A large taproom that is right next to the production facility. Large bar and ample seating available. Service was a bit slow but place was packed. They had 20ish beers on tap plus a few bottles available to go. No food on site but they have food trucks. Prices were inline with the area breweries. A strong brewery.
Large taproom, pretty much and extension of a largeish production facility, only FVs visible on casual inspection. Bar on one end and tables, small sidewalk patio, lots of parking. No flights, but four ounce pours, half pours or full pours available, two at a time max. Every single beer was delicious, regardless of style, and some were better than that. Friendly staff. Food truck. Must visit.
Visited on a Friday afternoon in February 2017. A rather large place with a prompt service. The beers were decent. Located close to Council, around 15 minutes with Uber from my hotel in San Diego, The Lafayette.
Probably my favorite taproom in San Diego of the dozen or so I visited. Located in an industrial area just off Route 163. Easy to find. Plenty of parking. Visited on a Monday afternoon. Large seating area. Good service. Great selection. Love that they offer half pours. They also happened to be rocking some great 80’s tunes while I was there.
Visited with Linh on our last trip out to SD. Nice big warehouse with a tasting room, friendly service, tons of seating area and optionality for smaller serving sizes and tasters. Solid beer and while there’s no food inside, there was a food truck outside when we were visiting.
My first stop on beercation and it couldn’t have been a better welcome to my left coast excursion. Outstanding beer, mellow atmosphere and fabulous, friendly service that was knowledgeable and also helpful in finding more destinations. Cheers!
Visited on a Wednesday night. It seemed to be in a small commercial/industrial strip, but once inside you realize how big the place is. Very small bar with no seating, but lots of tables throughout an expansive area. They’ve definitely gone with a hipster vibe here, but the people there seemed to come from all walks of life. The place was packed, but service was surprisingly quick at the bar. They had a thing where you can only order a couple tasters at a time, which was kind of annoying since I had to keep going to the bar for more, but whatever. You get a nice view of the brewery from the tasting area which is always a plus for me. All the beers were good with a few standing out as excellent. I was surprised how reasonable priced it was considering the upscale feel to the place. Overall, this is a very nice place with a fun vibe and great beers. What more could you ask for?
On a recent San Diego beer trip, we had visited several bars around town, and the brewery a lot of bartenders seemed to geek out about was Societe. We went here on a Sunday afternoon and had a nice relaxing couple of delicious beers. They had some really good well balanced IPAs, and their Imperial Stout was decidedly above average. There is a lot of space to spread out and enjoy a good time with a group of people. They usually have a food truck, and we paired our beers with some egg rolls and dumplings.
Besides the already delicious beer offerings, Societe has a barrel aging program that is already in the works. We all just have to be patient for the proper amount of time to pass. They are taking their time to do things right. Knowing the experience these brewers have from working for other well known breweries, we are all in for a treat. I can’t wait.
