Historic Brewery or Haunted Slaughterhouse?
Located in the heart of Fell’s Point, Max’s Taphouse has been central to Baltimore culture since the mid 19th century. It began as a brothel and slaughterhouse, but these businesses eventually combined into a singular saloon in the early 20th century. By that point, the site was already known for strange and dangerous happenings.
In the years since, it has also operated as a disco, a music venue, and, today, as a brewery. The bar’s past lives contribute to the city’s dynamic culture and the site’s reputation as a place haunted with past misadventures.
The employees of Max’s Taphouse love to relay their ghostly encounters late at night in the brewery. Though most often these come in the form of headless chicken sightings in the basement, there are also several human ghosts that like to hang around.
A woman in a white dress regularly wreaks havoc on the third floor. Meanwhile, some patrons have reported seeing a man float through walls and play with the beer bottles by the bar.
These are just some of the many haunted tales Max’s Taphouse has amassed in its long and varied history. It’s never a dull night out at this brewery.
