Modern Times Releasing Firestone Walker Collaboration Heart Of The Universe & More

Modern Times Releasing Firestone Walker Collaboration Heart Of The Universe & MoreFrom Modern Times:

We have a glorious beer oasis in store for August's special release sale this Saturday at 10AM. On offer: outrageously tasty collab IPAs, delectable fruited funk, a deliciously nutty imperial dessert stout, and killer cold brew. The only thing not included in this welcomed reprieve from the heat is a giant palm frond with which to fan your bodacious bod.
More info on this stunningly tasty lineup--as well as the sale link--is below.
Let's dive on in:

HEART OF THE UNIVERSE IPA (COLLAB W/ FIRESTONE WALKER)
We joined forces with the beer-mages at Firestone Walker to summon this level-20 flavor beast from the most empyrean realms of dankness. Stacked with a blend of German & American hops including Mosaic, Calista, & Mandarina Bavaria and fermented with Firestone’s house yeast, this new-wave IPA sports bright, crisp notes of ripe citrus, tropical fruit, and candied peach.
ABV: 7.5%
Price: $19.50
Total Quantity: 3,437
4-Pack Limit: 18

STRATOS DIPA (COLLAB W/ ALVARADO STREET)
We teamed up with the beer ninjas over at Alvarado Street Brewery to cook up this massively flavorful hazy DIPA. Fermented with Sacc Trois and NEIPA yeast and dry-hopped with 4.5 lbs-per-barrel of Motueka & Mosaic, this beer emerged with big tangerine aroma and huge flavors of nectarine, accented by subtle tropical character.
ABV: 8.0%
Price: $21.50
Total Quantity: 3,437
4-Pack Limit: 18

SEA OF TRANQUILITY
This spectacle of refreshment is what happens when you ramp up a Berliner-style weisse to boss-level and pack it to the rafters with yumberries, cherries, and raspberries. And no, we didn’t make up “yumberries”; they’re totally a real thing. Prepare your body and mind for a tart, massively quaffable fruit fiesta that could not be better suited to summer diversions.
ABV: 6.5%
Price: $21.50
Total Quantity: 1,750
4-Pack Limit: 18

YELLOW (375 mL)
This consummately lovely beer is a part of Siren Craft Brew’s Rainbow Project, which pairs breweries from the U.K. with other brewers the world over to create beers inspired by colors of the rainbow. It’s a super rad project, and we’re incredibly stoked to both be part of it and to be paired with the excellent folks at Hawkshead Brewing. Together, we created a funky, red & white wine barrel-aged saison, fermented with wild yeast we cultured from local loganberries and racked onto 1800 pounds of fresh Katy apricots. It’s a fruity, complex, and unstoppably refreshing tribute to our designated color, and we couldn’t be more psyched for you to try it.
ABV: 7.5%
Price: $13.00
Total Quantity: 1,300
Bottle Limit: 6

DRUID HEIGHTS
This colossally delicious imperial stout was loaded with generous helpings of pistachios & coconut, yielding a beautiful amalgam of dessert flavors that will leave your taste-receptors awash in abundant joy. We named this utterly delightful beer for a rad 1950s-60s community of revolutionary thinkers and organic architecture; you should totally google it while you sip on this liquid tribute.
ABV: 11%
Price: $32.25
Total Quantity: 1,630
4-Pack Limit: 18

CONGO NORTH KIVU COLD BREW COFFEE
Hailing from the North Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of Congo, this natural-process coffee was grown between 1500-1800 meters by farmers for the Kawa Kabuya Cooperative. It’s seriously magical as a cold brew, with delightful notes of black cherries and chocolate wrapped in a smooth, silky mouthfeel.
Price (single 12 oz can): $5.00
Total Quantity: 5,000
No Limit

THE PROMETHEUS EFFECT (750 mL)
The newest iteration of the liquid marvel known as The Prometheus Effect is a blend of two saisons, both aged in the terracotta vessels for 10 weeks. After absorbing a gentle minerality and complex notes of lime peel and citrus, it was expertly racked into second-use wine barrels, where it happily resided for 3 more months. It’s a delightful marriage between progress and history that we think you’re really going to enjoy putting in your face.
Price: $17.25
Total Quantity: 372
Bottle Limit: 4
