Peak Oil And Global Warming Kicks Beer Drinkers In The Mouth

Now, now - I know that Russia's President has compared the current Missile crisis to that of the Cuban Missile Crisis, but let's not get too bent out of shape over Nuclear Armageddon just yet. The price of BEER is going to skyrocket? What!? Are you SERIOUS?!
Beer drinkers on high alert! Peak oil has arrived, and it is taking away your cheap beer.

Now, now - I know that Russia's President has compared the current Missile crisis to that of the Cuban Missile Crisis, but let's not get too bent out of shape over Nuclear Armageddon just yet. The price of BEER is going to skyrocket? What!? Are you SERIOUS?!

"I'm guessing, at a minimum, at least a 10 percent jump in beer prices for the average consumer before the end of the year," said Terry Butler, brewmaster at central Washington's Snipes Mountain. Fuel, aluminum and glass prices have been going up quickly over a period of several years. (Don't let the media convince you that ethanol is to blame for food price increases either. That load of crap has been completely debunked by David Blume.)

I absolutely have had enough. No more of this. The fuel revolution must come right now. We cannot let the price of fuel continue to oppress our access to fine, tasty microbrews, or even that cheap piss-water sold to us by the Beer Barons of the world.

No siree. I have had ENOUGH. The lack of quick global action to offset the impacts of Peak Oil must end right now. SAVE OUR BEER!
