Modern Times Proclaims These Bottles… FUUUUUUUUUNKY
(San Diego, CA) – Cool stuff: Modern Times Beer has three tasty beers that have been funkifying in bottles for several months now. Each month we’ve been cracking them open to see how they’re progressing, and we now proclaim them exceedingly awesome.
Two are variations on the same theme: Universal Friend, our saison that blurs the line between wine and beer. Both versions have been mingling with four different Brett strains and getting progressively earthier, more complex, and thunderously funky. The Pinot Grigio edition is dry, floral, nuanced, and a great match with almost any meal. The Pinot Noir edition is outrageously purple, with an intense grape-centric juiciness and layers of barnyard radness.
The final bottle is Mostly Brett Dancing Plague, a Berliner Weisee so-named because it’s given a careful initial kettle souring (with lactobacillus) followed by a lengthy fermentation with 12 different Brett strains. Tart through and through, it offers an earthy wheat character followed by notes of hibiscus, pineapple, and lemon zest.
Bottles go on sale today (10/13) at 10am via Brown Paper Tickets, and we’ll celebrate the first day of bottle pick-ups this Thursday at the Lomaland Fermentorium.
