Ontario Farmers Turning to Hops?

There is a good story regarding the plight or rebirth (depending on your opinion) of hops in today's Toronto Star written by 'What's Brewing' columnist Josh Rubin.

Click here to read the full story as it appears on the Toronto Star's website.

It's worth the read as Rubin explains the reasons for the drought, the increased prices and what Ontario farmers and brewers are doing about it. The hop shortage dilemma is not new for those of us who follow the brewing industry closely, yet it appears that things might be starting to brighten, at least that is what I took away from the article.

It's an OK article with a rather stupid first sentence - the bit about turning to beer in tough times. In short: tough times=turning to beer=becoming an alcoholic. I drink beer when I'm happy. I actually don't enjoy drinking when I'm not (i.e. "tough times")
