Belgian Beer Fest

at Max's Tavern in Baltimore

17 February 2008


Dan ventured up I-95 to Baltimore to partake in the annual Belgian Beer Fest at Max's in Fells Point. He said he had a good time (based on his tasting notes below, I would say yes he did!)

Quite an impressive selection with over 50 beers to choose from
