The brewery is in an industrial park with plenty of parking, which is always nice and not guaranteed in San Diego. It had an open seating plan, we were there early on a Thursday and there was plenty of seating available. They only have their beers on tap, with about eight to choose from. Most of their stuff is good to great, so this isn't an issue. Besides, I feel like you go to a brewery tasting room to try that brewery's beers. I liked that they let you do $1 tasters. However, they limit you to two per person, which I find mildly annoying. In addition to the tasters, you can buy a full beer of each of their offerings. Service was friendly, but not overly so.

Good time overall at Société, but got some unexpected attitude from the bartender for no apparent reason. He could use a few lessons in customer service. Enjoyed the beers very much.

One of the standout breweries in the San Diego area for me.

Staff here was cool as hell and allowed for great conversation.

The beer selection was varied and there were a few real standouts. Prices are very fair. Definitely a nice stop in SD and one that can be made before continuing on to Alesmith, and other north SD breweries and spots.

Visited on December 5, 2015. Societe has made the most of its industrial park setting. Very nice interior space that is decorated with a unique "old-timey" feel. I had the Pupil and the Butcher. Both were excellent.

Stopped by during 2015 San Diego Beer Safari. Had wanted to check out Societe for some time. Great place, and despite long lines in a tasting room Saturday afternoon...things went well and nicely paced. Never felt overly cow penned and yet never felt stuck in traffic either. Place was large and packed. Big modern hip and fun. Great choice of beers, and upbeat staff. Plenty of stuff to buy on the side. Food was tasty. Definitely a place among hundreds in SD...but one to make sure you get to. More than up to the hype.

Small, family and dog friendly tasting room with long shared tables. Very chill place with board games offered. Laid back vibe. This brewery is a growler only brewery with really awesome beer. If in San Diego check it out. Hopefully they will be packaging soon.

This is always one of my favorites in San Diego. Their IPAs and Stout is really something to try. The ambiance is great with a fairly large tasting room. Pets and kids are welcome (but no food for sale) and the people are always really nice. Prices are pretty standard (very reasonable) but the beer is what will keep you coming back. My favorites are The Butcher and The Pupil.
