Went here on consecutive early-week nights and it was packed both times, but the staff handled the onslaught well. Pleasant refurbished two-story brick and wood interior has a nice ambiance but got a bit noisy for my old ears. 6 home team drafts at a time plus about 50 bottles that are well-selected crafts with an emphasis on Georgia brews. I had the six-flight and then some selected pints and all of them were good to excellent. Wood-fired grill made a fabulous steak one night and a good pizza the next. Value is great for the quality of the offerings, especially in a downtown location. They are currently expanding out the back to incorporate a biergarten in the near future.

In the door around 1PM on a Thursday in mid August 2017, straight off the MARTA from the airport. Cool fairly open interior downstairs, upstairs (which is where the restrooms are) looks rather nice as well. Six of their own beers on when I went, and that seems to be the standard, with a seventh tap offering a cider. Flight of all six at 5oz each is available. The room smells of barbecue and slow burning wood. Food menu is solid but slightly pricey for what I recall of Atlanta on my last trip, but that was a couple years ago, and this is right in the middle of the city, so that could be a part of it. Seems to be a well loved place, as there’s quite the good crowd going around lunch time. Had a great time here, worth a visit.
Didn’t get a chance on the first visit to get to the upstairs which has an expanded list of 14 of their own, with a bunch of more interesting looking things. Definitely a reason to get back.
Edit: Came back the following day (Friday) when the upstairs bar opened at noon and went through another 10 of their beers, with the bulk being sours (might have been busting out a more diverse set of things for the Shelton Festival being in town), and a few barrel aged imperial stouts. Quite worth going upstairs.

While traveling in Atlanta, I stopped into this place. I started rating beers fom the sampler, and the owner saw me and started talking to me. We talked for at least an hour, and I think the beers were fairly good even if not outstanding. I had an unfinished sample of the Imperial IPA (very good). The service and hospitality were superb.

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. I’m 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, I’d say it was worth that walk, but not much more!

Downtown location with crappy parking. Brewery equipment is open into the restaurant and very visable. The place was very crowded and busy with a good restaurant decor. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly about their beers but seemed too busy to focus on their customers. The selection of beers was good and the food was very good. Overall this was a nice place, better than some of the other Atlanta brewpubs but nowhere near the quality of 5 seasons.

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.

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.

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 wasn’t 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.

Popular twin-floored brick brewpub at the top end of Peachtree Street in the city centre, just where the road slightly changes direction. There’s two bars here on either level, but the main action seems to take place downstairs with its bar area against the right hand side. There’s plenty of their ales available, best tried through their six-flight option if you want to give as many a go as possible. It’s a lovely place with a balcony at the rear of its top floor.

Large place, two floors. Busy decour with brewing equipment throughout. 6 own beers on tap downstairs, flight of 6 for $14. Lots of assorted bottles in the fridge. Top floor opens later and I was not able to visit it.

Downtown Atlanta is a wasteland for food and beer - which makes no sense since the city itself has so many great food and beer places. Max Lager’s is a fairly typical brewpub with typical brewpub fare. Beers were ok. Not bad. But this is the best you’ll do downtown. And even on a Wednesday night, it was packed.
