Beer Prices Going Up

Postby Henry Vilas » Sat Dec 15, 2007 3:21 pm

Good beer, that is. The cost of ingredients for beer, especially ales, has greatly increased recently. Everything from hops (especially the better ones) to glass bottles. Large breweries have locked in costs, but the micros are really feeling the pinch.

I like to get my IPA from the Zuzu Cafe, which is close by, locally owned, and has a good selection at great prices. Used to be $6.99 for a sixer (which even beats Woodman's), but they just raised it to $7.49. Still better that Woody's for some, such as Tyranena.

Anyone else notice a price increase?

No, maybe because I get my beer from the basement.

Wait until our legislators raise the beer tax 5-fold, then you'll notice the prices are going up. Get ready, it's coming.

bad hops season, corn pushing out other beer friendly crops, taxes...I blame it on the man
