April 5, 2019
The largest all-American whiskey convention in the country returned for its fourth year on Friday, April 5th, at 5:30 PM (VIP ticketholders) and 6:30 PM (General Admission). This grand tasting event featured over 250 bourbons and whiskeys from American Distilleries.
Guests sampled amazing spirits, shopped artisan crafts and one-of-a-kind items from a variety of vendors. Barrel aged beers and wines, an excellent masseuse, and all the latest in whiskey lifestyle trends were available to each attendee.
Everyone was free to talk with to experts, distillers, farmers and maltsers.
This year, we were pleased to have celebrity Chef Chad Rosenthal of The Lucky Well in Ambler, Pa. preparing locally sourced pork from Hershberger Heritage Farms for a pig roast!
Chef Rosenthal is already looking forward to next year when we'll be upping the whiskey-paired cuisine with a new and exciting menu. Look for his new restaurant opening soon in Philadelphia!
Our inner Indiana Jones was inspired- the world of the ancients was explored in the stunning Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology.
The American Whiskey Convention is designed to educate the public about the grains and the farmers behind the grains that are grown to craft our favorite whiskeys.
Discover the grains that drive the taste of spirits from the farmers that grow them. Each year, meet the millers, maltsters, and agricultural businesses behind your favorite whiskeys!
Catered foods, spirits and beers were all made with an American Whiskey influence. The 2019 American Whiskey Convention hosted Celebrity Chef Chad Rosenthal's pig roast, Hershberger Heritage Farms meats, whiskey infused chocolates, sweets and cakes, Weyerbacher Brewery and Free Will Brewery barrel aged beers, and whiskey barrel aged wines!
