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. (884 characters)

Nice brewery. Sits in a warehouse type building. Tasting room is nice size with room at the bar and tables. Great service. Nice selection with about 15 on tap. Neat artwork, huge picture on the back wall created with post-it notes! (236 characters)

This place is a must visit if you love Modern Times beer! The vibe is very relaxed with the high ceilings and huge space with 'jazzy' music playing. The decoration is really creative as well! (193 characters)

Love the atmosphere of this place. A whole wall plastered in comic books, yes please! Freshly roasted coffee bean smells wafting out of the time office and cold brewed coffee on tap. It's a little bit pricey and they don't have tasters, just half pours. Great place to get a few beers and end with a coffee. (311 characters)

I visited this place for the first time during their 2nd Year Anniversary Party. The vibe was off the charts. Their beer was amazing. The service was great and the selection was special.

This place is highly recommended. (224 characters)

I received my first Modern Times beer as a throw in as part of a trade a year ago - been wanting to visit since.

Great place - really cool decor with the book bindings and various mosaics. Thoroughly enjoyed a flight of Black House, Nitro BH, Coconut BH, and Mega BH.

The merch was great - our group left with glassware, beer totes and a really cool hoody.

Lauren was wrong - Modern Times is great and a must-visit if you don't hate beer. (447 characters)
