First it was hops and the hop shortage a few years ago. Now it seems that barley is going to conspire to raise the price of your favorite beverage - beer.
According to a study commissioned by Molson Coors, farmers in Britain are blaming a lack of rain for a poor barley crop. A full 94 percent of 259 farmers surveyed said the dry weather has impacted the barley crop. 40 percent said the dry conditions had a very profound negative affect on the crop. The Molson Coors study found that two thirds of Britain's arable farmers were affected.
