Modern Times Blam! Blam! Can Release
Modern Times has announced their next limited release hazy IPA can, this time it will be Blam! Blam! IPA, their collaboration with New Zealand’s Garage Project from earlier in 2016. The Modern Times Blam! Blam! can release will be the first of their limited can releases that is a collaboration between Modern Times and another brewery, with all of the previous releases being developed and brewed solely by Modern Times.
Blam! Blam! is a juicy hop bomb, packed with Nelson, Amarillo, and whole cone Denali hops. According to Modern Times (and our own taste test when it was on draft earlier this year), this beer is extremely aromatic, with layers of fruity hops.
Modern Times announced further details about the release via their email list on November 7th. As with previous releases, Blam! Blam! Will be an online sale through Brown Paper Tickets and will be sold alongside barrel aged stouts and a barrel aged sour. The sale will take place on Monday November 14th at 10AM on BPT.
The beers being released on 11/14 will be:
BLAM! BLAM! IPA (4-Pack of 16oz Cans)

SYMMETRIC ORCHESTRA WITH PASSION FRUIT & MANGO (750ml)
Symmetric Orchestra is an otherworldly sour beer fermented with over a dozen strains of Brettanomyces and aged on oak. After a careful kettle souring, this beer mingled with a veritable United Nations of funky cultures and wood until sufficient awesomeness had been achieved. We then added a boatload of mangos and passion fruit to the mix, yielding a beer that’s sour, deeply funky and exploding with tropical magic that carries through to a lingering, oaky finish. Drink it, and be excellent to each other.
Price: $22+tax & BPT fee
DEVIL’S TEETH AGED IN QUADRUPLE FLOWERS BARRELS (22oz)
Devils Teeth is a hybrid of an Old Ale and an Imperial Stout, two English beer styles designed to withstand long voyages and dark winters. It brings rich maltiness & robust roastiness in a thick, tongue-coating, aggressively flavorful package. We let this batch luxuriate for over a year in fragrant, oaky barrels which had recently housed a legendary single-barrel bourbon. The resulting beer is enormously tasty, with an earthiness complemented by assertive notes of rich chocolate.
Price: $28+tax & BPT fee
MONSTERS’ PARK AGED IN X.M. SCHMELLER BARRELS (22oz)
This is Monsters’ Park, our hulking, cantankerous imperial stout, aged in fragrant, oaky bourbon barrels which formerly contained a highly sought-after wheated bourbon. The barrel character is immediately evident on the nose and only grows more intense in the flavor. Notes of honey and intense coconut meld beautifully with the huge roast character of the beer and wrap up with an unbelievably smooth, chocolaty finish.
Price: $28+tax & BPT fee
MONSTERS’ PARK AGED IN TENNESSEE WHISKEY BARRELS WITH ORANGE ZEST, COFFEE, & COCOA NIBS (22oz)
We aged this batch for over a year in smooth, tasty Tennessee whiskey barrels with coffee, orange zest, & cocoa nibs. Big, thunderous notes of our house-roasted Black House Blend coffee, chocolate, & oranges add a crazy dimension to this sledgehammer of sabor, combining with beautiful notes of bourbon and roasty awesomeness to create a wildly complex & delicious beer.
Price: $30+tax & BPT fee
A good point to remember is that Modern Times does not allow proxies, so whoever is purchasing the beer is the same person who has to pick it up at Modern Times. They also do not ship these beers, so the only option is to pick them up in person at the Modern Times Fermentorium in San Diego.
Many of their past limited releases have sold out quickly, so be sure to check out Brown Paper Tickets as soon as the release begins. The link to the sale has not yet been made public, but we will post it as soon as it is posted by Modern Times.
