American Whiskey Comes Home
American Whiskey Convention is a Grand Tasting at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA on March 25th
Event Date: 3/25/2016
Sponsor: Delaware Valley Fields Foundation
Location: Citizens Bank Park, , Philadelphia, PA

Pennsylvania is the birthplace of American Whiskey. On March 25th, Philadelphia is hosting the country's most exciting distilleries as they highlight their best bourbons and American whiskeys.

Up until prohibition, Pennsylvania was at the heart of American Rye whiskey production. Pennsylvania grew the grains, distilled the spirits and distributed whiskey to the entire nation. Today, there is an American whiskey renaissance happening, and once again, Pennsylvania is taking center stage.

Organized by the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation, the American Whiskey Convention will draw distillers from all over the country to showcase their bourbons and American whiskeys. Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies, in Philadelphia PA is the backdrop for this celebration of American whiskey.

“We are very excited to be able to host the American Whiskey Convention. We have put together a whiskey event for people who enjoy whiskey. I wanted an event that highlights the creativity happening in American whiskey right now, everything from farming, distilling and the artisans who draw their inspiration from the booming whiskey scene.  There is so much going on and American Whiskey deserves to have the spotlight to itself,” says Laura Fields, CEO and founder of Delaware Valley Fields Foundation.

The event is more than a grand tasting. On hand will be local farmers and malt houses to talk about the role they play in the production of whiskey. Artisans will demonstrate their whiskey-related creations. Master distillers Herman Mihalich, of Dad’s Hat and Dave Pickerell, the man behind Whistle Pig and many others, host discussion classes for whiskey connoisseurs. Sarah Milne, of Heaven Hill, hosts a Whiskey 101 tasting for those who are new to whiskey. Mixologists from TwistedTail will be teaching how to make great whiskey cocktails. The Victory Special Order Lounge highlights whiskeys not found on PA liquor store shelves.

 “We’ve been fortunate to work with so many great partners – the distillers themselves, the Phillies, Sugarhouse Casino, Victory Motorcycles, PLCB and so many more. It has been a collaborative effort to create this spectacular event that puts Pennsylvania and Philadelphia back at the center of the American Whiskey map,” Laura continues.

The event is sponsored by the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation to help promote the role that local small farming plays in the production of whiskey. The Delaware Valley Fields Foundation is committed to promoting the role and history of local small farming. Working together with farmers and other local non-profits, the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation helps bring attention to the vital role of small farming in our communities.
