Stopped in for two beers on the way to the airport.

64 beers on tap with the only ones I wouldn't consider being Bud, Guiness, and Woodchuck. Everything else, I would call world class.

Ellezelloise Hercule Stout on draft? Lots of other Belgians, probably 2/3 of the menu devoted to Belgians. Cazeau, Contreras, De Dochter, De Regenboog, Lefebvre all had multiple offerings on the list.

We went with Burton Baton and oak aged Ten Fidy. Three chalices of Burten Baton came in at $24 (and this was around 2:30 on a Tuesday.

A spectacular bottle list that included the first time I've seen a focus on vintage offerings. Anchor 1.5 liter holiday back to '95 ($70) and SN Bigfoot back to '99 ($20).

I'm sure that if a beer is available in Maryland, Max's has or had it. (773 characters)

In Baltimore, it's Maxs... Then everywhere else. Without a doubt the largest craft beer selection. As others have said, the food is okay. But if you're looking for the largest selection of beer around, Maxs is your place. (221 characters)

V- cool atmosphere. Pub style where you kinda seat yourself.
Q- this is a MUST to visit for beer advocates like myself.
S- excellent service, our bartender knew his stuff and some great recommendations for us. He gave us 2 free bombers upon leaving.
S- over 100 tap selections and great bottles, many not able to get without trading. I was able to get Jester King and Grimm.
F- typical bar food but it was unique and excellent. Suggest the drunken wings marinaded in Guiness stout. The wifey had the mussels which were excellent. (530 characters)

When it comes to beer selection and quality, you really can't beat this place in Baltimore. A boatload of different beers on tap, and a huge bottle list. Only knock on this place is that because it's so good, it is always packed and some times hard to get the attention of the bartenders. Food is pretty slammin' too, though there are better places in Baltimore for food obviously. (384 characters)

The beer selection is awesome. The fests they have especially Belgian Beerfest are awesome. The bartenders are awesome. I just wish the food was awesome. It is your standard barfare. (186 characters)

I live in the Pittsburgh area so this is not a regular stop for me. This was my second visit to Max's. Went last year (2014) for the Belgian Beer Festival and enjoyed it so much made a return visit for the 2015 Festival. Found the entire staff to be extremely friendly, especially notable considering the huge crowds they bring in for the festival. Really enjoy the atmosphere, located in a great area (Fell's Point). Can't wait for next year's event though I would really like to come back when the crowds are not as massive. Definitely worth the trip. (559 characters)

Great place, nice vibe and great bartenders, but sub-par food keeps it from getting 5s across the board. (104 characters)
