Due to a shortfall in ingrediant supplies (20% for some items), increased wages, manufacturing shipping and raw ingredient costs, the price of beer is going to rise!
What's next, cows go on strike and the price of milk goes up too!:cool: :D

I heard it was due to a shortage in HOPS..........However, most big companies like Anheuser-Busch will not be effected because they have their own fields........Micro breweries will be effected most...........:friday:

I found this:

A decade-long oversupply of hops that had forced farmers to abandon the crop is finally gone and harvests were down this year. In the United States, where one-fourth of the world's hops are grown, acreage fell 30% between 1995 and 2006.

It's barley and corn too.

Farmers are selling their crops for fuel instead of beer because fuel pays more.

A good friend of mine grows hops for a living and he is loving life right now. He sells to the big beer makers.

If they would just make E100 our problems would be solved! $3 a gallon seems pretty cheap!

I think it's odd that I stumbled on this thread this morning and I was coincidentally wearing my Bevo Fox t-shirt from Anheuser Busch. Maybe we will see old Bevo resurrected if prices get too high!!

Anyway, ...time to support your local Whiskey Distillery :-)

Much like the demand for gasoline, as consumption goes up and the beer wells are pumping less, the crude beer prices go up and, well..........................:D

I buy a keg about every 5 weeks and I haven't had any price change in at least a year. Maybe if you buy in volume you won't be affected that much.

E100 is his way of saying pure ethanol, which is what Everclear and other grain alcohols are. 198ish proof or roughly 99% ethanol molecules.

If this is sold with out any sort of denaturation it would need to be taxed as a beverage and then costs somewhere nearer to 30 bucks a gallon.

Where as if you denature pure ethanol with some gasoline you would have it for 3 bucks or so a gallon... But it is rendered toxic... as if it wasn't already.

Thanks for the help 190. I thought the 10% we currently add is stretching the available resources. I believe these bio-fuels will never do more than provide a small amount of our energy needs. Without the ridiculous subsides they would cease to exist tomorrow.

There is a significant net gain of energy when we explore and drill for oil, on the other hand bio-fuels are a break even proposition at best.


Say yes to cheap beer---- no to ethanol. :D :D

Tx, E85 has 15% gas to contaminate the drinkable ethanol. I think there is a difference of boiling points which may prove a problem someday.....

That's a shame Kent!!

We've been out all day today, and yesterday in Texas, and we're headin out tomorrow!!

Mind you it's 50's at night, and 60's during the day, but I'd rather freeze than winterize my baby!!

lol, Are you insinuating keep us drunk and keep us happy. :D

The few times I have had everclear are not very clear. :rolleyes:

There is a place in Austin that was supposed to have everclear in the margaritas, It did state on the menu there was a two drink limit without food. :rolleyes: We used to go there when I was in school in San Marcos, with no food on your stomach it was a cheap buzz! :D

I haven't notice my Natural light price going up any. Plus they redesigned the label and tastes much better now.

We live in the middle of hop growing country....farmers are thrilled. There have been a few unfortunate hop storage facility fires this year as well, which doesn't help. Best prices in probably 10 years.

Since I can't use the boat until April or so, I've decided to go with BEER! I'm hosting a beer tasting party this weekend at the house. I've probably got about $700 and about 50 different kinds of beer wrapped up into this so far. I just thought it'd be something cool to do this time of year. I've got lighter stuff in the 4-6 abv range all the way to 20% abv (Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA and Worldwide Stout) which is some serious butt kicking, and everything in between. I'm a huge beer geek, in case you can't tell, so I figured I could teach a thing or two about a thing or two. When you've got four months until you can hit the water again, you've gotta do something, right?

That'd be one helluva party! I don't think that I would have enough beer for all, though. I share the love, but not that much love! Maybe if I switch to Natty Light! Nah, I couldn't do that to you peoples! :D
