This place was great. They had around 60 taps there and who knows how many bottles. I stopped by twice on a recent trip to Baltimore. On Saturday night it was very crowded and was difficult to get service. The bathroom was in a cigar bar beside Maxs so you smelled terrible when you went to take a leak. Went on Sunday and it was much more enjoyable. Not that crowded and they were not playing extremely loud muusic. Had alot of Stone, Dogfish Head, Thristy Dog, local stuff, and a rediculous amount of belgian beers. If you at Fells Point, you need to drop by. Also if you take the water taxi you get a coupon for a buy one get one free coupon.

The place was packed with beer geeks on a Thursday night, of course there was a convention of us in town. Old wooden bar spanning most of the right wall of the place. Tables to the left and in back. Huge tap list and I hear the bottle list is even better, but I never got past the taps. bomb! and parabola on tap and a hundred of their friends. I had a chicken sandwich that was messy but tasty. Service was pretty good for how busy it was. It is a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for I guess. Iíd go back in a heartbeat.

So I read the review from the gentleman that visited Aug 1/2015 and thought it has been 6 months so maybe things have changed on minors being allowed in so I called, long distance, from Canada and the lady that answered the phone told me that kids were allowed in up till 5 pm. So on Sat Mar 12/2016 my kids and I took the long 1.7 mile walk from our hotel to Maxís. When we got there the 2 guys at the door told me "no kids allowed". I proceeded to tell them that I had read a review that said this and that is why I called before I wasted my time walking all the way there and was told kids were allowed up till 5 pm. They looked confused so they handed me off to the manager who told me the same thing. I explained to him that I called and was told different. He then told me that there was a special St. Patrickís day thing happening and kids just couldnít be there. That sounded reasonable to me, as I didnít tell the lady on the phone when I was coming until I asked the next set of questions. I asked the manager if it wasnít a special day would kids be allowed and he told me "no, not on weekends". At this point I had to take the questioning all the way so I asked him if kids were allowed during the week then. His answer was "sometimes, maybe, not sure". So at this point I canít really blame the lady that answered the phone as the manager is just making stuff up as he goes as well. Maxís let me help you with this. Decide on a policy regarding minors, inform your staff, and then put it on your website. I realize you have a fantastic selection and are probably one of the best beer bars in the country but if you keep pissing people off that isnít going to be enough someday.

Drove all the way down here for lunch with my family only to find out they donít allow anyone under 21. I could understand not allowing anyone under 21 at night but during the day? In a touristy part of town?? What a load of horseshit. Iíve been to some pretty nice beer places all over the country and have never been turned away for this reason. I guess there is a first time for everything. Anyway, if you have your kids with you, donít bother coming here.

In a nice part of town near the water but this place has nothing special atmospher wise, just a well worn pub feel. The beer selection, both on draft in in bottles is huge. I wish Iíd had more time to spend there ticking, but my friend was not feeling well so we bailed early. The place was pretty busy the evening I was there and service was not especially good. They do offer tasters, but the prices for them are pretty high, about half the price of a full pint. Iíd love to go back some time when I have more time to spend and maybe at a time of day when they are not so busy.

Visited 04/02/15. Cool location near the water in downtown Baltimore. The bar itself really isnít much to look at. Itís a busy wood-paneled place that prioritizes functionality over style or atmosphere. The bathrooms look like something youíd find in county lock-up. However, the beer selection more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. The tap list was as large as it was impressive. I was so consumed by the draft choices that I didnít pay much attention to the expansive number of bottles available. I settled on a Mikkeller offering I had never seen before and was pleasantly surprised by the price. I also appreciated that all beers are available as tasters. Service was quick and professional. Overall, a really impressive spot that deserves the acclaim it receives.

Maxís has a comfortable ílived-iní feel to the pub. Staff were welcoming on my 2 visits. The tap selection as noted is pretty crazy and Iíd be surprised if anyone couldnít find a beer worth drinking on that list! Heaps of bottles that can be purchased to drink in, and takeway. I enjoyed some relaxing beers when it wasnít too busy but I can imagine it could be very different during the madness of weekends and festivals here. Cool location on a bustling street down by the waterfront. One of the better beer bars Stateside for sure.

Finally made the trip to check this place out. Parking is a little steep at the nearby parking decks but thatís Baltimore. We went early on a Saturday so no crowds, very long spacious bar and long table seating in the Baltimore/Maryland themed place. We were given a paper beer menu of the insane number of taps offered (80íish+ that day) and a short menu of bar food. Beer was excellent, food was decent and service was awesome and entertaining. Plenty of TVs to watch some of the Terps game that afternoon. In short worth a trip once if only to snag a very limited beer release or a hard to find import. I can only imagine how busy Maxs is at night, it was getting pretty full even in the early afternoon.
