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.

We value the integrity and quality of our beer, and we appreciate the fact that you do, too. So, if you’re looking to get a growler filled, here is our policy outlining the specific growler containers that we can fill with our beer at the Tasting Room. We will fill the following for customers who are 21 years of age and over:
- Any clean Societe-branded growler
- Any clean, blank 1-liter or 2-liter, swing-top growlers made of stainless steel
- Any clean, blank 2-liter growlers made of brown-glass
- Any clean, blank 1-liter or 2-liter, wide-mouth, swing-top growlers made of ceramic material
Samples of the specific growler types that we will fill are displayed in our Tasting Room, and you can always ask one of our beer-servers whether or not we will fill a specific growler. Please note that we will not fill any growler that:
- Has a screw-top or a threaded lid, including screw-top Hydroflask growlers
- Is made of clear, green or blue glass
- Is dirty or badly maintained
- Has another brewery’s or beer’s logo or information printed on it
- Has been obscured or defaced with stickers, duct tape or any other material
***UPDATE: In the Barrel is SOLD OUT!***
We are very excited to announce our first in-house beer dinner – In the Barrel.
Join the members of Societe for an exclusive first taste of Societe Brewing Company’s line of barrel-aged beers. The event will feature three unique beers drawn from our barrels, and will also include beers from our standard lineup. Each beer will be artfully paired with delectable fare from Alchemy during Societe’s first in-house beer dinner. This is the only opportunity to sample the first offering of beers from the barrel room.
Some of the great things about San Diego are the sun, surf, and plethora of activities to keep you busy. In August, you may have seen Travis on the cover of the West Coaster taking advantage of the sun and surf – well, sort of. He was captured soaring over Mission Bay in a jetpack. Yes, you read that correctly, a jetpack. He had the great opportunity to test out one of Jetpack America’s water-propelled Jetlev jetpacks.
With the holidays upon us, we will have slightly different hours so as to allow our staff to be with their loved ones. Please note the changes below:
Monday, December 24th = Closed
Tuesday, December 25th = Closed
Monday, December 31st = 11am-4pm
From all of us here at Societe Brewing Company, we wish you a joyous holiday season and a very happy new year!
