Modern Times Lomaland Fermentorium
A brewery that cranks out their standards (Blazing World, Fortunate Islands, Black House, and Lomaland), seasonal selections, and special releases, all of which are served up in their sweet tap room complete with a wall-sized mural of Michael Jackson and his monkey, Bubbles, made out of Post-it Notes.
Modern Times has turned the brewing world upside down since its inception. Simply put, they don’t make any bad beers. With a cheeky, fun-above-all mindset highlighted by their membership-based League of Partygoers and Elegant People, the brewery specializes in session beers like Dortmunder Export Lager, Astromancer Marzen, and specialty coffee-flavored releases that capitalize on their in-house coffee roasting. The Midway location has become a destination for beer and coffee lovers alike, while the Encinitas lounge boasts an outstanding vegan menu. Tap lists and hours of operation vary, so check your location’s website before heading out.
