Free Comic Book Day…sounds pretty awesome, right? Well, we think so. Beginning in 2002, Free Comic Book Day was initiated to capture the fascination of the young and the young-at-heart, helping to promote comic book artists and local comic book shops. Jamie and the good people right around the corner at Southern California Comics participate in Free Comic Book Day every year. This year, on May 3, they will again be showcasing some pretty “super” comic books, and of course, their guests will be able to grab a free comic book to enjoy. They will be kicking off the day around 9:00am, and they expect that they will be rocking and rolling until about 5:00pm.
Just like last year, Societe Brewing Company cannot help ourselves but get involved – we are likewise geeks, we just geek out over beer. OK, sometimes marvelous comic books too. On Saturday, May 3, we will be opening our doors early at 11:00am. So go check out Jamie’s shop and then follow the signs for awesome beer. We will be offering $1 off of full pours for folks who bring in their Free Comic Book. We will also have free Boylan’s craft sodas for those folks who are under 21 or who don’t happen to care for a beer. We want all comic book lovers to feel welcome at our brewery.
But it gets better! The wonderful people at Pho Realz SD will be getting here right at 11:00am, and they will have you covered for lunch. They make awesome Southeast Asian Street Food that goes incredibly well with a glass of our Out West, Old World, or Stygian beer. They will be sticking around to serve food until they run out of grub, but we will be open and pouring awesome San Diego Craft Beer until 10:00pm that night.
