Gravity Head 2006 update: 6 down, 48 to go.

Listed below are the Gravity Head groupings as of Wednesday afternoon, March 1.

Of the 54 beers scheduled to appear between opening day and the conclusion of this eighth edition of the festival, six have departed. 18 currently are on tap, including the hand pull. Others are stacked and ready to make their appearance, while some remain in transit.

On Friday, March 3, the second of two JW Lees Vintage Harvest Ale pins will be pouring, but there has been a change.

Owing to a shipping error, the most recent vintage of Lagavulin Scotch aged ale remains in a New Jersey warehouse. We received instead a Sherry aged specimen, which we're happy to drink now, leaving the previously announced pin for aging until next year's festival.
