The San Diego Distillers Guild has announced the return of the San Diego Distillers Guild Fest!

Now returning and ready to show off San Diego’s craft distilling community, this year’s festival will take place in a new and larger venue featuring 12,000 square feet of airy indoor and outdoor space overlooking San Diego Bay in downtown San Diego.

Designed as San Diego’s first upscale artisanal spirits festival, the San Diego Distillers Guild Fest invites you to enjoy a night out in an intimate and experiential setting. Ticket holders will enjoy complimentary spirits and cocktails from nearly twenty craft distilleries, sweet and savory bites from local restaurants, music by jazz ensemble , The Justin Joyce Trio, and beautiful bay views on an expansive, open-air patio.
