George Marsh’s Heritage Smokehouse took a big step today toward operating as a full-service restaurant and tavern, when Baltimore;s liquor board approved its request for a seven-day liquor license at 5800 York Road, in Govans.
In culinary terms, George Marsh knows how to get the most out of an animal. He cut his teeth leading the butchery program for the lauded Woodberry Kitchen and, from 2013 to summer 2018, served as head chef for Remington’s now-shuttered whole-animal butchery and eatery Parts and Labor.
“I loved my job there, I loved what I was doing, I loved the place. The butcher shop was my baby,” he says. “I don’t think I could get rid of that–it’s part of me now. It’s how I think and how I do things. I know it’s a good way to operate.”
With a mural up on the walls and a NBA Jam arcade cabinet procured, Full Tilt Brewing is just about ready to launch its new brewery at 5604 York Road.
One of the brewery’s co-founders, Nick Fertig, said they are hoping to open the doors on Dec. 14.
“I’ll be happy if it’s just before the end of the year,” he said.
