The first 2,500 people through the gates receive a commemorative sampling glass. Sampling tickets are included in the admission. There will be water available to clean your glass between sampling.
Make sure you drink plenty of water. Summer events can get very warm in the afternoon heat and with the cornucopia of alcoholic beverages that surround you, one often forgets to keep hydrated. You will appreciate proper hydration as the day goes on and especially the next morning.
