Modern Times.

Modern Times Primary focus is aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, session-ish beers. They often brew hybrid styles, combining the features they like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.

They premiered their brand in the seattle market recently, and will launch in the South Sound within the next few weeks.
