The Pub with No Beer Annual Festival 2013 is the 70th anniversary of the "Pub With No Beer" legend which saw a convoy of American soldiers from Townsville drink Lees Hotel at Ingham [then the Day Dawn] dry! Local Dan Sheahan rode in for a "coldie" and could only get a warm glass of wine! He was so upset that he penned a poem, "The Pub Without Beer" which went on to become Slim Dusty's ,and Australia's, very first world-wide No1 smash hit, "The Pub With No Beer".
