Something tells me, if you are reading this blog, there’s a small chance you may enjoy the results of fermenting and/or distilling grain.
If perchance you are among those who also enjoy their fermented grain products distilled, and might be able to be in the San Francisco area on or near October 16th, please check out the Malt Advocate’s Whisky Fest.
WhiskyFest San Francisco will feature more than 200 of the world’s finest, rarest, and most expensive, single malt and blended Scotch, Irish, bourbon, Tennessee, Japanese, Welsh, Canadian and other whiskies from around the world to sample in one Grand Ballroom. High-end rums, tequilas beer and other spirits will be represented as well.
There will be a bunch of axillary, (or is that ancillary?) events that week as well, including special dinners and parties at bars and restaurants.
In general, the best place to keep up with this sort of drinky information is on Camper English’s blog Alcademics. However, I will endeavor to post anything I find of note.
PS. As noted on Camper’s blog, Whiskyfest tickets are steeply discounted only until September 25th, so get them while they are hot.
