San Diego craft beer stalwarts Societe will make an East Coast appearance at Decibel Metal & Beer Fest, bringing with them two diverse beers that will appeal to attendees of all craft beer preferences.
“I cannot wait for the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest,” Societe’s Doug Constantiner excitedly tells Decibel. “It combines my two greatest passions into one epic weekend. I am looking forward to connecting with other metal people and getting to pour them some Societe beer!”
Societe also gave us a preview of what they’ll be bringing to the fest.
The Butcher (Imperial Stout, 9.666% ABV)
The Butcher is a rich yet impressively drinkable imperial stout with Golding hops, roasted malts, oats, (and Orc’s Blood). Its profound roasted malt character and velvety smooth body conceals its alcoholic fortitude. A dense, cocoa-colored head delivers chocolaty aromas that segue beautifully to bittersweet, roasty flavors evocative of French Roast coffee. When we drink The Butcher, we indulge our inner-beasts by cranking up the death-metal.
The Heiress (Czech Pilsner, 5.3% ABV)
The Heiress is our take on a classic Bohemian pilsner containing Saaz and varying hops, pilsner malts. Refreshing and effervescent with a snow-white head, it’s earthy and floral with a clean, bitter finish. It’s the perfect beer for fans of traditional pilsners…and for converting people whose only reference-point for pilsners are the adjunct versions sold 24 to a box.

Metal & Beer Fest FAQs
What are my ticket options?
You can purchase a one- or two-day “Metal & Beer Ticket,” which allows you to watch all bands performing. It also gives you access to samples from all 20 breweries who will be at Decibel Metal and Beer Fest, as well as access to all breweries and bars plus a Decibel Metal and Beer Fest tasting cup.
You may also purchase a one- or two- day “Just Metal” ticket (limited to 500 each day) that grants you access to all four bars on the first floor, as well as the ability to see each band playing. You will also have the opportunity to purchase samples of featured breweries from the bar.
How much does it cost?
“Metal & Beer” tickets are $80 for one day and $150 for both.
“Just Metal” tickets are $42 for one day and $82 for both.
If you bought four craft beers at the fest, you would be spending more than $40. The “Metal and Beer Ticket” pays for itself and then some!
Are the breweries in an area separate from the bands?
No, Decibel Metal & Beer Fest is a fully integrated fan experience. You can walk over to the 3 Floyds table, sample a “Blood of the Sunsets” beer, co-brewed by At the Gates, WHILE you watch At the Gates!
Is the event 21+, even if I purchase a “Just Metal” ticket?
Yes, the event is strictly 21+.
Will there be bottles/cans/etc. available to purchase from the breweries?
Nope. The only way to guarantee you can try every beer you want is to purchase a weekend-long “Metal & Beer Ticket.”
Can I get a “Just Beer” ticket?
No. Leave the hall, poser.
Where can I get tickets to the official Decibel Metal & Beer Fest After Party with Primitive Man and Black Urn?
