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


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


This award-winning bitter-sweet Imperial Mocha Oatmeal Stout (IMOS) has a smooth, creamy body and rich roasted malt character with distinct coffee and chocolate notes. Brewmaster John Roberts brought home a bronze medal from the 2011 Great American Beer Festival for this Max Lager’s Fall favorite.

IBU 70 | ABV 8.7% | O.G. 20.4˚ Plato

Reserve Lager

A crisp amber lager with a subtle malt sweetness and a dry hoppy finish from
German Tettnanger and Czech Saaz hops.

IBU 35 | ABV 5.8% | OG 13.7° Plato

3×5 Grand Cru*

In Belgium, Gran Cru is a designation given to a brewer’s special beer of the year. This strong white beer was brewed with Pilsner, wheat, and rye malts and oats, then finished with a blend of Mandarina, Citra, and Mittlefrau hops that is further accented with sweet orange peel, Indian coriander, chamomile, and lemon peel. A truly complex and wonderful ale!

IBU 15 | ABV 8.8% | OG 20.1° Plato

Pacifica Pale Ale

In a world of hoppy IPA’s, it’s sometimes nice to sit back and enjoy a more traditional pale ale. A delicate balance is struck between English Maris Otter malt and a blend of New Zealand Pacifica and Yakima Ahtanum hops, making each sip as satisfying as the last.

IBU 49 | ABV 4.8% | O.G. 12.1º Plato


Brewed in collaboration with Nick Rutherford, owner of The Porter Beer Bar, this Saison went through a partial kettle sour to create a tart counterpoint to the spicy notes from traditional French Saison yeast and a finish from sweet orange peel, chamomile, grains of paradise,
and coriander.

IBU 15 | ABV 6% | O.G. 14˚ Plato
