Being an avid homebrewer and having familiarity with the madfermentationist blog, I'd heard about Modern Times and some of the great stuff they were doing so decided to stop in for a pint on a Thursday while on vacation.
Damn.. The tasting room is just my vibe. Huge mosaic on the wall made of post-it notes, interesting artwork all over, the brewery within eye site of the bar itself. I got a flight of the 4 beers that were the same as their packaged lineup. Not a bad one in the bunch! The coffee stout was extremly drinkable and the hoppy beers fresh as sin. Another thing I loved aout the beers was they were relativity session strength (4.8 - 6.7%) so I didn't have to worry too much.
The bartender was friendly and humored my beer nerd questions, I left with a shirt, some stickers and a strong inkling to return. One of the best places I've been in a while for being so new.

The place is in a quiet corner of the sports arena area of Point Loma. Nothing around so there was plenty of parking. Not many people inside, plenty of room at the bar (which was nice because we went there because Societe was super crowded).
Place was super clean, modern feeling. Kind of a cold atmosphere, maybe because it was so empty.
The selection was good but all the stouts happened to be of the coffee variety which I'm not a huge fan of. I had a pale ale which was quite good however.
Service was friendly, prices were reasonable.
Definitely a place I would go back to.
