The elegant and historically rich Museum of Archeology and Anthropologyat the University of Pennsylvania was a fitting backdrop for the 4th Annual American Whiskey Convention. History and whiskey have a long history in Pennsylvania. The infamous Whiskey Rebellion took place in the western end of Pennsylvania in 1794, when the young U.S. government began taxing whiskey to pay for the Revolutionary War, so it’s only fitting to set this premier whiskey event in the Keystone State. Now in its fourth year, the convention showcases premium whiskeys from throughout the country, as well as local vendors and craftspeople.
