HOPFEST 2021

HOPFEST 2021 IS AUGUST 6TH TO 8TH AT MAX’S TAPHOUSE
The taphouse, located at 737 S Broadway, will open at 11:30am daily to serve patrons the hoppiest beers available.
In preparation of the event, Max’s has acquired over 60 kegs along with a few cans to highlight the art of the hops. The majority of the beers will be IPAs, Double IPAs and Triple IPAs with a few Sour IPAs and Pale Ales in the mix. In addition to regular tap lines, there will also be a handful of cask ales. These ales have undergone a secondary fermentation, with no filtration or pasteurization. They are served via a hand-operated hydraulic pump just a few feet below the main bar.

Approximately 50% of the featured beers are from Maryland breweries, in an effort to encourage patrons to drink local.

All of these feature drafts are in addition to Max’s Taphouse’s “typical” draft offerings. The taphouse will feature over 40 additional kegs in alternative styles including but not limited to lagers, wheat ales, porters, ciders, kolsches, sours and stouts.
This event is in person. However, guests can order at shop.maxs.com day of and receive any of the draft beers in 8oz, 19.2oz and 32oz pours to go for enjoyment at home (at #YOURhouse!).

In addition to the festival at Max’s Taphouse, there will also be a Brews Cruise: HOPPY Hour Edition in partnership with the Baltimore Water Taxi and Rent-A-Tour on Saturday, August 7th. This event begins with a flight of 4 hoppy beers at Max’s with an informational session by Jason Scheerer, General Manager and Beer Expert. Once guests have tried all 4 brews, they can select their favorite to receive a 19.2oz pour to take upon the Water Taxi. They are then led down to the dock in Fells Point to hop aboard the boat and take a 1 hour cruise around the harbor completed with a beer-themed tour provided by Chris Riehl.
