    Hi All,

    I'm visiting a friend tomorrow in Towson and was hoping some of you could give me some recommendations where we could go out to eat. Just looking for reasonably priced food and a killer tap list. I'm doing a bit research on my own but would like some feedback. Thanks, Cheers

    As others have indicated, if you're looking for a killer tap list, you're pretty much SOL in Towson. Depending upon where you're going to be staying, it's really not a difficult drive to get over to Max's from there (just take I-83 into town, turn left on Pratt St., make a right onto Broadway, and you're there). Still, it's close to a half hour drive to get there from Towson, and depending upon what time you go, parking can be a chore around that part of Fells Point.

    Another possible option is Grand Cru over in Belvedere. GC is probably no more than a 10 or 15 minute drive from Towson, and you'll have no difficulty finding decent food there (GC has a limited, but decent menu... but they are located in an excellent food court, and they're completely OK with folks bringing food over from one of the other food purveyors in the market). The have a modest, but well selected tap list (7 or 8 craft/import options), as well as a sizeable bottle selection (they also sell beer and wine retail here). So if you don't want to deal with the drive and parking with Max's, then maybe consider GC as an alternative.

    All that aside, if finding a killer tap list is your primary focus, then screw GC, just drive a few more miles and minutes over to Max's and park yourself there. Have fun!

    Max's is the sh*t! You have to check it out. Another place that i enjoy when Max's gets too damn crowded is the Pratt Street Alehouse across from the convention center. Nowhere near as many beers, but they serve Oliver Ales which are English-inspired. Really good.
