Listen up, boozehounds! This year, Pittsburgh has the honor of hosting the Distillers Convention and Vendor Trade show for the American Craft Spirits Association. This three-day event features speakers discussing business, sales and marketing and the more technical track of distilling; there will also be vendors from all over the country. The conference itself offers a deep dive into the industry, which means it's unlikely laypeople would want to attend for the nitty-gritty details. However, there are two public events for those who love a stiff drink.

On March 5, head to the Heinz History Center to clink glasses with fellow enthusiasts at The Pennsylvania Toast. Sample spirits made by more than a dozen Pennsylvania distilleries while wandering through the museum's new exhibit, American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition. It will be tasty and educational!

5:30 p.m. Mon., March 5
Heinz History Center
1212 Smallman St., Strip District

Threadbare Cider House and Meadery will host a talk by conference keynote-speaker Fawn Weaver about Uncle Nearest, the African-American man and former slave who is credited with teaching Jack Daniel how to distill whiskey.

6 p.m. Mon., March 5
Threadbare Cider House and Meadery
1291 Spring Garden Ave., Spring Garden
