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.

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.

Located in the heart of San Diego. Parking is a nightmare. Very hipster inside, with its own bagel & coffee stand. It's pretty cool inside with the comic book wall, but I'm not sure if I could spend all day hanging out here. All their glasses and shirts were over priced and they didn't have a growler with their logo which sucked, because I collect them. Cool spot if you're in the area, but wouldn't come out of my way to get here.
