I was at my local store the other day and they are limiting hops to 4 oz at a time and they are paying up to $30 a pound for certain hops. I am soooo glad I ordered 5lbs last fall. I may have to add a little more but I averaged $11 a pound when I bought mine. It will last me at least another year or more.

I have to admit I have no clue what Coors Banquet is, but just the Coors name with this quote made me laugh a bit....

The larger commercial brewers are better off. Most have long-term contracts for hops, barley and rice, and are doing whatever is necessary not to tinker with their brand names.

"Coors Banquet has been tweaked very little since it was introduced in the 1800s," says Molson Coors spokeswoman Jenny Volanakis. "We don't play around with our beers."


EDIT: After a 10 second search I see its just another name for Coors Original, so my laugh got a bit louder.
