Good point; I wouldn't doubt that for a minute. Makes me glad I planted Cascades three years ago. They are a nice mid-alpha hop and are very hardy. And I'm not in a hop growing region.

I bet you'll see a lot of people scooping up rhizomes this coming season!

That's kinda how I've been taking it. Yeah, it sucks that availability is changing, but it'll kinda force people to experiment more. It's a little lame that I chose to start brewing right as this shortage started, but hey, it'll get me into making my own recipes sooner than I would have otherwise!
