Great Time to Start a Brewery

More news about hop shortages, this time via an NPR story this morning
Give a listen here
I have grown some hops the last few years as a homebrewer, but have placed
an order for a whole lot more of various hop rhyzomes to plant in Spring 2008
for cultivation and use.
It may take a second season before I have a decent yield, and even then -- even at
my small scale of brewing -- I'll likely need to purchase hops.
There might be a bit less of the hoppy Long Island Pale Ale 2 than I had hoped.
