Beer: The Condiment With An Attitude!

Green Movement Might Make Beer Drinkers Blue

The price of drinking could climb as farmers who grow blue agave, the cactuslike plant used for tequila in Mexico, and barley for beer in Germany, switch to corn and other biofuel crops to meet growing demand for ethanol. Prices have already gone up for beer in Germany, and American beer could follow if barley production keeps declining here.

“If the beer companies and malt companies need it to make their products, they’re going to have to pay more,” said Kelly Olson, administrator of the Idaho Barley Commission.


First it was the rising price on tacos, now this. Oh the humanity!
