My neighbor Jef Lambdin travels a lot and brought me a newspaper article about climate change and its impact on barley.
The article states that if barley becomes harder to find because of world wide droughts the price of beer will increase. That is not a good thing for a lot of my friends.
On Saturday October 13 I attended the North Carolina State Fair with 121,111 other people. Part of our visit was to an exhibit called Our State Public House.
We paid $10.00 and got to sample some North Carolina Beers or wine. Each beer we tried was a winner in the 2018 NC Brewers Cup sponsored by NC Craft Brewers Guild. A complete list of winners can be found at this link.
Hope the price of barley remains stable until I can try many of these North Carolina beers especially from some brewers who are doing good stuff like Bombshell Beer Company Hopfly Brewing Company Wise Man Brewing and Crystal Coast Brewing
