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.”
