Visited on a Wednesday for lunch. Sat at the bar. It was slow so great service. Was able to talk with all the bartenders and mangers et. al. Good insight to bar and beer business.

Vibe – Looks, feels and smells like a BEER bar. Definitely not pretentious. A Baltimore feel. Working class. Based on some discussions with the staff sounds like it gets quite crazy some nights. Rest rooms need some work for those who might be a little picky. Probably not a place to take your kids unless it’s off hours. 4.5

Quality – They clean all taps at the same time every two weeks. Say no more. 4.5

Service – Food was delivered quickly. Bartender was attentive and friendly. Knowledgeable and ready to give a recommendation (I asked about which of the Flying Dog cask options I should choose for my last beer.) 4.0

Selection – 60+ taps. An excellent selection. Something for everyone. Terrapin wake n bake barrel aged on tap. Also had a Flying Dog Doggie Style dry hopped citra cask. A couple hundred bottles in coolers. - 4.75

Food – Good bar food. Not sure I need any more than that. Had the Black n Blue burger. Nicely cooked. Moist. Tasty. Good fries. 4.25

Price – $$ - Good prices. Lots of happy hours and specials - 4.5

Had lunch here about a month back on a Friday around 11am. We were taking in an O's game around 1:30, so we had some time to spare.
Took a couple of rounds for the bartender to warm up to us, but he eventually started really recommending good stuff. Can't remember the guys name, but he said he is usually a manager and just filling in today at the bar.
We ordered around 20 small pours in addition to lunch. The draft selection was top notch. Got to try a lot of stuff that I've never had before, and I get the impression that selection changes often. Lunch was decent, but certainly nothing to write home about. I had the salmon wrap which was fairly tasty.
The place was absolutely dead when we arrived, and there were only a few other parties at the bar when we left. I'd go back to this place in a heartbeat. Wish I could have made their rare bottle sale.

Max's is a craft beer lovers dream. The selection is unparalleled in MD and could go head to head with anyone in the county. The staff is friendly and knowledgable and quick to offer help in your selection. The prices I have always found to be fair and even during beer events any beer can be served in a sample size.

This really needs to be a destination if you want to drink good beer and have a nice time. The food is ok (its bar food) but there are some gems on the menu like the Drunken Monkey Wings.
