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.

First Annual Distillers Fest Debuts At Liberty Station On Saturday, November 16

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. Held within the Arts District’s popular Building 177, with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams above 7,000+ square feet of event space,  Distiller’s Fest is designed as the city’s first upscale artisanal spirits festival. 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.
