The world is not likely to run out of beer anytime soon, certainly not before the PNA's annual Summer Beer Taste on July 19th (see below), but I wouldn't be surprised to see a similar headline on at least one of Seattle's daily papers any time now. (You know which one I referring to!)
Perhaps you've heard talk or seen the news that brewski is costing more moolah lately because of that darn bio-fuel! Well, like most things in the news, it isn't exactly so. For a reasonable assessment of this crisis (sorry… I'm writing like a journalist again!) you could do worse than to read this article in the June issue of Geotimes magazine. Be sure to take the poll "If the cost of beer went up, would you change what you drink?"
Personally, I'm walking to the beach this July 4th and taking a big, not-plastic, jug of tap water!
