The 5th annual German Beer Festival in Baltimore will have over 80 rotating German Beers on draft with over 60 German bottled beers. “It’s not that we set out to make it even grander than the year before, but the German brewers hear what a loyal beer following we have and they send us something special,” says owner Ron Furman. Beer expert Casey Hard explains “we will have some amazing authentic German gravity kegs, some which have never been in the United States before and you will only be able to sample them here at Max’s Taphouse.” Max’s Taphouse is the only tavern to have Schneider Edel Weisse in a German 90 liter wooden gravity keg; it’s extremely rare and one of a kind. In addition to Max’s having the authentic German beer, they will be served in authentic beer glasses such as sample glasses, pint glasses, beer steins, one-liter boots and two-liter boots. Some German beers we will have available will be Hacklberg Hochfurst Pils, Fritz Briem 1809 Berliner Weisse Zymagore, Aecht Schlenkerla Weizen, Acrobrau Zwicklbier, Hofbrau Oktoberfest, Schlaegl Roggengold, Stift Engelsell Benno, Innstadt Stadl Bier, Schneider Hopfenweisse, Bahnorf Leigziger Gose, and Hofstetten Granitice. To compliment the German beer experience, Max’s Taphouse has a full German inspired food menu including authentic German sausage. “In order for our customer to fully experience the German flavor of the beers, they have to eat appropriate German food and savor the flavors of how the food compliments the beer they have chosen,” says Food and Beverage Manager Robert Simko. “Not only that; it’s fun to hear our customers try and pronounce the name of the beer they want!” The German Beer Festival is open daily from 11 a.m. until 2 a.m. There is no admittance fee to enter the German Beer Festival at Max’s Taphouse.
