One big reason, according to some brewers, is the rising cost of barley. A high demand for corn-based ethanol has many farmers devoting more fields to their corn crop and less to barley.

Damn you environmentalists!

It's because of the goddamn terrorists.

Brew your own, make new friends.
 
2007-07-05 11:37:27 AM
i better go and stock up then. only problem w/ that is i'll drink more because it's on hand. i guess that's not really a problem
 
2007-07-05 11:37:28 AM
I would also like to state "Brew your own".
 
2007-07-05 11:37:34 AM
I'm watching the history of beer on the History Channel. Beer is good. Beer is the mother of us all.

Holed by big corn.

Well it already costs 6 bucks for a bottle at a bar. The answer is simple, don't drink. It isn't doing anything for you anyway.
 
2007-07-05 11:38:38 AM
I brew my own beer, so I'm getting a kick... well wait, even ingredient prices went up for us.

/not going to make anymore for a while though
//doesnt want to turn into a beer-fattie

Sharpen your pungi sticks, boys, it's every man for himself.
 
2007-07-05 11:38:42 AM
I didn't notice any price difference in beer this 4th of July.

/DNRTFA
 
2007-07-05 11:38:52 AM
But if the price is up, then brewing your own means you have to buy expensive barley! NOOOOOO
 
2007-07-05 11:39:01 AM
This is outrageous! Well i guess i'll do my part and start rioting and looting in las vegas.

Brew your own! Homebrewers will also be hit by the barley price increase of course, but it's still cheaper than buying a microbrew and just as good!

Ok, here's how to get free beer, eh? Get a baby mouse and, like, put it in a bottle, and when it's so small it will fit in, like, this hole, eh?

In a related story, the sale of beer bongs dramatically increases.

Acutally, the answer is to not go to expensive bars (local watering hole has $4.00 pitchers), not stop drinking and be a pussy.

Beer prices going up?!?!? Guess I better switch back to moonshine!

Animals love beer! Whould you deprive these poor animals beer by raising the prices?

Would ya?

Growing more corn and less barley? I don't see how this would affect the price of 95% of American "beer"
