Modern Times is 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, and many 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 & roastery 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 and a restaurant and tap room in Encinitas, CA. A bit further down the line, we’ll be opening a restaurant in Santa Barbara, as well as a brewery/restaurant/cafe/swim club megaplex in downtown Anaheim. As of 2017, we became California’s very first employee-owned brewery, which is a fact we’re particularly proud of.
