What’s a better combo than food and beer (aside from more food and  more beer)? Now, exactly what kind of food that’s there every night is a question you’ll have to experience to answer. But we will have food trucks, food B-More kitchen, BBQ, stuff with bacon on it, and of course seafood. We’re still figuring this part out because honestly, we spend a lot of time thinking about beer. As we go on we’ll start featuring more and more of the same folks. But right now, we want to find out what you like. So, while you’re there if there’s food that you like, let us know; and if there’s something you’d like to see, well, let us know that too.

Our year-round beers are Baltimore Pale Ale and Hops the Cat IPA. Current regular seasonals are Memorial Pils and Fleet Street Raspberry Wheat which are both available Spring and Summer. We also have two “series’” of beers: First is the “Hops the Cat Adventure Series” which tells a story and consists of one-off and special release IPAs. The second series we’re just now starting is the “Govans Gose” line which will start with our blackberry version in October. We’ll occasionally re-release this beer with different fruit combos.


Full Tilt’s story really beings back in early 1984 when we cousins, Nick and Dan, were brought into this world. Years later, in 2008, a lifelong friendship saw an opportunity to have some fun and brew some beer. A homebrew kit was purchased and, from the very first brew in Nick’s Glen Burnie apartment at the time, a passion was ignited. Week by week, we would get more and more obsessed, buy more and more brew toys, and drink more and more of our ever-increasingly Fully Tilted homebrewed treats with equally thirsty friends. Once we stepped up to our All-Grain Brutus-10 system (which we appropriately named Ethel) there was no stopping what was to come. We didn’t know it at the time, however, because we had no money and no clear path to going commercial.

In comes Stephen Demczuk, who was working on building Peabody Heights, a contract brewery where middle-class, broke, and clueless homebrewers like us could get our foot in the door of the beer industry and test our mettle against other brewers already on the shelves. That was it. We were in. Game on. This path, over the subsequent 6 years, would completely change our lives in ways we couldn’t imagine. Not only did we have one hell of a time promoting our beer and meeting new friends and family but we figured out we could actually come up with some great recipes and creative marketing. It was time to do this in our own facility, by our own rules, and with our own team…

After an exhaustive search far and wide, while facing countless hurdles in day-to-day operations along the way, we found ourselves in what is now our new home on York Road in the place we know and love, Baltimore City. Since 2008 we have indeed done some Full Tilt things such as brew our 9% ridiculously sneaky smooth Patterson Pumpkin beer, launch the Hops-the-Cat Adventure Series, find ourselves as far north as Erie, PA for the Beer on the Bay Fest, and a few times as far west as Denver Colorado for the Great American Beer Fest. That all being said, we are just getting started. Brace yourselves. Full Tilt is home and we’re not kidding around anymore.
