The Harlot Belgian Extra Ale
- The Harlot sits perfectly between a Czech lager and a Belgian Ale. It starts with a pilsner recipe then is fermented with Societe’s ale yeast. A light, crisp beer with that well-rounded and complex Belgian body. Perhaps it wasn’t a style that was meant exist, but we’re sure glad this beer does.
- ABV: 5.6%
- Named 2013 Beer of the Year by The Brewing Network.
The Apprentice IPA
- The Apprentice focuses on hops from the Pacific Northwest with Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo all hailing from Washington. The result is an assertively bitter and piney (Simcoe) brew with floral notes (Centennial) and grapefruit and orange (Amarillo).
- ABV: 7.2%
- Hops: Centennial, Simcoe and Amarillo
The Pupil IPA
- As with any West Coast IPA, the focus is on the hops. The floral notes of Centennial in combination with the grapefruit-citrus notes of the Citra create exactly what you’re craving. (In the weeks preparing for the Societe Tap Takeover, we pulled in The Pupil, and we’re learning it’s difficult to keep enough Pupil kegs in stock!) The kicker here is the Nelson Sauvin, and if you read about or attended our Green Flash-Alpine Brewing Tap Takeover, then you know how rare and celebrated these New Zealand Nelson hops have become. It’s the strong white wine (see – Nelson SAUVIN) astringency and tangerine and grapefruit notes that keep beer-lovers asking for more.
- ABV: 7.5%
- Hops: Centennial, Citra and Nelson Sauvin
The Bachelor IPA
- The Bachelor is an exploration in hops. Each beer is brewed with a base IPA recipe and a single hop varietal, thus isolating the hops unique characteristics.

The Coachman IPA
- IPA-lovers shouldn’t skip over The Coachman Session IPA. One might think this is why the marketers over at Societe have referred to it as a “Really Small IPA” in order to differentiate it from the stigma of Session IPAs—“hop-flavored water.” We’ll start with Simcoe for bittering and piney notes and Mosaic for floral and tangerine and berries. In the Coachman we also have the noble hop varietal of Saaz, a noble hop for adding those earthy aromatics and crisp spiciness of lagers and pilsners. The result creates a floral and hoppy brew than doesn’t fall flat in the end--instead you get the crisp, herbal finish and the low ABV.
- ABV: 4.7%
- Hops: Saaz, Simcoe and Mosaic
- 40% malted wheat in addition to the malted barley
