In a nice part of town near the water but this place has nothing special atmospher wise, just a well worn pub feel. The beer selection, both on draft in in bottles is huge. I wish Iíd had more time to spend there ticking, but my friend was not feeling well so we bailed early. The place was pretty busy the evening I was there and service was not especially good. They do offer tasters, but the prices for them are pretty high, about half the price of a full pint. Iíd love to go back some time when I have more time to spend and maybe at a time of day when they are not so busy.

Visited 04/02/15. Cool location near the water in downtown Baltimore. The bar itself really isnít much to look at. Itís a busy wood-paneled place that prioritizes functionality over style or atmosphere. The bathrooms look like something youíd find in county lock-up. However, the beer selection more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. The tap list was as large as it was impressive. I was so consumed by the draft choices that I didnít pay much attention to the expansive number of bottles available. I settled on a Mikkeller offering I had never seen before and was pleasantly surprised by the price. I also appreciated that all beers are available as tasters. Service was quick and professional. Overall, a really impressive spot that deserves the acclaim it receives.

Maxís has a comfortable ílived-iní feel to the pub. Staff were welcoming on my 2 visits. The tap selection as noted is pretty crazy and Iíd be surprised if anyone couldnít find a beer worth drinking on that list! Heaps of bottles that can be purchased to drink in, and takeway. I enjoyed some relaxing beers when it wasnít too busy but I can imagine it could be very different during the madness of weekends and festivals here. Cool location on a bustling street down by the waterfront. One of the better beer bars Stateside for sure.

Finally made the trip to check this place out. Parking is a little steep at the nearby parking decks but thatís Baltimore. We went early on a Saturday so no crowds, very long spacious bar and long table seating in the Baltimore/Maryland themed place. We were given a paper beer menu of the insane number of taps offered (80íish+ that day) and a short menu of bar food. Beer was excellent, food was decent and service was awesome and entertaining. Plenty of TVs to watch some of the Terps game that afternoon. In short worth a trip once if only to snag a very limited beer release or a hard to find import. I can only imagine how busy Maxs is at night, it was getting pretty full even in the early afternoon.

Large bar with plenty of seating that was open either behind a long bar or near it. A few bottles coolers littered with assorted awesome beer and a tap list that was without question phenomenal. They were just coming off a Belgian fest so many of the beers were Belgian or Belgian style. Service was quick and knowledgable but not necessarily super friendly. Got the impression that itís a locals bar and thatís the way they like it. Staff were having long conversations with various regulars. Nothing wrong with that, just isnít the greatest experience when you arenít one of the regulars. I had a shrimp quesadilla which I expected to be sub par for some reason but actually was fantastic. Overall a good bar

This is great bar as far as the quantity and quality of beer goes. Thereís not much to say good or bad on the atmosphere, and honestly, there isnít much to say about this place that hasnít been said already. It is a must stop when in Baltimore.

Visited to have a few beers while in the area and they do not disappoint. Extensive draft selection with great choices -- main limitation is most likely because of Maryland. Bar service was great -- very prompt and helpful. Pricing is fair for the area and the ambiance is appropriate for a good beer bar.
