We went back to Modern Brewery during St. Louis’s Craft Beer Week. Mostly because we we’re headed to this BBQ event at 2nd Shift which was packed with people to the point both my husband and I got a little zap of anxiety and decided to retrace our steps, since we passed Modern on our way to 2nd Shift.
Also, my husband is still (sadly) allergic to cats, so I was already apprehensive about 2nd Shift since they have a few brewery cats running around.
And because of this, I can say with certainty Modern is just not my jam. This time around, I got the special release Birdman APA and my husband went with the Modern Man lager. Don’t get me wrong, Modern was packed with people. Their beer is clearly good.
I just don’t like it. Neither does my husband. And that’s okay. Saint Louis is full of great craft beers. There is more than enough for everyone to find something they love.
If anything, I’m a little thankful there’s one less place to choose from next time we’re discussing which brewery to visit. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check it out for yourself when you get the chance!
