PA's Top Distillers All Under One Roof

It all started here.

Pennsylvania is where American distilling began over 300 years ago. Before Prohibition, there were hundreds of licensed distilleries (and many more unlicensed) across the state. Today, a new group is reclaiming Pennsylvania’s distilling heritage.

At the PA Spirits Convention, we celebrate Pennsylvania’s distilling past, present and future!

Have a drink, Help a farmer.

People often ask us why we put these events on. Our goal is to help local small farmers. Farmers grow grains. Distilleries use grains to make their spirits. Large distilleries need large shipments of grains – more than a small, local farmer can produce.

But smaller distilleries can and want to buy local. In fact, local farmers can focus on superior seeds and greater variety. Better grains, better spirits, better farm preservation.

We need our PA distilleries from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh to be successful so they can buy from local farmers. That’s why we do it.
