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.”

Gone are the days when potatoes were the only known crop to come out of the state of Idaho as we now welcome the pungent Idaho 7 hop as a stand-alone hop in this India Red Ale. Idaho 7 showcases flavor characteristics of a black tea and stone fruit hop profile balanced by a solid malt profile with subtle notes of toffee while maintaining a dry finish.
