History, Hops, and Hospitality: Societe Brewing’s Old Town Experience

Societe Brewing’s motto is “Beer Folk Unite!” as they see their brewery as a vehicle for bringing people together from all walks of life. They are committed to creating beer that is both approachable and world-class, and to building a community of beer enthusiasts.

The Old Town San Diego location features 16 taps, serving the entirety of Societe’s beers, a retail corner, and walk-up order line. The taproom is located in a historic building and is decorated with piano scroll wallpaper and terracotta painted wood floors. The custom details in the taproom like the beer barrel chandelier, natural cedar bar, and original German beer garden tables contribute to its charming and nostalgic feel. The ambiance of the taproom is cozy and welcoming, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the beers they serve.

Societe Brewing offers a variety of beers that are made on-site using only the finest ingredients. The brewery’s flagship beers are The Pupil, a hoppy IPA, and The Apprentice, a Belgian-style ale. The brewery also offers a rotating selection of seasonal beers, such as The Harlot, a fruity farmhouse ale, and The Professor, a rich and complex old ale.

Societe Brewing is more than just a brewery, it’s a community hub. The taproom regularly hosts events such as trivia nights, live music, and charity fundraisers. The brewery also has a commitment to sustainability, using eco-friendly practices and supporting local organizations.

The Old Town Tasting Room is currently undergoing renovations. The expansion space will add a beer bar, retail shop, and onsite kitchen. The renovations will also remove the separating walls to allow light to flood the entirety of the space, creating a larger tasting room experience. The brewery plans to close for a short period in late 2023 to complete the renovations.

When visiting Old Town San Diego, be sure to stop by Societe Brewing for a taste of their delicious craft beer and to experience the neighborhood’s vibrant community. The brewery’s unique atmosphere, delicious beer, and friendly staff make it a must-visit destination for beer enthusiasts and anyone looking for a fun night out.
