2018 American Craft Spirits Association Convention: “Bridging the Future”

March 5, 2018 - March 6, 2018

Silver State Stainless Booth# 313

The American Craft Spirits Association (formerly called the American Distilled Spirits Association) was

established in 2013. It is the only national non-profit trade association whose mission is to elevate and

advocate for the community of craft spirits producers. The primary purpose of the ACSA convention

education is to assist members to develop, maintain, and grow craft distilleries that are prosperous in terms

of financial stability, safety, regulatory compliance, and the production of incomparable craft spirits. This

includes but is not limited to addressing production, safety, marketing, sales, distribution, regulation, and

best business practices. The overarching goal is to provide quality benefits and a sense of community to

members of ACSA. Four conventions have been held since the inception of the non-profit trade group.

Denver, Colorado hosted our first convention in March 2014, Austin, Texas played host to the second in

February 2015, Chicago, Illinois hosted ACSA in March 2016, and Nashville, Tennessee hosted our fourth

convention in February 2017. Generally, two full days of education are offered with concurrent tracks

running, representing over 30 individual sessions. The convention typically attracts hundreds of members

of licensed DSPs, suppliers, and vendors within the craft spirits industry.
