Gravity Head lineupdate for Friday, March 14.

Updated 5:27 p.m.

Two more Gravity Head listed selections floated on Thursday. The big news today on Day 13 of Gravity Head 2008 is the tapping of Regenboog 't Smisje Harvest Ale ('t Smisje Kerst aged in a 5-gallon JW Lees Calvados wooden pin) from Belgium, one of only three pins shipped to the United States, and the single most expensive beer we've ever served on draft.

Non-gravity items of interest include Schlenkerla Fastenbier, the Brauerei Heller-Trum's special annual Lenten smoked lager, and a firkin of cask-conditioned WinterCoat Vildmose (Denmark; 5.8% abv), a brown ale with a touch of peat smoke, and spicing that includes bog myrtle and rowan berries from a nature preserve near the brewery.
