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


Copious amounts of Citra, Amarillo, El Dorado, Ahtanum, Azacca, Centennial and Cascade hops are backed by a mild toasted malt character. Dry hopped twice with even more of this great hop blend. Your hop head may explode!

IBU 90 | ABV 8.1% | O.G. 16.3º Plato

Resurgens Rye DIPA

This honey-amber brew bursts with bright tangerine and citrus notes from the Jarrylo and Azacca hops, new varietals out of the Yakima Valley region. The juicy hop notes are perfectly complemented by a complex and spicy rye finish.

IBU 112 | ABV 9.4% | O.G. 20˚ Plato

Köln Kommen

Pale straw in color and crisp, clean, and refreshing: this is the traditional Kölsch-style ale you would find in the pubs of Cologne, Germany. Served in a traditional “Stange” glass.

IBU 25 | ABV 4.8% | O.G. 12° Plato

Max Abbey

Max Abbey is truly a very special beer. Its rich malt character and complex spiciness have notes of caramel and dark fruit with just a touch of chocolate in the finish. Additions of dark Belgian “Candi” sugar add a subtle sweetness that pairs perfectly with its warming alcohol notes and makes it the perfect beer to go with dinner or just to be enjoyed on its own.

IBU 15 | ABV 7.5% | OG 17° Plato

Hitze Keller Pils

Hitze (German for Heat Wave) is a non-traditional, unfiltered German style lager with a medium light body and a crisp hoppy finish featuring
German Tettnanger, Mandarina, and Huell Melon hops.

IBU 50 | ABV 5.7% | O.G. 12.3º Plato

Livin’s Easy*

It’s summertime and the…well, you know the song. Livin’s Easy is a lighter IPA hopped with a technique known as “hop bursting”. No bittering hops are used, but an abundance of Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic, 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. Now all you need is a beach somewhere…

IBU 66 | ABV 6.3% | O.G. 14.1° Plato
