Will Rising Hops Prices Spark a Return to Malt-forward beers?

Everyone knows how IPA's, Double IPA's and Imperial IPA's seem to be dominating the taps--and the beer news-- these days. As I asked in the very first issue of NJ Brew magazine four months back, have we overdone the emphasis on hops?

Turns out, that very emphasis may actually be hurting craft brewers, especially the little guys. Check out this story.

And here's another.

So, Mr. or Ms. Brewer, are hops prices having a negative impact on your operation/product or not?

Cheers! The PubScout
