This week Part 2:
Best San Diego Brewery:
Societe Brewing Company.
Societe is a world class craft brewery. It’s no surprise our readers decided that it was the best of 2016. Whether you’re Team Apprentice or Team Pupil, or you favor the Belgian “Old World” styles over “Stygian” offerings – West Coaster staff and readers have yet to bear witness to a bad Societe beer. Recently, the company collected more than 20,000 pounds of food for San Diego’s less fortunate with creative bottle pricing: if you brought in 50 pounds of food, the beer could be had for just $5 (normally $50).
