Midwest Distillers Fest

October 2 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Hard Truth Distilling Co. of Nashville, Indiana is pleased to present the 2021 Midwest Distillers Festival, an immersive craft spirits tasting experience that’s the largest and most unique event of its kind in the entire Midwest. This will be the third year for this one-of-a-kind event.

The Midwest Distillers Festival will return to the beautiful Hard Truth grounds in Brown County, Indiana. This destination venue features Hard Truth Distilling Co.’s world-class, award-winning distillery, an on-site Big Woods restaurant, the Hard Truth Tours & Tastings Center, multiple bars and cocktail lounges, outdoor recreational areas, and more on 325 acres of rolling, wooded hills.

The Midwest Distiller’s Festival will take place Saturday, Oct. 2, from 3-9 p.m., with a VIP hour from 2-3 p.m., on the Hard Truth Back 40 festival grounds — an outdoor area surrounded by native Indiana forest. Tents will house vendors, guests, and entertainers during this rain or shine event.

The festival will feature 15+ craft distilleries from across Indiana and the Midwest, offering more than 100 different spirits for attendees to sip and sample straight or to enjoy as part of a craft cocktail. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and get to know the craftsmen and women representing each distillery and to purchase to-go bottles from their favorite Indiana distilleries.

This event will also feature live music, food for purchase from local food partners, games, and more. A complimentary refreshment station featuring non-alcoholic beverages will be available to all attendees during the event.
