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.
