Alys Beach Crafted is the newest of signature events to be hosted by The Alys Foundation on October 1 & 2, 2021. Tickets for the event will go on sale to the public August 1, 2021, benefiting Food For Thought.
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 in Alys Beach, a gathering of renowned craftspeople from around the region sharing the process, the inspiration, and the product of their craft at the Maker’s 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 Outreach.
Exhibiting makers, brewers, distillers, chefs, and mixologists will be announced at a later date.

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 Fete will also feature live music performances and the culinary creations of chefs from throughout the southeast. This festive evening is not to be missed!
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 beautiful cocktails.
Spirited Soirée features craft cocktails from hand-selected mixologists representing various markets within the region. We have paired the mixologists with 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 world a-buzz.
Join us in the Alys Beach Amphitheatre on Friday, October 1st from 3-6PM and on Saturday, October 2nd from 12-4PM for the Alys Beach Crafted Maker’s Market. These thoughtfully chosen artisans will present their works, showcase their craft, their inspiration, and their stories. Their products, representing the best in regional workmanship, will be available for purchase. Enjoy live music while perusing the Maker’s Market and explore the tastings, treats and refreshments available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.
