South Bay Beer Week at Sophie’s Place

This week our favorite gastropub in Redondo Beach, Sophie’s Place, is having a South Bay Beer Week in which they have dedicated their eight taps to four of the South Bay’s microbreweries; Monkish Brewing, Strand Brewing Company, El Segundo Brewing Company and Smog City Brewing. Sophie’s Place is owned by three brothers that are craft beer fans and one, Bobby, is a home brewer. Bobby told me that “many are still unaware of the incredible beers right in their own ‘hood” so he decided to have a “dedication of South Bay beers on all taps all week.”

The beer on tap at Sophie’s Place this week are Rosa’s Hips and Crux from Monkish Brewing; Beach House and Atticus IPA from Strand Brewing; Citra Pale and Hyperion Stout from El Segundo Brewing; and Saber Toothed Squirrel and Groundworks Coffee Porter from Smog City. It really is a nice example of the varied beers brewed around here. In addition to the taps being devoted to our local brewers, they also had a Meet & Greet last night with Tom Kelley of El Segundo Brewing Company. Rich Marcello of Strand Brewing Company will be there tonight.

If you are in the Riviera Village and want a good meal with some great beers, I recommend you stop by Sophie’s Place and support the local business that is supporting local brewers. Continue reading

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
