Modern Times Releases Two New Beers for Summer

Modern Times Beer announces the debut of two new limited-release offerings, Fruitlands Sangria Gose and Big Yikes Hazy Double IPA.

Fruitlands Sangria Gose (4.8% ABV) is a new variation on their popular year-round Sour Ale with grape, blackberry, black currant, orange, and lime. Its fruit-forward character is balanced by the acidity of Modern Times’ house souring process. Brimming with big fruit, a rich berry medley, and citrus aromas, Fruitlands Sangria is as impressive in appearance as it is in taste, pouring a beautiful shade of pink.

“Fruitlands Sangria is a refreshing summer beer, perfect for sitting at the beach,” said Rob Wyngard, VP of Operations. “Rounded off with the lime and orange flavor you’d get from a fresh citrus wedge on the lip of your glass, we’ve skipped the need for prep and given you the whole experience in one convenient can.”

Big Yikes Hazy Double IPA (8.5% ABV) is the second in Modern Times’ premium Double India Pale Ale series. Built from a simple malt bill of Two Row, Oat Malt, and Flaked Oats, this Hazy DIPA features experimental and innovative hop products resulting in huge tropical fruit, berry, and mango aromas.

“We dry-hopped Big Yikes with heaps of HBC 586, Citra Cryo, and Mosaic Cryo,” said Wyngard. “It’s delightfully drinkable and a veritable hop machine.”

Find Big Yikes and Fruitlands Sangria now on draft and in 4-pack 16oz cans at Modern Times taprooms in Point LomaNorth Park, and Encinitas, and coming soon to shelves at fine retailers.
