Max?s Belgian beer fest in Fells Point is slated to have over 100 Belgian beers on draft this weekend. Which is ironic, because in Belgium you?re lucky to find ten beers on draft  at a top notch beer bar at any given time.

I saw Blur at Max's way back when.  Belgian Beer fest sounds like fun. 

That Belgian Beer fest is REALLY fun.  It gets crowded quickly, so get there early.

Has anyone had the 21st Amendment stout brewed with oyster shells?  Sounds interesting.

Sounds too crowded and kid-unfriendly for me.

I like their Friday pre-Orioles game Happy Hours...when anything under 8% abv is served in a 32 oz cup for $6. Had one Deviant Dales and half of something else and barely made it to the game when a friend and I went last year.

A bar being kid unfriendly?  That is quite suprising.  Max's doesn't seem like a good place to pre-game for the orioles drinking 32 oz beers.  long way to the yards.

We've found most pubs, breweries, and tasting rooms around North America and Europe to be very family-friendly. Best to avoid going at the busiest times though.

Max's is but a short walk for a marathon runner.  ;) Except when you're drinking 32 oz pours!

Here's a good list of Philly beer bars.

http://www.visitphilly.com/articles/philadelphia/top-beer-bars-in-philadelphia/

And here's a great site listing what's on tap in Philly. Wish we had something this good for DC.

I've only been to Philly once in the last 15 years, for a daytrip. We really should go more. We went to Eulogy and Memphis Taproom. Eulogy was pretty decent, Memphis Taproom was better.

i was going to post something about hitting up monk's cafe while in philly for NHC, but then i thought realistically i doubt i'm going to make it.  beer will be flowing non-stop at the conference, every night has a special event: pro night, club night, grand banquet (even the BN party on wednesday night if you get there early).  there will be more beer than you can possibly drink.  i just don't see myself trekking across town to a bar when there will be hundreds of kegs on offer.  then again, i'm lazy.  hey, while you're up, get me a refill will ya?

Well in the first link it says this about monk's:

"

Monk?s Café
 The bar that brought Belgian ales to America, Monk?s has won every conceivable award for its Belgian beer and food menu that reads like a novel. The tavern has been named ?One of the Top Five Places in the World to Have a Beer Before You Die? by All About Beer magazine. And owner Tom Peters has been knighted as a Chevalier du Fourquette des Brasseurs, the 500-year-old Belgian brewers guild, and is one of four Ambassadeurs Orval in the U.S., which means Trappist monks have acknowledged his ability to properly serve their beer.
