Here’s Everything You Need to Know About Whiskey Fest

Our celebration of fine spirits from absinthe to vodka takes over Lincoln Financial Field on October 26th.

Philaelphia Magazine’s Whiskey Fest is coming up  — but this blowout isn’t just about delicious brown liquor.

On October 26th, guests will have the chance to taste more than 300 varieties of fine spirits, including whiskey, bourbon, cordial, gin, scotch, tequila, rye, rum, and vodka, at this celebration of the hard stuff at Lincoln Financial Field.

In addition to national and international brands, local distillers like Dad’s Hat Rye, Palmer Distilling, Philadelphia Distilling, Manatawny Still Works, and Rowhouse Spirits will be sampling their wares. Check out the full list of spirits here.

But hard liquor isn’t the only thing to get excited about: Philly restaurants are getting in on the action, too. Check out the list of confirmed restaurants below.
