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.

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.
