April 17, 2013 Review:
I just revisited this place, and I thought my review could use an update for sure. First off, the draft list was significantly more interesting. The bartender that I had was excellent. The food was a bit slow (they were very crowded due to a convention being in town), but it was very good. Lastly, but certainly importantly, the beers were all tasty. I had the IPA, Black IPA, and Vienna, and I found all of them to be solid or better, which differs quite a bit from my original review. They also had a solid selection of other beers in bottles. Iím glad I revisited this place.

Thought this place was mediocre. The lay-out was that typical industrial look you see in many brewpubs. Our server was pretty good, we split a few apps and a pizza. The pizza was solid, the chicken tenders not so good.
As for the beer: They had 4 on tap when I was there (pretty weak selection if you ask me) - APA, Lager, Brown, and Stout. Beers were OK, but not worth going from too far away. Our hotel was 2 blocks away, Iíd say it was worth that walk, but not much more!

Parking is a pistol but it is worth it. Food was good. We had a salad and pizza it was top notch. Beer selection was nice as well.

Visited while attending a convention. Good downtown location. Decent prices. All of their brews were pretty average. Worth stopping by.

Found this place by accident in downtown Atlanta, and I loved it immediately. Nice buzzy atmosphere (certainly during lunch) Very good and decent food. Nice own brewed beers and a large selection of demestic, special and imported beers.If you are in Atlanta, a place to must visit.

Every seven years or so, Iím at a convention in Atlanta and itís a treat to hit Max Lagers for decent brews near the big hotels. A pleasant environment, conventional brewpub with mahogany and copper tanks, two floors and plenty of seating. Food is above average for this sort of place, even if well short of gastropub fare. And the beer menu is nice too, with plenty of domestic craft in bottles and on tap, in addition to the solid offerings brewed on site. Over the several days of conference madness, I ended up here three different times with different folks and enjoyed it each time (ended up getting a good sampling of the brews as well). Friendly, inviting, a good place.

This place is so frustrating. They could really catch a crowd if they just focused a bit more on their beer. Honestly, I think if they forced the brewer to attend a brewing school, you could really have something special. I went with my brother and sister-in-law. The food was pretty good. Some of their food is expensive, and well worth it, but some of their other stuff, not so much. I love the fact that they have their own house brews. They really could give 5 Seasons a run for their money if they just tweaked some of their damn recipes. The service was pretty good, but nothing mind-blowing. Overall, give this place a chance. They seem to want to be a great place to go to, but they just need the proper manager to guide them in the right direction.

Went for lunch when I was at a conference. Was able to sample some of their beers, but I was the only man the bartender had to wait on, and it took me about 50 minutes to get my food. They were a bit busy, but the service was a bit lacking. The beer was pretty good, and the food was tasty, at downtown prices. Would go back to hang out, or if I had a bit more time.

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.
