Fellow brewers, we knew this day would come. We have been preparing for this day for centuries, and soon it will be time to once again save humanity:

Obviously no research behind it. The hop shortage has nothing to do with growing conditions and malting barley gets pushed out by more profitable crops or disease.
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!"

I'm prepared. 1/2 metric ton of Cascade, 80 tons of Pale, 20 tons of Vienna, and 1/2 ton of Crystal 10L. That along with millions of rounds of ammo.

Plenty of Haus Ale for all.

Bring on the zombies!

Lies spread by the wine industry!

And... big oil, somehow.

My fear isn't of a shortage of malted barley and hops(cause that's all B.S. anyway) but of zombies, so get me a homebrew so i can relax and enjoy my death or undeath. Whatever it may be.
