Alys Beach Crafted is
the newest of signature events to be hosted by The
Alys Foundation. Sprung from the successful debut of Firkin Fête in 2019,
Crafted celebrates the collaboration of talents, pooled from throughout
the Southeast, that come together to enrich the 30A (Scenic Highway 30A)
experience. Crafted tells the stories behind a refined collection
of craft beverages, culinary experiences, artistry, and workmanship.
Crafted will be a weekend of events here in Alys Beach, a gathering of food
& drink masters and renowned craftspeople from around the
region sharing the process, the inspiration, and the product of their
craft at the Makers Market, Cocktail Seminars, the Spirited Soirée and Firkin
Fête. Alys Beach Crafted is pleased to announce that all proceeds will benefit
a local non-profit focused on serving the food insecure in Walton County, Food
For Thought, 501(c)(3).
Schedule of Events:
Firkin Fête: Friday, October 1, 2021 from 6:30-9pm on Kelly Green
Join us for our 2nd Annual Firkin Fête on October 1st, 2021.
Firkin Fête features a unique tasting experience as we tap firkins of beer
created by local and regional breweries. The firkins, each an 11-gallon keg,
are unique in that no one, including the brewers themselves, can know what the
final product will taste like until the firkins are tapped for the event!
Firkin Fête will also feature live music performances and the culinary
creations of chefs from throughout the southeast. This festive evening is not
to be missed!
Spirited Seminars: Saturday, October 2 from 11am-1pm
The Spirited Seminars feature four opportunities to learn
from some of the best Mixologists in the industry. The seminars will explore
the art of the cocktail from the elements of tasting like a pro to special tips
for crafting the perfect drink for seamless, gracious entertaining.
Preparations, pairings, new craft ingredients and products – these renowned
Mixologists invite you behind the bar for a glimpse into the craft of creating
Spirited Soirée: Saturday, October 2 from 3-6pm Pedestrian Path
Spirited Soirée features craft cocktails from hand-selected

designated distilleries, to create the perfect cocktail. Guests will have the
opportunity taste the spirits both neat and in the curated cocktail, and will
hear from the distillers and mixologists on the inspiration and process behind
each unique pairing. Enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and spirits, and take home
some of the new concepts, trends, and products currently setting the beverage
The well-being of
