These photos are from the Business & Beer return visit to the El Segundo Brewing Company (ESBC) tasting room. This was our second visit to ESBC and we had a few more people than our first visit there, so that was a good thing. El Segundo Brewing, also known as Blue House Ales, is a microbrewery that makes some of my favorite IPA’s (White Dog and Two 5 Left). They also have some nice pale ales as well as their Hyperion Stout. Last night they offered a vanilla bean stout that was so good we had to bring a growler home with us. Since it is football season and ESBC offers tacos for Thursday Night Football, their Thursday night visitors usually stick around a little longer. Since the World Series is going on, they showed the San Francisco Giants winning game two instead of football, but I heard no complaints about that. Since there was a pretty large group of people not associated with Business & Beer, we had a few people asking about the Business & Beer concept, so we may have gained some new attendees.
Next week we will be returning to Strand Brewing Company in Torrance. Strand Brewing is one of my favorite microbreweries in Torrance and has a great selection of ales, IPA’s and a nice stout. This will be our third visit to Strand Brewing, so you know it is a crowd favorite; if you have not joined us there yet, you are in for a treat.
