Business & Beer joins Meetup at The Rockefeller

The photos are from our Business & Beer networking group’s gathering at the Hermosa Beach gastropub, The Rockefeller. As I mentioned last week, we have decided to give a chance to see if we could build on the number of people that attend our networking events. Last week, with short notice, we had two new attendees that were a direct result of our joining meetup. Last night there were at least three Meetup attendees, however, we had more new people that regulars last night and I am not entirely sure if some of the others were there because of Meetup or because friends had told them about BusinessNBeer. Either way, we had a very nice turnout and it was probably enough that we will extend our trial of using Meetup to gain new members to our gatherings.

If you live or work in the South Bay area, enjoy networking and are a fan of American craft beer, you might want to consider coming to a networking event. Our attendees are friendly, social and are eager to meet you and learn about your business. The range of businesses in our group includes everything from air conditioning to web development. You can find the schedule on the front page of Continue reading

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 You can also sign up to the mailing list, or you can Like Us on Facebook to stay current.

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
