Societe Brewing Company of Kearny Mesa was named Small Business of the Year for one of the County’s State Assembly Districts.

Doug Constantiner, CEO and Founder of Societe, will be invited to a ceremony in Sacramento honoring small businesses from across California.

The Brewer, a staple of the Kearny Mesa community since its founding in 2012, was born out of Constantiner’s deep experience in the hospitality industry. He learned his trade working in various local businesses including Pizza Port Carlsbad, Green Flash, Oggi’s and The Bruery.

The company is also committed to the community. The brewery has collected and donated thousands of pounds of food over the past decade to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank, helping to feed many families in need.

The Company’s main beers are Pupil, an India Pale Ale, Coachman, a Session IPA, and Harlot, a lager. Special editions include Good of the Public, a San Diego-style IPA, and the Butcher, an Imperial stout.

“Doug Constantiner’s commitment to improving the community has made Societe Brewing a notable standout in San Diego County,” said Assemblyman Brian Maienschein, who represents the 77th District. “I’m proud to recognize such a hardworking person and an amazing company that puts our community first.”
