Nice! But believe it or not, if miller wanted to up their hop profile just a tiny bit, it would be felt throughout the entire industry. Check out the hop report section of the minutes of this MBAA meeting: http://www.mbaa.com/districts/Northwest/mash/Documents/2013-10-04_District_Business_meeting_minutes.pdf. During that time frame is when I contracted for my hop candy and my cost for Cascade went up 45% over what it was the year before. Was it because of Heineken, or some other factors? The big guys have a lot more connections within the industry than the little guys do, and can make their numbers come out close to the way they want. So when push comes to shove, the bottom tier will feel the pinch. The talk about a shortage is a real possibility.
