Craft Beer Spotlight: Max’s Taphouse
In the heart of the historic Fells Point in Baltimore there lies a craft beer mecca known as Max’s Taphouse. With over 100 craft beers on tap, 5 cask lines, and over 1300 bottles, Max’s is known to many locals as the best spot in the city for an always rotating craft beer selection. Not only is Max’s well known around the city of Baltimore but around the world as well. Max’s ranks 39th on craft-beer website Ratebeer’s “Top Beer Destinations” in the world. They combine a comfortable bar scene, knowledgeable bar staff, and a beer selection that is unmatched to create absolute perfection in the world of craft beer.
Max’s has been operating for 32 years now under the owner Ron Furman. In its early years it was known as the music venue Max’s on Broadway, welcoming top-tier talent like The Smashing Pumpkins and the famous writer Hunter S. Thompson. It was eventually rebranded as Max’sTaphouse and switched its focus over to craft beer. Beer prices (usually ranging from $3.50 to $12), daily specials, and endless events tend to bring an easy-going crowd of beer drinkers together for a damn good time.
On Tuesday, June 19th, Max’s will have a new brewery pouring out of its ever so famous taps. New to the Maryland craft beer scene, Neshaminy Creek will feature 8 different beers on tap here starting at 5 pm. The beers will include J.A.W.N(Juicy Ale With Nugget), The Shape of Hops to Come, Highwater Hefeweizen, County Line IPA, Churchville Lager, Trauger Pilsner, Croydon Cream Ale, and Keep It On The DL Session IPA. Make sure to get there before your favorite beer runs out!
