“Due to demand, we’re staying open until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and
have added Sunday,” said Cody Gray, one of two event organizers.

The 2013 hours will be 3 to 10 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday.

“We’ve also made the daily pass into a three day pass and kept the price the same at $21 for souvenir glass and 8 tasting tickets,” Gray said.

Those that order early online get a “real glass” mug.

The festival has added five more breweries for a total of 30 brewers and 60 brews to choose from. Wine fans will also be able to partake of a small selection of Clark County wines.
