Spirits will rise again at the West Overton Village and Museum from 6-9 p.m. Nov. 18, as the third annual Whiskey Smash is held at the historical village in East Huntingdon.

Celebrating local craft distilleries and the resurging popularity of whiskey and moonshine products, the party also is a fundraiser for expanding museum displays to contain a working distillery for educational uses.

Eight distilleries, including Disobedient Spirits, Red Pump Spirits and Wigle Whiskey, plan to serve samples and sell products.

Guests will enjoy desserts from Barton's Bake Shop and live music from local artist Mike Medved as they learn about distilling and sample various whiskeys, moonshine, and other spirits.

Food, raffle baskets, drinks and other activities will round out the “smashing” evening.

Attendees must be 21 or older. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets sell for $50 each and must be purchased in advance.

Details: 724-887-7910 or westovertonvillage.org.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
