Crude oil prices are going through the roof. Gasoline pump prices are at record highs. Energy costs are on the rise. Transportation costs are rising. Grocery bills are increasing. All this is hitting the economy pretty hard.
But today… today I heard devastating news. News that makes me believe the end is nigh.
Beer prices are going to increase.
The price of barley is increasing because of transportation costs and other increases.
According to Sprecher Brewery, barley, which was $2 a pound has risen to $35 a pound!
I’m in shock.
My disgust for OPEC and the Oil Industry has risen to contempt.
And it’s time to start stockpiling!
