I visited on Sunday, June 8th 2014.
Large, pleasantly decorated tasting room. 11 beers available along with growlers, t-shirts, and all the usual merch.
The beers: Societe does not offer flights and limits each customer to two tastings at a time. There were four of us, so we were able to sample 8 beers at once, but this policy would make it difficult to do side by side tastings if you went on your own or with one other person.
All of their beers were good, but none of them blew me away. In fact, everyone in our group had a different favorite- no single standout.
My trunk is full of empty growlers and I wanted to get a growler fill, but they only fill their own growlers, or blank swingtops (stainless, brown glass, or ceramic). I would have bought one of theirs, but they charge the outrageous price of $25 for an empty growler! This price is the same for stainless or glass. I went to many breweries while visiting San Diego, and this is twice what any other brewery was charging for a new growler. Admittedly, stainless steel growlers are always expensive, but charging the same price for glass swing-tops is ridiculous.
