Hot Sünner Nights at Select Beer

These photos were taken Wednesday evening, June 20, the first day of summer at Select Beer in Redondo Beach. To celebrate the Summer Solstice, Select Beer brought out the Sünner Kölsch, the classic beer of Cologne, Germany. After a couple tastes of it, there is no doubt it is a summer beer as it is very light. Probably tasty after chopping down trees in the Black Forest. I know the store was packed, and it was obvious most were there for the Sunner Kolsch.

After sampling the Sünner Kölsch we opted for something a little more stout and enjoyed the company of other like-minded beer drinkers. Speaking of like-minded beer drinkers, we are starting a new networking group for business owners in the South Bay. It is called Business & Beer and unlike the other business networking groups that have mandatory meetings, dues and occur before work or during lunch, we have none of that. The networking events will occur every Thursday at 6:00 PM and go on until 7:00 PM. Of course, if you are enjoying yourself you are more than welcome to stay later. Each week we will go to a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay area. The common denominator will be that they serve craft beer on tap and are a local business. Our first planned event will be at Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach on July 12. It looks like Abigaile in Hermosa Beach will be on the 19th. Stay tuned for more information. Following me on Facebook will ensure you always hear first. I hope lots of you can join us. Continue reading

American Craft Beer Week: Redondo Beach

The 7th annual American Craft Beer Week continues and we visited two more local craft beer suppliers; Select Beer Store and Redondo Beach Brewing Company, both located in the Riviera Village area of Redondo Beach. While I was readily familiar with Redondo Beach Brewing Company, I only became aware of Select Beer Store last weekend when we visited Strand Brewing Company and the beer-tender, Bonnie, informed us that Strand Brewing would be featured at Select Beer Store as part of American Craft Beer Week. Select Beer advertises that they stock more than 350 bottles and twelve rotating taps of American craft and imported beers. Since it is American Craft Beer Week, Select Beer had a South Bay Tap Takeover featuring El Segundo Brewing, Monkish, Strand Brewing and Smog City. While they do not offer flights, they did offer half pours so we were able to try a few different brews. The downside of that is that the beers we liked the best were not available “to go.” Oh well, guess we will have to return.

Since Select Beer Store does not offer food, we headed around the corner to Redondo Beach Brewing Company for some more tastings and some good food. As I mentioned above, I have been familiar with Redondo Beach Brewing Company for a while and that is why I had no hesitation in adding them to the local brewers I would visit this week. Redondo Beach Brewing Company currently has six different brews going; most of which I had tried previously, but the Belgian Winter Wheat was a new one for me and it was amazing. I think I may be becoming a fan of Belgian brews; at least the way they brew it in Southern California. Continue reading
