Hop shortage it's real. I have notice that a small amount of hops are starting to come in. Some shops are limiting sales to 4 oz and no more
Than 16 oz total not of the same variety. I do grown Cascade hops
And plan on planting Mt hood this year. If you are shopping for hops check
Your favorite Internet shops often, what does come in gets taken up quickly!

hops will cost a bit more, but I'll just brew the malty styles

I should be good for the next several months. I'll probably run out around the 3rd quarter - depending on how much I brew.
