I've been liking the Modern Times beers a lot when they show up on draft, so I didn't want to miss the opening of their tasting room. They say they will be open 12 pm to 9 pm every day. If you can find the Sports Arena, it's just to the northeast on a street you never knew was there.

They had ten taps going, and probably they have room for a few more. The mix of styles is quite interesting, and they don't like to just go with the standard generic reds, blacks, and blondes. Even the Pale Ale has Nelson Sauvin hops, and they call their really hoppy beer (Blazing World) an Amber rather than an IPA. Two Saisons in the mix as well. Nice pint tulips to drink out of. Both 32 oz and 64 oz growlers are sold.

The place is enormous, with high ceilings, bare everything. It's almost, but not quite as big as Mission. The brewing area in the back is vast, with room to expand about six times beyond their substantial start-up plant. In front is big, plain bar area that wraps around the serving station. The rest of the drinking area just has a few scattered tables and kegs. The gigantic mosaic-like mural is the one decoration. Service was right there, even with the crowd.

The location is actually way more convenient for San Diego-dwellers than the other industrial park breweries out on the distant mesas. You could even walk the several blocks here from the Old Town trolley and train station. Just look for the strip joints on Rosecrans.

Love this place. Friendly, comfortable place to hang out. Had Black House on Nitro and Cask. Lots of choices! Very casual atmosphere were you'll be welcomed and made to feel at home. Great decor! Can't wait to get down there again.

One of the more unique brewpubs I've seen so far. Well worth a visit just to see the place and great beer to go with it!
