Our goal in SD was to try as many local beers as possible. We started our week at Societe Brewing. Got off the plane and went straight there and oh boy, vacation had begun. We started out right away with the sampler in the keeper glass trying all the IPA's and they all met the bill. The Apprentice was our favorite. The Everymans double IPA was great as well.

The tasting room itself is really nice. A huge bar area, and many large tables. All the seating looks custom made. Service was friendly and relaxed. No food is served her, but I guess they get food trucks at different times.

We liked the beer so much, we ended up stopping in a second time during the week. We were tempted to buy a growler to take home, but couldn't bring ourselves to drop $42.

Put this place on your list of breweries to go to in SD. This took the number one spot for us.

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.
