Calling all whiskey lovers, a huge whiskey festival takes over the St. Pete Coliseum (535 4th Ave N) this Saturday, February 3 from 3pm-7pm. This celebration will include more than 200 different whiskeys to taste. General admission tickets are $90 and VIP tickets are $120, both are available online now! This is your chance to get a proverbial masters degree in fine spirits.

We highly encourage all attendees to use rideshare services like Uber/Lyft for this event. Let’s celebrate responsibly across the region.

Whiskey Riot is a large format tasting event complete with brand representatives who can answer questions, explain the nuances of what you’re tasting and leave you feeling armed with more whiskey knowledge.

General Admission ticket holders will receive a branded rocks tasting glass and be given full range of the venue to taste whichever whiskeys they desire. VIP ticket holders receive special access to limited edition and rare whiskies that will not be available for GA, an exclusive 1-hour uncrowded VIP time ahead of general Whiskey Riot start time, and an official branded tasting glass to take home.

“Sorting through this many whiskeys would require a prohibitively expensive investment in bottles were a whiskey explorer to pursue a tasting this vast on their own,” write the event organizers. “The GA ticket provides a pathway to finding your new favorite whiskey without breaking the bank.”
