Max’s Taphouse (J.M. Giordano / February 14, 2015)

Feb. 17, 2015 –By Steve Fogelman, City Paper. “Last month, just two establishments in Maryland were honored as “Top Places to Have a Beer in the World” by the crowd-sourced RateBeer.com annual survey. Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore and State Line Liquors in Elkton made the cut, which makes sense, as both are hallowed Free State beer grounds for aficionados. I caught up with the owners of both businesses by phone while they were coincidentally on separate and simultaneous vacations in Florida earlier this month. The traits these businesses share, such as family and dedication to the craft scene, are the underpinnings of their success… READ the FULL ARTICLE at:

What is a “Tap Social?”

Well, a Tap Social is similar to a “Rep Tasting”… a casual get-together for sampling beers from a single brewery and are generally held on Friday afternoons from 5pm to 7pm.  Most of the time we charge a nominal fee to “participate” in this 2 hour social. For that fee, you usually get a free glass along with unlimited sampling! The beers are generously discounted and often the reps will have giveaways on top of it!

Check out our upcoming Tap Socials in the Event Schedule below or click for our complete schedule!


Our Beer Tastings & other good stuff:

Tap Socials: Usually on Thursday and Friday, 4-6pm (sometimes 7pm) but check schedule to confirm as times may change. For $5, unlimited sampling of a featured brewery.

You get a brewery glass, unlimited sampling, sometimes there’s brewery swag & discussion w/ the rep, brewer.

Beer Samplings: These tastings are sometimes on Fridays and always on Saturdays, usually all day and may be draft and/ or bottles.

We charge 1 penny (because we aren’t allowed to give away alcoholic beverages) and the samples are limited to a decent tasting.

Sometimes there’s a rep & sometimes they bring free swag.

Tap Takeovers: Usually take place on Thursday and/or Saturday nights, 7-9pm or so. We’ll tap anywhere from 15 to 35 + beers!

The draft selection may be all one brewery, several from a region or we may do a themed selection (like Christmas Beers).

Sometimes there’s food (pizza, brats, etc), snacks (pretzels, chips, cheese, etc), brewery swag, brewers, reps, drawings, silent auction tables………

We charge a little bit more these tastings, maybe $10 to $20 but it’s a great deal and lots of fun!

Sit-Down Beer Tastings: Limited, reservation required tastings
