Max`s Taphouse on S. Broadway in Baltimore is most certainly the best beer bar in the city. I recall about 30 beers on tap. In addition, they have a wide variety in bottles, say another 40-50. Their tap selection included offerings from Southern Tier, Cantillon, Corsedonk, Fullers, McChouffe, etc. The bottle selection is similar variety of american craft beer, belgians, and other great selections from abroad. Their prices are fair and the crowds can swell on the weekend evenings. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable in their offerings. Would go back to gain in a heartbeat when I make it to Baltimore again.

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.
