Max Lager’s Beer

Max Lagers Wood-Fired Grill & Brewery Atlanta
“Incredible” . . . “Awesome” . . . “My favorite”
“Can I buy this in a store?”
“Are you interested in opening in Sydney?”
“When is your IMOS (Imperial Mocha Oatmeal Stout) coming back?”

These are some of the sounds at Max Lager’s bar and restaurant in downtown Atlanta. Each day Max hosts guests from around the world, whether it’s international flight crews, British tourists, Swiss NASCAR fans, or Atlanta regulars, our Brew Master John Roberts’ hand crafted beers never disappoint.

One guest summed it up when asked which Max beer was her favorite – “Each beer was my favorite when I was drinking it.”

Now on Tap


Originally brewed by monks in Munich as “liquid bread” to get them through the extended fasting of the Lenten season, the monks believed that the liquid not only cleansed the body but the soul and the more they consumed the Holier they were…ahh those were the days! Dopplebock is a strong but incredibly smooth malt bomb with some light caramel and toasted notes followed by a dry-ish finish that leaves you wanting…to become more Holy! Prost!

IBU 20 | ABV 9% | O.G. 23º Plato


A Pale Ale just in time for football season, that showcases heritage pilsner malt and the classic character of Mittelfrau hops.  The addition of Mosaic hops give this beer enough hop presence to carry you through the Overtime to victory!

IBU 25 | ABV 5.3% | OG 12.6° Plato


An unfiltered Belgian-style White beer, WOW has a refreshing spicy character from Belgian yeast, coriander, lemon peel, and orange peel in the finish. Its light body and crisp tartness is a perfect accompaniment to any spicy dish.

IBU 18 | ABV 5% | OG 13° Plato


Double India Pale Lager with hop notes of lime zest, mango, guava, and melon play well with the minerality of the lager yeast. Paired with a heritage pilsner and carahell malts and a delicious dry finish. Collaboration with Red Brick Brewing!

IBU 80 | ABV 8% | OG 16.9° Plato


An India Black Ale, this well hopped dark ale features a fruity and earthy blend of Jaryllo, Amarillo and Cascade hops, balanced with notes of toffee and chocolate, and made even more complex with a subtle smoked flavor from house made smoked malt. Feel the power of The Dark Side!

IBU 18 | ABV 4.7% | O.G. 12.3º Plato


Hopped with a technique known as “hop bursting”, copious amounts of Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic, El Dorado and Azacca are added at the last minute to give this IPA a luscious tropical character bursting with notes of pineapple, mango, orange and guava.

IBU 100 | ABV 8.1% | O.G. 16.2º Plato
