    My favorite Baltimore bar! Unreal tap list that constantly rotates. Atmosphere is warm and inviting with two floors. The type of bar where people actually sit and have a conversation.

    The Belgian Beer fest that is held at Max's during February is a great way to sample new beers, and meet new friends.

    Order beer AND food directly from the bartender. One of the best craft beer selections around. Decent food, but this place is all about the stuff in kegs, bottles, cans and casks. Cheers!
