Okay, I am druck. Here is some ramblings I have been hashing over for the evening. Be ye conspiracy theorist or budding movie producer. Make of this what you will.

Timeline: Present time.

In a time of ever increasing well made craft brew and even homebrew the entity known as the Beer Megamarketing Corparation is beginning to see its market share continually decline. In an effort to stem this tide, they slowly but surely begin to quietly buy up the farms and maltsters that produce the hops and grains needed for producing beers.

Phase one to stop this encroachment on their monopoly. What is perhaps the most crucial ingredient to this new well crafted beer that is detracting from their sales? Hops.

Phase one. Confiscate all the hop harvest and destroy it. Creating a higher price and a shortage thus shutting out those without the capital to pay. No big loss for a company who uses very little hops in their product.

Where will it end.... ????

Cue Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas. (eh?)

okay, talk amonst yerselves...

I think you've uncovered a plot that we've been following for some time. We here at the FBI( Fine Beer Institute) have been tracking the movements of the feindish BMC over the past few months. There have been developments in the areas of malt tampering and yeast depletion as well as an attempt by this organization to keep kegs out of the hands of homebrewers. They keep marking their kegs and claiming theft when one is commandeered for brewing. If brewing is outlawed, then only outlaws will brew beer ( or something like that. The PR Department is still working on that one.)
Brewers, join the Resistance! Quit drinking BMC, steal their kegs and make your own beer!

Not drunk, but I have had two cups of coffee.

does this mean in the near future you'll be able to tell who brews when you drive down the street by the hop garden in their backyard?
