Located on Glen Street in the heart of downtown Glens Falls, Mean Max is focused on one thing: Bringing great beer to great people.  This nano brewery serves a comprehensive selection of unfiltered lager and ale in a fun, friendly space.

Mean max is a licensed New York State farm brewery and taproom, meaning the ingredients used to make the beer are primarily sourced in New York State.  Mean Max uses traditional beer making techniques paired with green processes, presenting a distinct and delicious selection of beers.  Many of the beer names come from local attractions in and around the Adirondack park.  The Chaser EPA, Panther Gorge India Pale Lager and Tahawus IPA are some local favorites.  Mean Max also has a selection of wine and craft sodas for those who are not beer drinkers.  

Mean Max Brew Works is a bring your own food establishment.  A wooden box sits upon the concrete bar. This box contains take out menus from many of the great eating establishments located around town.   Mean Max is a great place to go if your group can’t decide on one thing for dinner. Have a little bit of everything.  If home cooking is more your style, there are outlets right on the bar to plug in your crock pot.  Nothing like a Stout No Doubt and some spicy aprés ski chili to warm you up after some laps in Cole's Woods.

Mean Max is a great spot to hatch plans and regale friends with tales of past adventures.  It’s location in beautiful downtown Glens Falls puts you close to tons of great restaurants, the Wood Theatre, the Feeder Canal and much more.
