Hard Truth Distilling Co. of Nashville, Indiana is excited to present the 4th Annual Midwest Distillers Fest — an immersive craft spirits tasting experience anticipated to be the largest and most unique event of its kind in the entire Midwest.

UPDATE 2021 Midwest Distillers Fest Canceled: Unfortunately, because of the recent increase in Covid cases the 2021 Midwest Distillers Fest has been canceled. The distillery will still be open the weekend of October 2 if you already made plans but the actual festival will not be happening.

This event will again take place on the beautiful grounds of Hard Truth Hills in Brown County, Indiana — a world-class destination featuring 325 acres of wooded hills, hiking trails and more.  Hard Truth Hills is also home to the award-winning Hard Truth Distilling Co., a brand new Big Woods restaurant, the Hard Truth Hills Welcome Center, and multiple bars and cocktail lounges.

This outdoor festival will take place on Saturday, Oct. 2nd, 2021 from 2-9 pm. The event will be held on the property, in the woods, underneath massive tents.  (VIP entry begins at 2pm, with General Admission entry beginning at 3pm).

The event will feature 15+ craft distilleries from across Indiana and the Midwest offering more than 100 different spirits available to sip and sample straight or to enjoy as part of a craft cocktail.

All VIP and GA attendees will be responsibly allowed UNLIMITED samples of all spirits and all cocktails during the event, plus a Hard Truth Distilling Co. tote bag.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and get to know the craftsmen and women from each distillery and even purchase to-go bottles from their favorite Indiana distilleries.
