SAN DIEGO—Beginning 10 a.m. on Wednesday, February 22, tickets will go on-sale for SOCIETE 5, an anniversary celebration steeped in equal parts decadence and gluttony. Taking place, Saturday, June 24, this multi-faceted fete will celebrate Kearny Mesa-based Societe Brewing Company’s first five years in business behind an abundance of unlimited beer offerings bolstered by dishes from a dozen guest chefs designed specifically to pair with those liquid assets. The festivities will take place as follows:
FIVE-YEAR FEST | June 24, 1-5 p.m.
Societe will hold a food-and-beer festival featuring unique dishes developed by members of foodie fraternity, the “5-Chef Societe.”
Tickets include: Entrance to the event, commemorative SOCIETE 5 festival glass and unlimited servings of beer (including all beers in Societe’s tasting room) and unlimited food (while supplies last).
FIVE-YEAR FEAST | June 24, 5-10 p.m.
Societe’s tasting room will house a beer-paired feast commencing with a one-hour beer-and-charcuterie reception, followed by a five-course, seated dinner featuring more 5-Chef Societe dishes paired with rare ales as well as beer and truffles for guests to take home.
Tickets include: Entrance to the Five-Year Fest and Five-Year Feast, commemorative SOCIETE 5 festival glass and limited-edition SOCIETE 5 stemware, and all the food and beer at both events (including all beers on-tap at Societe’s tasting room, plus beer and truffles to-go).
The aforementioned 5-Chef Societe is made up of Anthony Sinsay (Jsix), Hanis Cavin (Carnitas’ Snack Shack), Rich Sweeney (Waypoint Public), Daniel Barron (Bull & Grain), Jeff Bonilla (AToN Center), Lety Gonzalez (Uptown Tavern), Matt Richman (Table 1888), Karl Prohaska (Kitchens for Good), Eric Sarkisian (Pacific Beach AleHouse), Karen Barnett (Small Bar), Tyson Blake (O’Brien’s Pub) and Ashley Drake (The Chocolate Lush). Each has participated in annual 5-Chef Societe dinners at San Diego restaurants over the past five years, making this a grand-scale gastronome reunion of sorts.
