Hops shortage

Postby aleguy » Tue Mar 08, 2011 1:13 pm

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like there is another hops shortage upon us. It seems that many of the major hop varieties are already sold out and we're not even through March yet.
I just got a call from Hops direct telling me that some of the hops I ordered were actually sold out as well as the ones I was looking for but did not order.
I read somewhere that there was a bumper crop last year. So was this information wrong? Or is there something else going on?
