Is the SF Whiskeyfest the same or different from the one in Chicago, in April, or the one in New York, in the fall? I haven't heard of the one in SF. http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

If it is different, who sponsors it and is it all whisk(e)y or only bourbon whiskey?

Thanks, for the link.

I, actually, have heard of this one. The term "Whiskeyfest" caught me off guard. The SF one really has a different name.

It is, anyway, too far for me to go and sounds like it specializes in S****h or Irish stuff. I go to the WhiskyFest in Chicago, for the bourbon tastings, not the S****h.

If you are going to SF, have fun! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif

The Whiskey Expo is primarily scotch distillers and drinkers, but the bourbon people are there in force.

Wild Turkey, Heaven Hill, BT, MM, McKlain and Kyne, Van Winkle, Michters, Bulleit, Four Roses, Beam ... they all come.

That is why I like Whiskey Fests... I get to drink great bourbon AND meet the master distillers. Best times I ever had with my clothes on and without breathing hard! http://www.straightbourbon.com/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif
