Max Lager’s is 18 today!

March 5, 2016 |  by  |  Be the first to Comment

March 5, 1998 – Max Lager’s opens our doors at 320 Peachtree Street…..Since then, we have seen so much growth and change in these 18 years.  From changing beer production laws (all for the better!), to the addition of the Georgia Aquarium (for the betterment of Atlanta GA), to the move of the Coca Cola museum, now the World of Coca-Cola (for the better!), to the opening of the Center for Civil and Human Rights and the College Football Hall of Fame – all of these fabulous jewels added for the  betterment of our wonderful city!

Our entire Max Lager’s team would like to thank YOU, and all of our many, many visitors for visiting us, enjoying our award-winning, hand-crafted beer, our wood-fired cuisine (and the fish & chips!), our fresh squeezed cocktails, and our homemade Max Tap root beer!

Cheers to you all for making us (and keeping us as) the Oldest Brewpub in Georgia!  And cheers to 18 more!  Cindy, JR, and Alan and our entire Max Lager’s team.

Dr. Loosen

What a wonderful way to start our trip in Europe this summer – a visit to the Dr. Loosen winery overlooking the Mosel River just outside the beautiful town of Berkastel-Kues in southwest Germany.   While Riesling is not considered by me (and my traveling companions) to be a favored grape, we were certainly surprised with the quality and enjoyment of the many Rieslings we tasted.

Exciting New Brews

January 20, 2011 |  by  |  Be the first to Comment

This upcoming Wednesday (January 26th) Brewer JR will be tapping the Gimme Shelter Bock (our founding Drink Beer Do Good beer- as it continues to be). JR started brewing this German style beer back in October and it has been lagering ever since, creating a nice smooth malty beer. Pair it with our Braised Beef Short Rib with bleu cheese grits and Brussels sprouts for a perfect winter meal.

Up next: The IMOS: Imperial Mocha Oatmeal Stout.

Menu Changes for Winter

January 3, 2011 |  by  |  Be the first to Comment
Chef Timothy has recently made some seasonal changes to our menu. The Quail and Grits appetizer is quite tasty, and both the Steak & Goat Cheese Salad and the Winter Vegetable Salad are healthy, lite, and delicious new options!

For the heartier appetite the wood-grilled meatloaf is oh so yummy. Pair this with our Joseph Drouhin Pinot Noir, the Robert Sinskey Organic Merlot or the Max Black Lager, and you’ve got an outstanding well-rounded and totally satisfying meal.

These are just a few of the changes. The lunch and dinner menus can be accessed on our Food page, or better yet, come in and try something new!
