According to the WSJ, AB InBev is cutting way back on their hop purchases and going even more towards hop extracts. This will put even more pressure on growers of aroma hops to switch to high AA bittering varieties. Most likely we will see low prices this year, but next year prices will start back up.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
