On Saturday, October 13, and Sunday, October 14, the Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion transforms into a celebration of all things alcohol. In addition to trying free samples of spirits from more than 80 craft distillers, such as Farmer's Organic Gin and Gordon & MacPhail, attendees can nibble on a selection of catered snacks or purchase meals from local vendors.
San Francisco Craft Spirits Carnival
Independent and perennial craft distilleries take center stage during the San Francisco Craft Spirits Carnival. Across two days, more than 100 producers—including Outlaw Moonshine, Bulleit Bourbon, and St. Germain—pour samples for aficionados and curious customers alike to highlight the taste and texture of handcrafted whiskeys, gins, vodkas, mescals, absinthes, and spiked grape juice. The festival also works to expand knowledge of the alcohol arts through industry and consumer educational forums, dinners with spirits pairings, and a culminating two-day tasting event at the Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion. In keeping with its vaudeville-style carnival theme, the festival typically features live performances by fire-eaters, trapeze artists, and contortionists, who keep any self-proclaimed Twister champions from bragging all day long.
