Those of us of taste and distinction, who enjoy our beer imported and dark, these coming days will be dark indeed — Booze industry experts have issued a chilling warning that the British pint could hit £4 a pop – a price hike provoked by crap weather which has forced up the price of hops.”
And this: “To underline the dire state of affairs, Scottish & Newcastle — responsible for three of Europe’s top ten beers including Foster’s and Kronenbourg — today confirmed price increases in 2008 ‘way above the rate of inflation.'”
It’s bad enough that the President’s insane economic policies have led to a hellishly weak dollar, making Guinness more expensive anyway. And now, this.
In the immortal words of Bart Simpson, “This both sucks and blows.” :/
