Business & Beer returns to El Segundo Brewing Co

These photos are from our Business & Beer meetup last night at El Segundo Brewing Company (ESBC), a microbrewery in downtown El Segundo that specializes in great ales. We had a nice turnout of 10, which is pretty good considering that ESBC is the most northern location we visit. Unfortunately, our use of Meetup.com did nothing to strengthen our numbers this time around; but we will give them a try for another month.

If you know of or own a gastropub in the South Bay area that we have not visited and you feel would be a great location for a Business & Beer gathering, please comment below or contact me via my Facebook page and we will come check it out. Our requirements are that you have a wide selection of American craft beers on tap and that you have room to accommodate a group of 10-20 with ease. Plenty of parking would be a plus.

If networking is part of your job description and you live or work in the South Bay area, you might want to check out BusinessNBeer.com; it is the new business networking group with no dues, no mandatory meetings, no restrictions. You do not need a special invitation, just show up when you can. We visit a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay area every Thursday night at 6:00 PM. You will have a good time, discover new beers and you might even do some business in the process. Continue reading

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

Meetup with the Original Sinners RC

My regular readers are probably aware that our business networking group, Business & Beer, recently joined Meetup.com in an attempt to build on the number of attendees at our weekly gatherings. For those unaware of what Meetup is, it is an online social media site that allows people with common interests to set up offline gatherings. In other words, a social media portal that actually encourages you to get away from Facebook and Twitter for a while. Whether you are looking for a business networking group or people to hunt butterflies with you, there is a good chance meetup.com can help you. When I was perusing the many Meetup groups in my area, I came across the Original Sinners RC (Riding Club), which is a subsidiary of the Original Sinners MC (Motorcycle Club).

I had to ask how a motorcycle club found its way to using social media and discovered that a few of the Original Sinners previously joined another group of motorcycle enthusiasts via Meetup. For some reason that I do not recall, these few splintered off and formed the Original Sinners MC. They then decided to utilize Meetup to find additional people to ride with and hopefully find new members to the actual club. Continue reading
