The 8th annual Great American Distillers Festival takes place Friday and Saturday, October 19 and 20, 2012 at Tiffany Center (1410 SW Morrison). The fest runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday.
This festival is a gathering of small distillers from across the country who come to Oregon – the Mecca of craft distilling, to share their products, their passion and their expertise in handcrafting spirits.There will be tastings, seminars, a mixology contest for bartenders and more!
A one day pass, which includes 5 taster tickets, is only $15. $25 gets you in both days, plus 10 taster tickets. Additional taster tickets can be purchased of course. Over 40 distillers will be in attendance.
Heather, our friend Diane, and I attended the festival in 2009 and enjoyed quite a few samples of interesting distillations. The move to the Tiffany Center downtown means taking public transit to the event is easy.
