The walk starts off at either of the two above mentioned venues, where you present (or purchase) your ticket  and receive your “official” Wilmington Wine & Beer Walk ID along with a map of the participating establishments. As you walk through downtown and stop in at the various locations you will receive two superb samples (per venue) of a specially selected wine or beer.

You must be at least 21 years of age and have a valid ID readily available for your host to verify your eligibility for participation.
