in a beer float soon.

If you live or work in the South Bay area and networking is an important part of your business, either as an owner or an employee, you should stop by one of our weekly meetings. We meet every Thursday at a microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay. If you enjoy craft beers and have thought about starting your own business, come on by. You can talk to others that have made the move and you can enjoy some great beer while you are at it. Continue reading

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
