3rd Annual BAM Fest Santa Monica

Saturday, October 6, was the 3rd Annual BAM Fest (Beer, Art and Music Festival), which is a fundraiser benefiting the 18th Street Arts Center. I have been talking to many of the local brewmasters about this event and I heard nothing but good things about it; now I know why. This was a very fun event with beautiful weather, beautiful people, good food, good music and some really great beers.

All of the local micro breweries were represented with Strand Brewing, Monkish Brewing, The Brewery at Abigaile, El Segundo Brewing and Smog City all showing up. There were over 30 breweries represented with every type of beer you could hope for. In addition, there were several food trucks, Venice Ale House was making some great tacos and there was wine and craft soda tastings. You can see by the photos that everyone was having a really good time. I can not wait to come again next year. Continue reading

Business & Beer returns to The Rockefeller, Hermosa Beach

These photos are from our 13th Business & Beer gathering which was held at The Rockefeller in Hermosa Beach, which is one of our favorite gastropubs in the South Bay area. The Rockefeller offers some great menu selections and has about 25 beers on tap; which makes it perfect for Business & Beer.

While driving over there we discussed how many people we should expect. We knew that many of our regular attendees had other commitments so I was hoping for maybe 10 people to show up. I said that I would like to see one or two new faces and maybe a second time returnee or two; my expectations were blown out of the water. We had one of our largest gatherings to date with almost 10 first timers and another five [or so] second timers. It seems like every week the group grows and grows. I have to admit, I am really looking forward to seeing how large we are after six months or a year have gone by.

Next week we will be returning to Sophie’s Place in Redondo Beach, which I feel is the best gastropub in Redondo Beach. We had a blast the last time we were there and with the group’s growth, it should be even more fun the next time around. If you would like to attend one of our weekly gatherings, you are more than welcome. Our schedule of upcoming events can always be found on the front page of BusinessNBeer.com. You can also “Like Us” on Facebook or sign up to our mailing list so you are always in the loop of where we will be next. Come join us, you will enjoy it. Continue reading

Business & Beer comes to Tortilla Cantina, Torrance

It was Day 8 of LA Beer Week (LABW) and Business & Beer made their first appearance at Tortilla Cantina in Old Torrance. From what I heard and saw, everyone had a great time. Tortilla Cantina is a “taco bistro” that boasts 18 different kinds of tacos and 35 beers on tap. Most of the beers are craft beers with several local options available. We had about 15 people with a few first timers and a couple second timers; it looked like they were all enjoying the networking opportunity.

Next week, Business & Beer will return to The Rockefeller, a gastropub in Hermosa Beach. I know everyone that came out last time really enjoyed it and there have been several that told me they regretted not making it the last time, so I think we should have a nice group. Be sure to bring your business cards. The Rockefeller has a nice menu and specials on Thursdays. They have about 25 beers on tap, and serve flights. Tanya says they have the best burgers in the South Bay. I recommend their bread pudding, it rocks. Bring your other half and make an evening of it; they can sit with us too. We encourage it.
