Max's Belgian beer fest 2011 dates announced

Max's Taphouse has scheduled next year's Belgian beer festival for Feb. 18 through the 20th.

Beer in Baltimore has the draft selection, which is 40 percent finished, cellarmaster Casey Hard says. 

The Belgian fest is an annual tradition at Max's now going into its seventh year.

Last year, it was mobbed as early as 10 a.m. 

Normally, it's held around Valentine's, but this year they've changed it up to a little later in the month. Not that it still won't be in the middle of winter, as writer Alexander D. Mitchell notes.

At the fest, Max's will have 102 Belgian beers on draft and 175 on bottle, with more to be added still.

The list in progress after the jump:

Max's Taphouse? Do they even have Stand up or Magic Shows? I bet you Rah-Rah has never even played there. Sounds lame.

Awesome. Can't wait for this

Couldn't agree more Nikc. Always plan my month around this event each year.

Every year I tell myself this event can't possibly get any better, and somehow or another they always manage.

this is great information for the blog. thanks.

Holy Crap! An actual story about a bar event! Is this considered an "Old School" Midnight Sun entry?

awesome, if there's one thing about this town, it knows it beer!
