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.

I like that they only allow 2 tastings per fight. Allows you to really taste their beer, slowly. Nice big airy brewery, and staff was pretty knowledgeable.

One of many new wave breweries to open in San Diego, a beer from Societe hadn't even hit my lips until my visit to the brewery itself. It was from the agenda of a few overseas beer geeks from abroad which brought me here, so it shows that Societe is already attracting attention from outside the US.

After a quick and fun tour (reservations required), the beer tasting started. 11 different beers were tap, separated into three different columns on its overhanging wooden beer menu. One column listed Belgian styled ales, the middle posting hoppy ales, and the right with dark offerings. I tasted three different beers (The Apprentice, The Pugilist, The Publican), all of good quality. Paired with a good buzz in the tasting room and the thought that a sour beer program is in the works, Societe has the ability to nudge its head at the high level set by Stone, AleSmith, Ballast Point, et all in the region.

I like this place a lot, even though they don't bottle yet. Parking can be a little tight, especially on weekends. The inside area is spacious and open. Dogs are allowed. Limited outdoor seating. Bathrooms are multiple men/women and usually clean. Bar service area is standard, using ipads for electronic transactions. Growler fills are reasonable priced, not overcharging for SSteel growler options. I personally use the unmarked SSteel growlers, which I can use at sevral other places also. Check the website for taplist and food truck options. The occasional special release, also noted on website. in a business neighborhood with other food/fuel options if needed and close to major highway exit. Hope this helps. Cheers.

One of the best spots to go get tasters in the area
tasters are $1 for 4oz for most and the stuff is top quality
it has great atmosphere like turn of the century new york style
allows you to bring in dogs and staff is knowledgeable and friendly
A+++++
