…an intrepid cadre of brewers, coffee roasters, and culinary wizards that began as a 30bbl production brewery and tasting room in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego. Modern Times is named after a beautifully crazy utopian community founded in 1850 (see “Modern Times was..” for the full explanation), and (almost) all of our beers are named after real utopian experiments or mythological utopias.
Today, we’re distributed throughout Southern California, Arizona, Nevada, and the Pacific Northwest. In addition to our flagship brewery in Point Loma, we now have brewery/restaurant locations in Los Angeles & Portland, as well as a tasting room in San Diego’s North Park neighborhood. A bit further down the line, we’ll be opening restaurants in Santa Barbara and Encinitas, as well as a brewery/restaurant/cafe/swim club megaplex in downtown Anaheim. As of 2017, we’re also California’s very first employee-owned brewery, which is a fact we’re particularly proud of.
We brewed our first batch on May 18th, 2013; our beer went on tap for the first time on June 24th 2013; and we held the soft opening for the Lomaland Fermentorium tasting room on August 9th, 2013; and our Grand Opening was September 7th, 2013.
