And now my beer tastes different?

Dollar in collapse, and the first tangible effect is…not enough hops in my beer?!? Turns out the combination of a poor hop harvest and lower US dollar means many US microbrews are having to change their recipes because they can’t secure enough hops. Oh the tragedy! I’m wondering what my favorite US IPA, Dale’s Pale Ale, will taste like this time next year. Details to be found in the CBC article in the first link.

    Now we have tragedy of a truly nature. We cannot, naye, MUST NOT sit idly by while the quality of our tasty beverages is undermined.
    This has all the makings of a billion man march on Washington DC. That’s right, I said BILLION!
    Who’s with me!!…?
