Vibe - Industrial cool. The tanks and the seating area share a large, open space.

Quality - Good.

Service - Pleasant enough.

Selection - Good. No guest beers.

I realize that Modern Times was on the front-end of the San Diego beer explosion. This probably explains the horrible location (bad part of town/no parking). The place is cool. Getting there takes some effort, though.

This is in a business park area but the space is amazing. They put a lot of thought into decorating the space and I appreciate it. Beer selection was great with taps not available in bottles. Reasonable growler fill prices. Even the glass wear was unique.

Not to mention...they roast their own coffee, and sometimes put it in their beer. This is the only brewery I have been to where you can bring home beer and beans!

A very cool brewery with a great vibe. They may not have a ton of stuff on tap at all times, but rest assured, you'll find something that hits the spot. Can get super packed at times, but they keep the beer flowing pretty quickly.

Modern Times near Old Town had an eclectic vibe inside. I stayed at a newly refurbished hotel in the area and was only a couple blocks away, so it was a no-brainer to visit during my trip. The area wasn't the greatest at night, but inside was transformed into a place from another time. It had this Broadway feel to it, a story from years gone by with the lighting, books along the wall. It's an expansive area, with large tanks in the back visible from the seating area. The vibe is just fantastic.

Modern Times produces solid beers. I had small glasses of 4 beers. I must say I liked the Apricot gose the best.

Very nice place. Good beer. Good times.

Awesome place! Lots of unique places to sit, very large space so you won't feel crammed in. Beer is very high quality. Walls decorated with comic books on one side and a post-it mural on the other side, very cool.

Was there two nights last week and both were relatively busy so service was a tad slow but nothing that would cause me to not go back. Location is ideal, right near downtown (easily accessible by cab or Uber).

I really dig Modern Times. They seem to make everyone from tragic hipster to seasoned BA feel welcome. They typically have from 10-12 beers on. There stouts are solid to great - I especially liked The unique approach to City of the Dead. IPAs were solid as well with the new Orderville a standout. Only disappointment was the lack of sours when I stopped by. Their coffee Roastery is on site as well so I drug some home as well. Great spot in this beer Mecca.

If all the breweries I visited in SD this was my favorite. Ended up going there twice in a five day period just because it was so awesome. They had monsters park with coconut and cocoa on tap, it was amazing!
