3fourths (1537) Boulder, Colorado | February 21, 2014| Updated February 23, 2014
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
