Premier sponsor of the 2013 festival is the Delaware Wine & Ale Trail, created by the Delaware Tourism office to promote Delaware's growing wine and beer industry.  It is a unique collection of more than a dozen locations throughout the state that welcome and educate visitors about the production of Delaware wines and brews.

VIP tickets for homebrew sampling and voting are an additional $5.  The first 500 ticket buyers will also receive a free keepsake wine or beer glass.  Designated driver (non-tasting) admission is $10.  Full pours of wine and beer will be available for sale along with non-alcoholic beverages and food provided by local restaurants.

The event will be held rain or shine, and will be moved inside the museum in case of poor weather.  To purchase tickets, visit or call Kent County Tourism, 302-734-4888 or 800-233-5368.
