Drove up here from College Park, Maryland because it was the top rated place in the state. And yes, they have 140 taps. The beer list looked longer than a sushi menu. This is one of the few places I have failed to try every new beer on tap for me. This was in part because everything was kind of expensive, though. Tasters are priced at around half of what a full pour goes for, and this adds up fast. I had about 13 tastes and a (delicious!) sandwich, and paid about $60. I could not afford to do that 3 more times. Service was solid, very friendly and professional. Cool looking place, pretty spacious, long bar, with a pub-like feel to it. Driving through Baltimore to get to the location was hell. Found free parking in a residential area a few blocks away (had to move the car every 2 hours though). A pretty impressive place overall, but my wallet was crying as I left. Also, driving through Baltimore is just awful.

Been here a few times at the bar and have always had a great time. Two floors though Iíve only sat at the bar on the main floor. Tables around and service is all through the bar. Always been able to snag a seat even when itís a bit busier, though I havenít been around when itís super busy. Service has always been great, bartenders are great at coming by when they see my beer getting low without me needing to get their attention. Lots of varied drafts and happy hour specials on 32 oz beers. Havenít looked at the bottle list but looked like a nice selection from the coolers. Only (very) minor gripe is most beers are served in standard pint glasses. Think they do taster pours though itís not advertised on the list so Iíve never thought to ask. Food is good and ranges from average to great, mostly your normal pub fare. Definitely be back when Iím around, probably my favorite bar in Baltimore.

Visited on a trip to Baltimore. Located close to the waterfront a Baltimore staple. A beer bar that carries one of the largest selection of beers Iíve ever seen, something like 1,300. The tap list itself is off the charts. There is always something to find to drink for any craft beer nerd. The prices were great and in a nice location close to the waterfront. Overall, a place you have to visit at some point to just take the number of beers they have available. The service is always great making it worth the effort as well.

Maxís is one of the best beer bars in the U.S., period. It took me a few visits to get used to the pub style service, but I now embrace it wholeheartedly. The taps are fresh and change often, and they rotate 4 - 6 cask beers through their hand pumps. The staff are super friendly and helpful as well as beer knowledgeable, though the place can get very crowded and make it hard to get prompt service. The food is standard pub fare or you can bring in your own food, from home or another establishment (and there are quite a few within a two-block radius. The atmosphere is super laid back though it can get really packed on the weekends or during Baltimore sporting events, special pub events; Halloween is crazy in Fells Point, and Maxís decorates nicely for the festivities. This is a must-stop if you are in Baltimore.

Only been here twice and both times it was crowded. Usually thatís not my thing, but the atmosphere and selection are way too amazing to ignore. Draft list is impressive; the bottle list even more so. I wish there was a place like this closer to me. Very highly recommended.

Visited here while at a conference. Holy cow. This place is amazing. Food was pretty good, but the beer selection is just out of this world. The bartenders knew their stuff and even with all those taps got me my beers very quickly. I had about 10 sample pours (5 oz). Everything was just fantastic. Canít wait to go back tomorrow night.

Great sports bar with a craft beer selection that will keep you busy all day. Nice atmosphere over in Fells Point. Fun place to watch a game.

From what I can tell, this is the "destination" beer spot in Baltimore. Lots of great draft options. Almost too many; I can imagine old beers being an issue, however I didnít have anything that seemed off when I visited. Went on a Saturday afternoon, and it was pretty busy. Itís in the bar district, so I imagine that itís rare to find the place dead at any time of the day. Everything seemed very well priced, and you can get flight-sized samples. Great place.
