About Societe Brewing Company

Douglas and Travis developed a friendship while working together at The Bruery, discovering their shared eccentric philosophies on brewing. Over pints at preferred watering holes (O’Brien’s!), the two brew-brethren eventually hatched a plan to establish a brewing company of their own – where their vision for great beer would never be compromised.

The name of the brewery is an homage to beer as the planet’s greatest social uniter. Beer has persistently brought people together for centuries, ignoring class, race, creed, religion, sex, age and any other imaginable barriers to human connection. Beer is democratic. Beer is culture. Beer is Societe!

In 2012, Societe Brewing Company began production and opened their doors to a warm welcome from the craft beer community. Our brewery and tasting room occupy a 16,000 sq. ft. building in San Diego, California – arguably the premier craft beer city in the nation.

Our family of beers is made up of Out West hoppy ales, Belgian-inspired Old World brews, dark Stygian beers, and wine-barrel aged Feral sours handcrafted on a 20 barrel brewhouse. Our beers are available locally throughout San Diego and at our 3,000 SF tasting room, which showcases the brewing process with an unobstructed view of the barrel room and brewery.
