The troubles they are a-coming

So, a month or two or three ago, news of the hop shortage and barley price increases began to spread about. So far, very little in-your-face results have been felt, at least here in the States (I had to get leaf hops instead of pellet in November, but that was about it).
That’s not likely to remain the case.
Here’s a short but notable article courtesy of the Brooklyn Brewery website. And it’s not just NYC. We can expect changes probably after the New Year, I expect. The fellow at Asheville Brewers Supply yesterday told me that they’ll be coming out with a new products catalogue in the next couple of weeks — same products, higher prices. I won’t be surprised if 6-packs and pub draughts rise in cost as well. Just how much more homebrewing will cost, only time will tell.
