Reparations Beer

on Apr 20,2021 - 0 Comments -

At Modern Times, we have a motto: Be excellent to each other. This deceptively simple phrase embodies the core values that this company was built on, and in recent times, it means listening, learning, and doing the work. We deeply believe that there is a desperate need for real, meaningful equity for America's oppressed populations, and we continue to work toward increasing our involvement in the critical areas of racial and social justice. On Saturday, Reparations--a nuanced and exorbitantly delicious imperial stout with vanilla, coffee, and ginger that will benefit an outrageously deserving cause--will be up for grabs at 10AM in the online presale.

on Apr 16,2021 - 0 Comments -

This is the glorious tale of one of the original pillars of dankness on which the Modern Times Multi-verse was built. It’s been a staple in our year-round lineup since 2013; a tried and true bastion of resiny goodness that has melted the brains of beer enthusiasts far and wide. Though its 8-year reign is drawing to an end, Blazing World will be fondly remembered as a unique beer, an amber beauty, a supremely-quenching refreshment, and all-around super solid choice.

There’s a whole bunch of deliciousness that falls under the April Part 1 umbrella, but what we’re most stoked about is a pair of impossibly tasty, extra crispy lagers. To say they are the cat’s pajamas would be a gross understatement...dare we say that they’re the new pizza? We totally do.

It’s nearly presale o’clock, which means an array of stupendously tasty new delights will be up for grabs online Saturday morning at 10AM. It also means that it’s officially time to grab a beverage and settle in for our special release highlight. While this particular drop is a truly astounding, borderline overwhelming dreamscape of potable deliciousness, we’re focusing our collective gaze to a Leisuretown-born work of stout-craft, Silence of Light—and what a beauty it is.

Welcome to the February Part 1 special release beer highlight. Feel free to grab something tasty to sip on and settle in somewhere comfy, because we’re about to dive into one of our most versatile--and beloved--masters of funk, Singular Rhythms. This time around, we loaded this delightfully complex sour with citron black tea and grilled lemons, and to say that it’s preposterously delicious would be a gross understatement, so prepare to unravel this flavor tapestry, thread by thread.

Salutations, friends. As time soldiers on, we find ourselves on the verge of witnessing another wave of special release miracles—but moving forward, these writeups will be more highlights than rundowns; we’ll be honing in on some truly delicious standouts from each presale. If you enjoy seeing the full lineup all in one place, don’t worry; we’ll still be including the whole shebang in our email newsletters, which you can sign up for by clicking on that nifty little envelope next to our logo at the top of this page. That being said, January Part 2 truly covers all the flavor bases; decadent, fruity, funky, and crispy. We’ve opted to highlight two beers from opposite ends of that spectrum to give you all an idea of the scope of deliciousness of this drop. Hold on to your hats.
