Max Lager’s Beer
“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.”
Now on Tap
(Centennial Rye Pale Ale)
Don’t let the light body and low alcohol on this single hop session beer fool you. Session 3 packs a big hop punch from citrusy Centennial hops and a complex spice character from rye malt. Extremely refreshing!
IBU 45 ABV 5% O.G. 14° Plato
This pumped up version of a traditional Euro-Pils features a pale straw color and a crisp hop finish from a blend of Mittlefrau and Tettnanger hops. Don’t let the medium-light body fool you, Max is a strong King! King Max Rules!
IBU 65 ABV 7.4% O.G. 16.5˚ Plato
A vibrantly red Vienna-Style lager, Max Red is a mild blend of a rich toasted malt character and subtle but spicy hop finish.
IBU 22 ABV 5% O.G. 13º Plato
Intensely hoppy India Pale Ale with a toasted malt backbone to back up a citrusy/spicy finish from aggressive hopping with a blend of hops from the Pacific Northwest.
IBU 70 ABV 6.5% O.G. 14º Plato
(Munich Helles Style Lager)
This is a classic Helles style beer with a deep golden color, low hop bitterness and subtle malt sweetness. A perfectly refreshing beer for when the temperature starts to cool and the days get shorter.
IBU 18 ABV 5% O.G. 13º Plato
St. Mungo 90 Shilling Scotch Ale*
St. Mungo has a sweet malt character achieved by boiling the “heavy” first runnings of the mash along with dark brown sugar to caramelize the sugars.This complex caramel character is accented by a faint smokiness in the finish. English East Kent Golding hops round out this extremely drinkable, full-bodied ale. Served unfiltered.
IBU 18 ABV 9% O.G. 22.5º Plato
“IMOS” Imperial Mocha Oatmeal Stout
*JR’s IMOS won a Bronze Medal at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival in the Imperial Stout category*
Smooth creamy body and a rich roasted malt character with distinct coffee and chocolate notes and an overall bittersweet quality.
