Stopped in here after visiting Alesmith, had a few of their beers in SF about a week ago so I was really looking forward to trying a few more of them at the source. Upon entering it is quickly apparent that this place is WAY bigger than it looked like from the outside. Tons of tables to the left over near the large barrel room with a large L shaped bar to the right. Atmosphere was pretty good even for the middle of the afternoon. Plenty of people milling about the large seating area creating a laid back vibe. Service was solid all around. I was served by two different bartenders and both were good. Guy just wanted to get my beers and thats about it while the woman was more pleasant and talked to me for a little while. Quality was quite high. From the nice wood bar tops to the stainless metal growlers, everything just feels high end. Selection was quite good, they had 9 beers on and 2 others kicked. I was a little sad the pale ale was off because I had heard such amazing things but the other 9 more than made up for that. Prices were no problem, growlers are a little on the high side but they use metal ones so no problem there just be prepared for it. I got a 1L for $15, can’t wait to use it. Overall a really awesome brewery with a really nice space to showcase their beers. I will definitely return the next time I am in the area. (1,351 characters)

Their space is really nice and the big board makes it easy to figure out what to get if you don't know what you want already. Getting a pint or a growler fill is very easy with multiple people working to get pours and fills out. Not too far away from downtown SD or Northpark so it's never a hassle to get out to Societe... plus Council is just a few minutes down the street! (378 characters)

Laid back, chill, relaxing. Dozen or so of their beer offerings on tap. No food. (82 characters)

Love the Pupil; I make this trip often just to fill up my growlers that last no longer than that same weekend.

No food served here although the rotating food trucks are often great. You can get various sample size pours up to the full size (are they even 12oz?). The Pupil and Butcher are a must and you may as well try the Apprentice and Roustabout. Definitely worth the trip, buy the pricey growlers once and be sure to come back for fills. (446 characters)
