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.

Admittedly, I like the Flavordome in North Park better from an aesthetic standpoint but this is the headquarters and they typically have a better selection. They offer about 20 beers on any given day, spanning a number of varieties. This location also hosts an awesome in-house coffee bar and a cool little merch/bottle pick-up nook.

The fact that MT is employee owned makes it THAT much cooler. Great beer, ethically sound and worth a trip to SD.
