Last year I showed up to Kanye's debacle at what should have been 30-45 minutes in, and they were still serving. As we waited, and waited, and waited, they continued to serve. And although the night gets hazy as time goes, I am pretty sure I asked a vendor when they stopped, and he told me 30-45 minutes after the last act goes on stage. So the only good thing Kanye did for me last year, was allow me to stand there and buy booze until roughly 4:30-5 until we gave up and left.
I don't know how governed these vendors are by the TN Alcoholic Beverages Commission, which states that all locations in the state (except for those on Beale Street) must stop serving by 3 AM. IMO, though, if people are still buying, they will probably stay open.
A lot of distributors in TN, including those in Knoxville and Memphis, have picked up Fat Tire in the past year, which typically wasn't shipped east of the MS River. I wouldn't be surprised if it became an option this year, depending, of course, on the distributor(s) that serves Bonnaroo.
