The brewery is in an industrial park with plenty of parking, which is always nice and not guaranteed in San Diego. It had an open seating plan, we were there early on a Thursday and there was plenty of seating available. They only have their beers on tap, with about eight to choose from. Most of their stuff is good to great, so this isn't an issue. Besides, I feel like you go to a brewery tasting room to try that brewery's beers. I liked that they let you do $1 tasters. However, they limit you to two per person, which I find mildly annoying. In addition to the tasters, you can buy a full beer of each of their offerings. Service was friendly, but not overly so.

Societe Brewing is located in an industrial business park. Once you enter inside you do feel different, in a good way, like a brewery. It was a nice vibe. The tap and bar area is near the entrance and they had tables and chairs around. The production area is visible from the tasting room which I think creates a nice environment to enjoy beers and talk with friends.

They had about 10 Societe beers on tap. The server was nice and welcoming. I had couple of their stouts, both of which were good. One wish I have is if they could serve some of their sours on tap.

Enjoyed my visit.

Don't judge a book my its cover. Non-descript exterior hides a welcoming interior. Beer is exceptional and the beer-tenders are friendly and knowledgeable. Great selection...from west coast hoppy to roasty brews rarely associated with southern California.

World class beer but the worst service of any brewery in SD. They love the word "no" so be prepared. There were two of us and we asked for 3 tasters and we were told "only two at at a time". So one per person? Then they tell us they'll fill "any" flip top growler. We head to the car and when we return they say "oh the neck's too narrow, We'll waste too much beer". It's pretty clear they don't need our business...

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.
