Your pre-purchased ticket allows you to bypass the line for ticket sales on the evening of the event — there is a separate line for guests with advance tickets.

For General Admission and all other sales, please visit our online ticketing partner TicketDerby:

Your entry ticket permits you entry to the event (subject to the conditions below).

The tasting size is four ounces per taste. Your admission ticket comes with ten tastings. Only one four ounce taste will be poured at a time per person. (You must use the glasses or cups we provide. Our pourers will not fill any other cups or vessels.) Your ticket will be marked when you receive your glass and also each time you receive a taste.
