We all know the story, more or less.  In 1810, the Crown Prince Ludwig of Germany got hitched up to the Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildurghausen and it was party time. Ever since, the official Oktoberfest beer festival has been held in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, spanning 16 days during late September and early October.

This year, we’re joining in on the celebration.  Societe Fest.

From September 19 – October 31, we will be offering $4 half-liter steins of four of our beers that fit the bill.  We’re pouring:

  • The Harlot: our Belgian Extra Ale.
  • The Bachelorette: our rotating Single-hop Lager with Wakatu hops.
  • The Heiress: our brand new (and super-freakin’ tasty) Czech-style Pilsner.
  • The Fräulein: our (even more) brand new Dusseldorf-style Altbier.

We don’t have any branded steins for sale (at least not this year) and we aren’t selling the blank steins for purchase.  But we are keeping it simple, serving up delicious beer in a neat glass for a great price.

It’s Summer, and there’s a ton of great beer to drink in San Diego.  We’re teaming up with two of our favorite breweries in town—Benchmark Brewing Company and Fall Brewing Co.—to make that super easy.

The Summer Solstice Ale Trail is back again for 2015.  If you traveled the Ale Trail last year, you already know how it works, but here’s a refresher on what’s going on for this year.  Throughout the entire month of June, stop into any of our three brewery’s tasting rooms and pick up your official 2015 Summer Solstice Ale Trail Passport.

Keep this card handy, as each time you visit one of our breweries you will collect a stamp on the Passport in recognition of your visit.  By visiting all three breweries, and collecting all three stamps, you will successfully complete the passport (and hopefully taste a lot of great San Diego beer along the way).  Once you have a completed Passport, redeem that card at any of our locations in order to receive a commemorative pair of drinking socks.  That’s right, this year you will take home a swanky pair of drinking footwear to make your friends jealous and to keep your feet looking fresh.

The Passports and the drinking socks will be available at each brewery while supplies last, and you’ve got from June 1 – June 30 to complete the Ale Trail.

Oh yeh, you know that the American Homebrewers Association is coming to San Diego again this year for the National Homebrewers Conference, right?  Well, you do now.  As part of the Conference, we’re making it even easier to complete the Ale Trail.  Thanks to our friends at Brewery Tours of San Diego, we will have a free shuttle bus that runs from the Conference location at the Town & Country Resort to Benchmark Brewing Company, to Societe, then on over to Fall Brewing Co., and then back to the Town & Country Resort.  This shuttle hits the Trail on June 9 from 3:00pm – 8:00pm, and there couldn’t be an easier or safer way to complete the Ale Trail in one afternoon of awesome San Diego beer-infused fun.

We’re dreaming about a tall glass of “Table Beer,” a full pour of “The Harlot,” and a creamy pour of “2 a.m. Bike Ride” right now…it just sounds like Summer.

For those who need to know, you can find us all at:

  • Benchmark Brewing Company – 6190 Fairmount Ave., Ste. G, San Diego, CA 92120 – @BenchmarkBrew
  • Fall Brewing Co. – 4542 30th Street, San Diego, CA 92116 – @FallBrewing
  • Societe Brewing Company – 8262 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., San Diego, CA 92111 – @SocieteBrewing

Plan to ride along the Ale Trail this Summer, and join us and our friends at Benchmark Brewing Company and Fall Brewing Co. in celebrating some of the best beer that San Diego has to offer.  Oh, and drinking socks.

June 2014 | Societe Brewing Company

Summer is almost here and there is no better time to celebrate with some amazing San Diego Craft Beer.  Our brewery, as well as our friends at Benchmark Brewing Company and the folks at BNS Brewing & Distilling, all celebrate our anniversaries in the month of June.  This year, we celebrate our second year of brewing in San Diego, whereas Benchmark and BNS are both celebrating one year of open doors in what we feel is the best beer city in the world.

We wanted to share a celebration, and share a lot of great San Diego Craft Beer, with the beer enthusiasts of San Diego.  Starting June 1, you can visit any of our three breweries to pick up an official 2014 Summer Solstice Ale Trail Passport.  At each Tasting Room, you can collect a stamp on the Passport that recognizes that you helped take part in the celebration at that brewery.  By collecting a stamp at each brewery location and completing the Passport, you can then redeem the Passport at the final brewery to receive a commemorative 2014 Summer Solstice Ale Trail bar towel (while supplies last – don’t miss out!).

So come out to the Tasting Room, see our brewery, and raise a glass in celebration of Summer.  Get your Ale Trail Passport, and then make it a point to visit Matt and Rachael at Benchmark Brewing and check out the awesome sessionable beers that they are brewing.  Then go head out to see Wes and Dan at BNS Brewing & Distilling, and check out an awesome brewery that is also making some innovative distilled spirits.  Hopefully along this journey you will make some new friends and you will discover some incredible beer, brewed right here in San Diego.

If you have any questions about the 2014 Summer Solstice Ale Trail, give us a call at 858-598-5145.  Or better yet, stop by the Tasting Room, pick up your Passport, and hop on the Ale Trail…

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.

For more information about Free Comic Book Day at Southern California Comics, you can visit or give them a call at 858-715-8669.  If you want some more details about how we will be involved, give us a shout at 858-598-5415.  Come see us on Free Comic Book Day!  Cheers.
