Grains would be hard.

Hops would be easiest to corner and manipulate. Without hops.......

Already a tight market for some varieties....

Hmmm, this thread and the Homebrew Supply Shortage thread have me thinking there is a large scale A-B conspirecy to take over the homebrewing world...

Either that, or trucks are late and homebrewers are selling out. One or the other.

I have no doubt they'll screw it up though.
i wonder how much of the homebrewers orginal recipe will be tossed into the kettles, or if it will be budwieser with different hops...
A barrel of malt, a bushel of hops, you stir it around with a stick
The kind of lubrication to make your engine tick

never argue with an idiot, they'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

The beer isn't a risk for A-B. A 500-barrel batch of Ray Hill is a drop in the bucket for a company that shipped 102 million barrels of beer in the U.S. last year.
Ten or so gallons on AB beer for every man woman and child in America. Lord help us all. I wonder how much M and C produce?
