Day Drinkers, Behold! First Annual “Spirits by the Bay Festival” Haunts the Ferry Landing this Saturday

He drinks a whiskey drink…he drinks a vodka drink…

Looking for something to do this weekend? A “spirited,” social event that incorporates the explosive combination of day drinking, mingling and live music? Look no further. The first annual “Spirits by the Bay” Festival comes to the Ferry Landing this Saturday, showcasing San Diego’s finest handmade concoctions from local distilleries. Sounds like a Beer by the Bay, but with hard alcohol. Sold!

“You won’t find any commercial spirits like Captain Morgan or Tito’s vodka here,” claims the event’s website. “The Spirits by the Bay Festival features a wide range of hand-made whiskey, vodka, gin rum, and much more from a variety of local producers.”

Revelers will enjoy sweeping Bay front scenery, awesome live music, nibbles from local restaurants and big plates from food trucks. And don’t forget the sips and samples from local distilleries!

The event runs 1-5pm, with early noon access for VIP ticket holders. Online ticket prices start at $45 and go up to $65 for a VIP ticket. (Ticket prices are higher at the door so be sure to get your tickets in advance!)

Put on by the San Diego Distiller’s Guild and Hearts for San Diego, this event won’t leave you stone-cold sober, so be sure to plan an Uber!
