Great place, great bartender & what a selection. Ten Fidy on tap!!! Two Italian Micros on tap. Every bottle you can almost imagine. Great appetizers (Pulled Pork Nachos & Crab Artichoke Dip) Bartenders Jamie & Jason were great. Too many Mileer & Coors Neons if had to find one thing wrong. But the selection.............

This place is fantastic. I spent the last month in Baltimore, and was there twice a week at least. Upon entering, you are greated with their ever-changing list of whats on tap (35-70 beers on any given night) which run the gambit from barely wine to pilsners, lambics to imperial pale ales. Hand pumps, too. I never even got to the bottles, but rest assured there are plenty. The food is pretty good, a little above typical bar food. The bar tenders were never anything but nice to me, although they are certainly more patient on a week night than 11pm on a Saturday (but what bartender isnt?) And if your a pint glass collector, be sure to check out their website for more info on the pinch-the-pint Wednesday happy hour special.
No more Cigars, though. Maryland’s smoking ban went into effect Feb 1st, 2008.

Nice place that gets pretty busy usually. Nice happy hour all day monday and the beers are changing all the time and always a perfect selection. Never been without finding something I didn’t like.
Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon, and the bar was filled up with a diverse clintele watching NFL Ticket. Bottle/Tap line-up is amazing, and vintage beers are also seldom seen in other bars. Beers prices were very reasonable. I too wish this bar was in my neighborhood.

Atmosphere of an old dive bar: darts, plenty of beer signs, cigarrettes, and general cowboy and sports-bar ambiance. Casey was happy to talk beer, new imports, cool random stuff, etc. for a good long while with us even though the place was packed. Thoroughly excellent selection with seemingly unbeatable prices (for six reasonably hard to find, and stellar, beers on tap, our bill was $29.99). A must stop.
this has to be the best seletion of beer i have seen in a bar. the bar tenders were very helpful and knowledgble about the beers. the aged beers cooler was a great site to see also.i would love to visit this place regularly
Stopped in on a Sunday night after a Ravens game (I did not go, just happened to be in town). Bartender immediately mentions that they may have about 8 drafts that were gone and apologized- now that’s being on top of it. He also made sure my glass was never empty, and they were rather busy. The ambience fits it to the whole Fells Point vibe- historic and rustic neighborhood tavern. Nice rotating tap selection as well as lots of bottles. They even have a vintage cooler with all the Harvest and Old Stock Ale vintages listed by year! Nothing fancy here, just a friendly semi-dive bar with a great selection of beer. Just how I like it.

One of the best. Around 60 or so constantly rotating draft beers, with an ever changing bottle selection featuring 100’s of new beers and classics. Max’s always has top notch Belgian stuff that you will be lucky to find ANYWHERE. Great specials. Max’s rules.
A critical stop on the Baltimore Brew tour. One block from The Wharf Rat - staggering distance past the exterior set for Homicide (my all-time favorite TV show) down at Fells Point. Loud sports bar, average grub. Great prices on, and selection of pints on tap. Lots of Mid-Atlantic regionals, unusual stuff of high quality - Unibroue, Sourthampton, Bear Republic. A bozillion bottles that I didn’t even get to. Food was pub grub, nothing special. Parking was available, but a bit tricky.
Visited Max’s on a Friday night and a Saturday afternoon two weeks later. Both times the bar was crowded, especially for a Saturday afternoon, but the bartenders were great and I never waited more then a few minutes for a beer. Both times I stuck to drat beer and never even looked at the bottle list. The biggest highlight for me was on trip number two finding Peche Mortel on draft, I could of stayed there all day drinking that one. This place is an absolute must for anyone going to Baltimore.
