Max's is great. It rotates about 60+ taps and often has special events such as "Belgina Beer Fest" and "American Beer Fest", which means lots of great shit including casks.

The beer is always served in appropriate glassware and is usually a good pour. The staff works like crazy to get everyone their drink fast.

For a bar in Baltimore, Max's is very big, but the fact that it's always full during peak hours is a bit of a turn off (especially the fucks that go to a beer bar and order Miller Light).

However, the music is always WAAAY too loud. Conversations are nearly impossible.

Great place, nice vibe and great bartenders, but sub-par food keeps it from getting 5s across the board.

Great atmosphere to have a drink and watch a game. Plenty of space which is rare for pub in Fells Point. You feel a real sense of community and belonging.

The exceptional level of beer served up cannot be denied, will not be denied. The service on the other hand does range from on point to conjuring up the scene from the Seinfeld episode "Soup Nazi". Depending on the bartender/server, just know what you want and ask no questions. Sure, you could blame this on how ridiculously busy they can get, seeing as they are in the heart of Fell's Point and are pouring the best beers town. The reality is however, after numerous visits with different groups, we still have had questionable service at times and it just is what it is. Would I go back? You betcha.

Amazing selection of beers, best place in MD imo. If possible be sure to attend the legendary Belgian beer weekend in February, one of the greatest events in the DMV area. Constantly changing beer list, never know what you may find.
