8/23/18 (San Diego, CA): Visit during Southern California swing, loved previous Modern Times offerings tried and definitely was not disappointed with this visit. Low key vibe, brewing in the back, nice bar and bottle / merchandise area, building has large garage door entrance. Somewhat creepy Micheal Jackson post it note rendition, but sat facing the opposite side.

Several different varieties on tap, Modern Times does a great job over multiple categories and the beers I tried and purchased this visit were excellent, with Deeds & Exploits the best pour at the brewery, Devil's Teeth Imperial BA Stout with Strawberry and Vanilla the best purchase brought back. Bartenders very friendly and knowledgeable, liked taking beer. Quality at this brewery excellent, on-site pours reasonably priced, to go beer a little pricey for the special releases but high quality. Many offerings available to go, nice merchandise as well. Very well worth the visit, will definitely return to this or perhaps one of the two other MT locations during my next trip to San Diego.

From our visit in May.
Great place for my wife and I to visit on a vacation to SD. Arrived on a Saturday, the place was hopping.. the beer hoppier. They had a great selection of beer, including our new favorite called Eye Spy . The prices were very good, as was the service. The Michael Jackson post-it note wall was ..different. Can't wait for a return trip.

If you love beer and are in San Diego you need to come here. The only reason the vibe isn't 5 is because the place is so busy. This is my current favorite craft beer and they have all your favorites in stock to try. Service is really good for such a busy place.

I firsts visited Modern Times Fermatorium in San Diego and enjoyed the vibe so much that I decided to visit their North Park Flavordome tap room and the Portland, OR Fermatorium. Each location I visited had interesting decor and relaxed atmosphere. There was a wide selection of beer styles ranging from stouts, porters, pilsners, west coast IPA, hazy IPA, and sours.

Definitely a craft beer and hipster crowd vibe. Went there on back to back nights (Sunday and Monday) and the place was busy on both nights. Having said that, you weren't rubbing elbows and there was plenty of space to move around. The place has great character, unique art and interesting decor. Nice layout also with the bar in the middle of the space (vessels behind the bar) and then tables, barrels and couches surrounding the bar. There's also a coffee shop off to the side and also an area where you can buy bottles & cans to-go.

The service was prompt and quick, even with the busy scene that I experienced. Selection was the highlight of this place. Tons of IPAs (NE and non-NE style), stouts, barrel aged stouts, sours, blonde ales, sours, etc... they definitely had something for everyone's preference, and the quality of beers within those styles was exceptional. I've had a few Modern Times beers from random cans I've tracked down or traded for, and they do no justice to the quality of brews that Modern Times has on draft at this location. I was blown away by the quality and selection.

Overall a really cool place with great beers on draft that I would look forward to visiting again if I happened to be in San Diego.

Stopped on a busy Sunday afternoon. In an industrial area - not much street parking. The tap room is just a section of their brewery, so warehouse vibe but they've added quirky decor to liven it up - one wall is wallpapers in comics, another wall is a mosiac made from sticky notes. There is the beer bar, and a coffee bar, and a merchandise/to-go counter. A ton of beers on tap, and organized into categories - but mostly hoppy beers, sours, and stouts. I had a DIPA and a coffee Export Stout that were both very good.

Large warehouse like building with huge service bar in center. About 16 assorted taps.. with some brewery only offering. A few 55gal drum tables and other makeshift accommodations. Very upbeat and friendly vibe.
