Add region modifier class to menu

I asked this in the DrupalTwig slack channel a couple days ago:

I’m trying to figure out how to allow for different menu styles depending upon which region a menu is placed in. Has anyone run into this issue?

I already have my 3 menu markup/styles in PatternLab and I just need to figure out how to do the Drupal side

Here’s what I came up with to resolve my issue. It is definitely far from flawless. I will try to continue to improve it, but here it is for now. Please let me know if you have a better way to add a modifier class to menus based upon the region they are placed in.

function hook_preprocess_block(&$variables, $hook) {
  $block_id = $variables['elements']['#id'];
  $block = \Drupal\block\Entity\Block::load($block_id);

  if (strpos($block->getPluginId(), 'system_menu_block') !== FALSE) {
    $variables['content']['#attributes']['class'] = "menu--" . str_replace('_', '-', $block->getRegion());

It would be much more ideal to have a region variable in menu.html.twig.
