This is my #2 Atlanta-area brewpub. 5 Seasons has them beat in both food and beer, but that doesnít mean that Max Lagerís is lacking in either. The food is good, and more affordable than 5 Seasons and the beer is tasty as well. Max is also known to brew some interesting beers hard to find in the area like their Belgian-style Max Abbey. The downtown location looks a bit like an old firehouse or gutted factory and is really open. Rarely loud and a nice place for a beer and a meal.
