Limited selection of basic house beers. Their IPA was passable. I drank Founders Centennial instead. Probably worth a return visit for a few new GA beers, I tend to stay in Atlanta for 5-6 night stretches... beer selection is pretty good for the CBD wasteland of downtown.

Urban/industrial vibe, high ceilings, lots of metal. Lacking coziness but a decent pit stop.

Big place, felt okay in there but it was a little dead. The beers - one was all right but the other was a butter bomb. Thatís not cool. Service was good.

I was not expecting much from Max Lagers at all and my expectations were lowered when I was greeted with a very strong soured grain aroma upon entering the building. I must say in all fairness, the beers I had were pretty darn good. The atmosphere is open and factory-esque with two or three stories and brick walls. The place wasnít too crowded at 5 pm on a Friday. Service was good. The menu had mostly entrees and pizzas, it seemed a step closer to finer dining than the average pub. I had a good time sitting at the bar and I will most likely come back.

Visited just after dinner on a Tuesday. Easy enough to find in central Atlanta, though parking was a bit of a challenge to find. I ended up in the pay lot behind the building. The restaurant and brewery are in a nicely renovated old brick building, with the copper brewery front and center as you enter. Bigger bar in front, with restaurant tables throughout the main floor. Upstairs is another bar, which was being used for a function. There is a small patio out back. 6 Max beers on, along with a decent size and quality bottle list. The crowd was Mostly out of towners and the service was efficient and friendly. The beer I had was solid, and I enjoyed my visit.
70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Reasonable pub in mid-town touristy area. Beer was so-so, and bartender, though just after luchtime, had no ideas of the beer. But staff was friendly, and young and assertive. They spend time of the hard stuff and wine, and from what I understand, the restaurant. Reasonable prices for the location. Interesting that they tried a barleywine, but they aim to not offend, as apposed to experimenting here. A bit of room, but felt crowded, even though the place was empty, compared to the Pub Store and 5 Seasons, and even Rock Bottom.

Well located from the business hotels area. Big old casern-like building. Inside is nice, very open, high-ceilings, lots of bricks, lots of wood. A few large tv screens on sports channels but not too intrusive. They had 7 home beers on tap and a not so exciting list of about 50 bottles. I had an imperial stout that is not on ratebeer yet and it was actually pretty good. As usual the girlfriend went for the pils. I took a sip and thought it was a very poor example of the style. So based on my limited experience Iíd say the beer can be hit or miss. Food has some greasy pub fare but also a pizza speciality and expensive steaks and such. We ate there and I was pleased with my relatively cheap meal. Bottom line, this is a place worth visiting if you want a good pizza and a beer. I wouldnít spend more than one hour there since it had a basic restaurant atmosphere and on a lucky day I donít think Iíd find more than two interesting homebrews.

Pretty nice place in Atlanta. Good bottle list and 6 of their own beers. The wings are really good. Service was attentive.

Visited here in October í05. Much more of an urban feel to the place than their counterpart out in the burbs at the Georgia Mall. Only had about five on tap and the barkeep did not seem to know much about them. Food was serviceable, Has a pool table and plenty of floor space upstairs. Not worth going out of your way for - but if in the downtown ATL - drop on by.
