“Come thirsy, leave happy,” was the tag line for the 2012 San Francisco Craft Spirits Carnival held this past weekend at Fort Mason Center. The event allowed people to “try & buy” a variety of spirits including mezcal, absinthe, whiskey, bourbon, vodka, grappa, and of course, tequila.

If that wasn’t enough to get you excited, there was also an edgy Vaudville-style carnival going on (one that only San Francisco could provide) right smack in the center of all the action.

The quality of the tequilas at the show was impressive. Being able to buy these tequilas on-the-spot through Cask was a huge plus, and we left with our arms full of delicious goodies!

We were also able to meet up with many tequila friends, including Richard Sorenson of Dulce Vida Organic Tequila, Marko Karakasevic of Charbay and Tequila Tapatio, Jose Torres Medina and Jesse Alderete of Alderete Tequila, Dr. Adolfo Murillo of Tequila Alquimia, Steffin Oghene of Olmeca Altos, Nicole O’Neill of Tequila Casa Noble, and Frank Mendez of Gran Dovejo Tequila.

Check out the pics Grover took, and look for reviews of many of these brands in the coming weeks! We can’t wait to dig into our new bottles and share the tequila love with you.
