First Annual San Diego Craft Distillers Guild Fest Debuts At Liberty Station
As part of its commitment to promoting local craft spirits, the San Diego Distillers Guild has announced the arrival of its first annual San Diego Craft Distillers Guild Fest (“Distillers Fest”), taking place at Liberty Station.
Not Just a Beer City!
Distillers Fest is the answer to the city’s many beloved beer festivals – but instead of focusing on brewing, will pay homage to San Diego’s quickly-growing craft distilling scene.

Guests will experience a variety of tastes from twenty local craft distilleries and will have the rare chance to meet and chat with many of the experts who create San Diego’s award-winning craft spirits.
