Vote now for the 17th and final Gravity Head starter.

Every slot in the 2007 Gravity Head starting lineup has been filled, save for one.

The 17th starter is a “fan selection,” to be chosen by you from the list provided below.

Vote for just one, and submit to your choice to me at this e-mail address before Noon on Thursday, March 8. Please vote just once per person. Be sure to take note of the status of each beer as reflected in the following lists. Some are starters, and others already are designated to appear on specific dates. Some are in-house and eligible for “fan selection” votes, while others remain in transit.
