A Taste of Modern Times

Stopped by the Modern Times Brewing Kickstarter Countdown Party at Toronado last night, and tasted several very yummy beers they brought to share with their supporters. We tried many fabulous sours sent over from their consultant, The Mad Fermentationist of DC. Can’t remember the names, but recall something like nectarine sour, black cherry, sour cherry […]


Alpine/New Belgium Super IPA

We made our way down to Toronado to taste this collaboration on tap at Toronado on Tuesday… Hoppier than hell! A hophead’s dream with a rich hoppiness like they boiled the hell out of the hops! A Super IPA it is! Would like to try it bottled soon.

Peach Love at Toronado

A New Belgium rep tapped a beautiful little oak firkin of Barrel – aged Peach Love at Toronado (ultra rare sour)… It was dee-lish!
