Re: Serious trouble ahead?

It's actually old news, it was mentioned a while back somewhere probably on good old auntie. I don't drink a lot of beer, but I will be disappointed if the price does go up.

Looks like it's time to hit the spirits and wine then.

Re: Serious trouble ahead?

Sounds OK in theory @Chris BUT after just one pint of wine I seem to get unsteady / confused / stupid - this never happens with beer.  And as for spirits... Wink

Re: Serious trouble ahead?

Ah you see, that's your problem. Don't bother with pints of wine, the bottle does the trick.

Bring back National Service with the squaddies tasked with planting and picking hops in Kent and Hereford.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Serious trouble ahead?

@AlaricAdair you obviously did not read the op`s linky.... it was caused by a dry summer last year... and it is europe wide. so all beer will be going up... even in Germany ! ..

Squaddies planting hops would do nothing to alleviate the problems caused by the weather.

Re: Serious trouble ahead?

If you double the acreage of planted vines it would counteract reduced yield.

Re: Serious trouble ahead?

Maybe so... but, you then have to factor in the increased labour costs to harvest, which probably nullifies any "gain" made by your aforementioned suggestion  Huh
