From day one, we have handled every aspect of our business, from building our brewery to brewing our beers and serving them to our friends and fans in our tasting room. That DIY spirit extended to our sales and distribution. For seven years, we delivered every single keg and bottle of Societe beer that made it out of our home base, but thanks to all of you, the demand for our ales and lagers has risen to the point where there is simply no way we can continue to self-distribute. It’s time to hand it over, so that’s just what we’re doing. It’s something we didn’t take lightly. Once we determined it was time to go this direction, we met several times with literally every distributor servicing our home region. There are numerous distro operations doing a terrific job here, but over the course of our search, one proved a perfect fit; a distributor that, like us, is focused solely on San Diego County and, to our great pleasure, features a number of industry veterans we know, respect and really, really like. That interest is Scout Distribution, and we are proud to announce our newly-inked partnership with them. They will begin distributing our beers in early-June. What will this mean? For fans of our beer, it will be easier to find and available in far more locations, so that’s pretty fantastic. For us, it’ll make it easier for us to commit our resources to everything else that goes into running a brewery, including the most important thing – making the best quality beer possible!

Dear Friends & Fans: Societe Brewing Company opened in 2012 as the realization of a shared vision between Doug Constantiner and Travis Smith for a brewery devoted to serving the best beer humanly possible. From the moment our founders met, their friendship and professional relationship have thrived based on a nearly identical love of beer and respect for the manufacture, preservation and enjoyment of that noble beverage. Working together, Doug, Travis and the entire Societe family racked up countless memories. From building out the brewery to opening our doors, to brewing world-class beer, to winning awards and holding immensely fun events at our tasting room, we’ve packed a lifetime of special moments into the past seven-plus years. That’s not to say that we didn’t face our share of challenges along the way.

Wow!  We are quickly approaching our second anniversary here at Societe Brewing Company.  Time flies when you are having fun!  We have been working hard to make Societe a truly special brewery in San Diego, and to be honest, we sometimes have had to put of working on the launch of a new website so that we could focus on brewing and serving the most awesome beer possible.

Thanks for your patience, but here it is: Societe Brewing Company’s official new web presence.   We will try to make this space the one-stop location for all sorts of fascinating information about our brewery, about our brewers, about our staff, about our beer, and about what’s new, improved, and freakin’ awesome here at Societe.

Sign-up for our (coming soon-ish) Monthly Newsletter, and please, shoot us an email or give us a call and let know us what you think about the new website!

Cheers!

Hi everyone,

Some of you may have noticed that we recently posted a job opening for an entry-level brewery position on TapHunter’s CraftBeerCareers.com.  As of yesterday, we hired our newest employee, Tyler Tucker!

Tyler’s love for beer began like many with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.  He became hooked on craft beer and constantly sought out many styles and varieties from breweries near and far.  After some time, Tyler moved to San Diego where his love for beer was fueled by the many excellent breweries this city is gifted with.
