Bad weather, low harvest, less hop-growing land. Hops are going to be hard to find and be more expensive this year.

Grow your own!

Search... this topic has been covered quite a bit lately, since it's such an important issue to homebrewers.

The warehouse fire was LAST year's excuse.

There was a recent article about the fire that led some folks to think it happened recently...the fire was last October (like 10/2/06).

If you have a link, I would like to see it.

Well crud, perhaps I was fooled as well cause I can't find it either.

My mistake.
