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.

Excellent San Diego brewery focusing on IPAs and Belgians with a smattering of stouts. Their beer is mainly available through select beer bars and their tasting room/production facility off Clairemont Mesa Boulevard 10 minutes drive north of downtown San Diego. Tasting room offers full pours, growlers, and taster size portions. No food at offered at the tasting room, but they do host a regular rotation of food trucks. Highly recommended and hard to get outside of San Diego.

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.
