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, the handcrafted beers of Brew Master John Roberts 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.”

The Gremlin

(Baltic Porter)

This deceivingly smooth dark lager is rich with notes of coffee, caramel and dark choclate blended with toasty Munich malt notes and a subtle earthy/minty hop finish. Brewed in collaboration with Peachtree City’s Gremlin Growlers, a few Gremlins may bring out the mischievous side of you!

Harvest Ale

Brewed to celebrate the changing of the seasons, this red ale strikes a beautiful balance between toasty caramel notes and a citrusy hop finish with just a touch of spice from rye malt. Cheers to the cooler weather!
