Max’s Belgian Beer Festival (Baltimore) is February 15-18: huge beer list

Published on February 10, 2019.

Max’s Taphouse Belgian Belgian Beer Festival, one of the premier Belgian beer fests in the USA, is coming up next weekend. The beer list, as every year, is huge: over 200 Belgian beers on draft, and 200+ in bottles over the course of the four days of the President’s Day weekend.

For you lambic fans attending, there are plenty to choose from. Casey Hard, Max’s General Manager and organizer of the Belgian fest, had this to say: “We will have lambics from 3 Fonteinen, Cantillon, Boon, De Troch, Girardin, Hanssens, Lindemans, Oud Beersel, Tilquin, and Timmermans on offer at the fest.”

That’s nearly all of Belgium’s lambic producers! Also, many of Belgium’s other great breweries are on the list. Here’s the list, below, for the Friday through Sunday. Monday, February 18, President’s Day, is Sour Day, dedicated to non-Belgian sour brews.
