This Holiday season, we are bringing back our Holiday Food Drive, working in partner with the good people at The Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank.

Food Drive

Our in-house Food Drive kicks off on Friday, November 28 when we re-open the Tasting Room for regular hours after the Thanksgiving Holiday.  We will be running the Food Drive through December 24, so you will have plenty of time to come into the brewery and drop off non-perishable food items and help out those in need.

Y’all did such a great job last year in helping to bring in food, that this year, we feel that we can do even better.  To help thank you for your generous donations, we are offering $1 off the price of full pours of our beer for the duration of the Food Drive for anyone (21 years or older, with valid identification) who brings in a food item on the Food Bank’s “Most Needed Food Items” list.  These items have the most impact nutritionally, and they really benefit those in need.  We are talking:

  • Canned Meat & Tuna
  • Canned Soups
  • Canned Fruits & Vegetables
  • Canned Beans
  • Dry Cereal
  • Rice
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Spaghetti
  • Infant Formula
  • Peanut Butter
  • Powdered Milk

Any time that you bring in an item, you are entitled to the $1 off of full pours discount.  Bring in a food item on Tuesday, and get $1 off all of your full pours.  Come back again on Saturday with some more food, you get $1 off all your full pours again on that day too.  And if that were not enough incentive to help out an awesome cause, we wanted to set a few goals for the Drive.  We brew beer by the barrel here at Societe, and the Food Bank gave us a barrel for the drive, so let’s go with goals per barrel:

  • If you collectively donate enough food (~200 pounds) to fill up one barrel, we will offer $1 off the price of a 2L growler fill for the rest of the Food Drive.
  • If you donate enough food (~400 pounds) to fill up two barrels, we will offer $1 off the price of a 1L growler fill as well as $2 off the price of a 2L growler fill for the rest of the Food Drive.
  • If you donate enough food (~600 pounts) to fill up three barrels, we will break out one of our favorite beers, The Highbinder, for pours in the Tasting Room.  That’s right, we will have a limited supply of our 6.2% ABV Barrel-aged and blended Feral beer with Raspberries available by the glass while the single keg that we have on-hand lasts.

So there you have it.  Choose your own adventure, one barrel, two barrels, or three…

Come out and help us help those in need.  Cheers.

————————

Well folks, you all did it.  Together you donated over 600 pounds of food to our food drive efforts, enough to fill three barrels worth of food.

As promised, today, December 16, 2014, we will be tapping a limited supply of our 6.2% ABV Barrel-aged and blended Feral beer with Raspberries, The Highbinder.

In the Tasting Room, starting at 5:00pm this evening, we will be offering 12oz. pours of The Highbinder for $8 each and 3oz. tasting pours of The Highbinder for $3 each, while supplies last.  This beer is tasting delicious right now, and by tapping the single keg we have on-hand, it is our small way to say thanks to you for your giant efforts this holiday season.  Our Food Drive for the San Diego Food Bank would not have been such a resounding success without the support and the contributions from each one of you.

Thanks so much.  Cheers.
