Modern Times Mega Black House is the newest special release by the San Diego, California based brewery.
The base beer is the brewery’s year-round oatmeal coffee stout (Black House), amped up to an imperial level. Modern Times Mega Black House features a “preposterous” amount of coffee when compared to the year-round version, weighing in at 10% alcohol by volume.
This imperialized version of our celebrated Black House is loaded up with preposterous amounts of house-roasted coffee, which is a heavenly match for the huge, chewy malt profile underneath. This beer is best enjoyed in sips, with ample time to experience its beautiful, evolving complexity, and ample room to gesticulate wildly with pleasure.
Modern Times Mega Black House is available now in 22 ounce bottles in both taprooms and distribution.

Modern Times Beer (San Diego, CA) is releasing two rare bottles in honor of their second anniversary.
The brewery was “hooked up” with some special barrels – namely 12 year old single barrel Elijah Craig, and 10 Year Four Roses barrels. Modern Times filled the barrels with Monster’s Park Imperial Stout, and waited.
The result: 336 bottles of 10 Year Four Roses, and 155 bottles of 12 year Elijah Craig. On sale for $28 and $30 dollars each.
First come, first serve at the booth during the brewery’s celebration, on Saturday, July 11th. [TICKETS]
Note: The retailer who has not been disclosed by Modern Times will also have a small allotment of these rare bottles to sell. You want a bottle? Find this retailer.
Modern Times Mount Remarkable marks the brewery’s first bottled lager. The 5% alcohol by volume “crusher” is brewed Australian Helga and Ella hops.

Modern Times Mount Remarkable will be available in 22oz bottles throughout southern California by the end of April. On tap in the tasting room starting this week.
Hops: Helga, Ella
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft
