SteveFest starting lineup is announced – 2nd annual all-draft (YourNameHere)Fest begins on Friday, June 1.

As winner of this year’s (Your name here)Fest, NABC’s “consumer’s choice” beer festival, Steve Hall has presented the Publican -- that’s me – with the challenge of navigating the treacherous byways and backwaters of distribution and wholesaling to assemble his ideal draft lineup.

Steve Hall is the winner ... and SteveFest 2007 begins on June 1.

Many readers will recall that Steve took the unconventional approach of nominating choices within his favorite style categories.

Even though I helped vote Steve in as this year's winner, looking over the list that was put together for SteveFest, I know the right choice was made. This is getting close to Gravity Head (yes it is a smaller list) in quality and variety. Well done!
