    I think this depends on the Mountain snowfall, the barley and hops crops. Also will a report come out saying that beer causes belching which effects climate change?

    If you take the worst case senario, I'm going with $24.97 per beer + a 3% pee tax.

    Thomas, thanks this is a great concern for me... the increase cost of the ingrediance already has created a 5% raise in price for Sam Adams passed onto the consumer.

    I get nervous because as a fine Beer drinker, I fear I will only be able to afford Schaffer

    I'm guessing it'll be a three dollar hike per twelve pack, at the very least.

    While enjoying this thread, I'm wondering --- is there some proposed MA tax in the news or something? Are you talking about beer at Gillette?

    If my Smithwick's goes up any more, it'll be cheaper to drink Exxon.

    One of the ingredients in beer (I forget which, hops, barley, something) has gone up exponentially in price recently.. causing beer pundits to suggest that a beer rate hike is on the way in the near future.

    Not enough to keep me from buying as many as they'll sell me? :( ;)

    I know we're north of the Mason-Dixon line, but a gentleman would be remiss to leave his flask unfilled on his nightstand...

    Due to an impending hurricane disurption to fuel production in the gulf and the rise in automobile use in China, gas prices will spike causing crop and production cost to go up. All of this means it will cost eleventy billion dollars and your first born.

    As long as the price of Jack Daniels doesn't go up, it matters me not.

    With oil hitting 88 bucks a barrel, you're worried about beer?

    I've never seen a less proactive administration for everything important except for war. Immigration, inflation, energy policy, infrastructure: NOTHING.

    War: Pull out all the stops to get rid of Israel's headache, a petty-assed dictator who couldn't hit the side of a barn with a duct-taped drone, but somehow threatened the world's only super power.

    If we put all that money into alternative energy R&D we'd lead the world in that technology, and be independent.

    Where is the quick buck for the old oil baron families? That's exactly why we're doing everything that we're doing, and beer will be one of a million items that will be largely unaffordable.

    But we'll still afford DU weapons to give the entire world cancer.

    Give to Dana Farber - that is the answer.
