Max's Taphouse (http://www.maxs.com) in Baltimore, Maryland celebrates Star-Spangled Sailabration 2012 (http://www.starspangled200.com) honoring the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and announces their Italian Brew Festival in July 2012. Max's isn't just known for its extensive beer list of 102 rotating draft beers, 5 hand pumps and over 1,800 different bottles of beer; it's also known for celebrating everything Baltimore and it's heritage.
Owner Ron Furman and General Manager Casey Hard have been diligently working on Sailabration 2012. From the exterior decorations of the building to honor our heritage to the various beer events celebrating Sailabration 2012, Max's Taphouse strives to provide all consumers with the full effect of Sailabration. "The city of Baltimore has put together Sailabration 2012 to honor the 200th anniversary of the war of 1812 which revolved around Fort McHenry. This is a terrific event for families and friends to enjoy through Tuesday, June 19th, 2012" says Ron Furman. Beer expert Casey Hard has complimented the Sailabration by offering unique events daily. Friday we celebrate with Sea Dog Brewery, Monday with Full Sail Brewery and Tuesday with a local favorite, Heavy Seas Brewery. "We expect record crowds to see the tall ships, Blue Angels and of course, the spectacular fireworks on Saturday evening," stated Furman. According to Casey Hard, Max's Taphouse anticipates a record crowd inside to celebrate the breweries and all Max's Taphouse has to offer. Ron Furman is known for recycling everything he can get his hands on. This week the exterior of the roof of the building is decorated with empty key kegs containing red, white and blue lights along with the American Flag made of reclaimed wood from a building torn down in Fells Point. "We made a conscious decision years ago to reduce our carbon footprint and recycle everything we possibly can," states Furman.
