These photos are from our Business & Beer meetup last night at El Segundo Brewing Company (ESBC), a microbrewery in downtown El Segundo that specializes in great ales. We had a nice turnout of 10, which is pretty good considering that ESBC is the most northern location we visit. Unfortunately, our use of Meetup.com did nothing to strengthen our numbers this time around; but we will give them a try for another month.
If you know of or own a gastropub in the South Bay area that we have not visited and you feel would be a great location for a Business & Beer gathering, please comment below or contact me via my Facebook page and we will come check it out. Our requirements are that you have a wide selection of American craft beers on tap and that you have room to accommodate a group of 10-20 with ease. Plenty of parking would be a plus.
If networking is part of your job description and you live or work in the South Bay area, you might want to check out BusinessNBeer.com; it is the new business networking group with no dues, no mandatory meetings, no restrictions. You do not need a special invitation, just show up when you can. We visit a different microbrewery, brewpub or gastropub in the South Bay area every Thursday night at 6:00 PM. You will have a good time, discover new beers and you might even do some business in the process.
