Brewer's Art, Max's among America's best beer bars
Max's in Fells Point (Baltimore Sun)
In December, we published our list of Baltimore's best bars: Max's was first in the beer bar category, and 8th in the critic's list; Brewer's was 7th on the critic's list.
Now, Draft magazine, the Cigar Aficionado of beer magazines - celebrities appear on its cover regularly - has published its unranked list of the country's best beer bars.
Max's, it writes, is a haven for "beer nerds:" "Max’s sits on the convergence of all bar cultures: good beer, sports, games, music and, yes, shots."
Meanwhile, drinking at Brewer's is "is like imbibing inside an eccentric millionaire’s front room."
Bier Baron and Churchkey in Washington DC, and Lyon Hall in Arlington, Virginia also made the cut. The news comes via Beer in Baltimore.
The Sun's full list of Baltimore's best beer bars - which includes Mahaffey's and Max's - is here, and its critic's picks list - including Brewer's and Idle Hour - is here.
The Midnight Sun review of Max's, in time for its 25th anniversary, is here.
