We do need to be worried! (Beer Shortage)

For the past two weeks i have noticed there is no beer on the shelves or in the coolers at the big box and grocery stores. No deliveries have been made to restock…what is going on? Is there some nationwide shortage or just a local thang?

Now i used to think that i was cool,
drivin' around on fossil fuel,
until i saw what i was doin',
was drivin' down the road to ruin. --JT

I web-read somewhere that there’s a burgeoning carbonated water shortage due to lock downs having affected supply lines.

Hard to believe even if true. I mean a carbonation shortage? Shocked

You might worry less if you can make your own Smile

Admittedly, I still can’t make some favorites,, like Miller lite, but I have tried some fermentation.

Rather fun – Reminds me of a grade school Chem project, but you can drink it.

Miller lite is easy! You find a beer you like, cut the grain bill by 75%, add some rice and you’re done!

Seriously though, I haven’t seen any shortages there yet but I would be worried if I did.

Here’s one article that addresses the upcoming Co2 shortages. Beer consumes 14% of all Co2 produced.

Maybe things haven’t been fully Co2 resolved yet besides other beer related material shortages.

A perfect beer storm? Yikes! I can mostly handle shortages butt beer shortages? Oh, man. This could be serious. Facepalm Beer Shocked

Of course the glue comes from China. I thought horses went to Canada to be slaughtered. Are Canadians hoarding glue? Is the border still closed to horses? Can’t they close the boxes with duct tape? Next they will tell us there is a duct tape shortage. Is it 5:00 o’clock? Pssst. Yup.

Us Canadians have been building our reputation for niceness for decades becasue we knew one day something like covid would come along and we would exploit it for all the tea in China.

Make that all the glue in China Big Smile

No shortage of any alcohol here besides maybe scotch and sake. Saw beer available, but I prefer rum/whiskey esters over the pisswater and it gets you drunk for 1/3 the price.

Sodas were pretty well stocked in all stores.

I only like high CRI. Collection:

Fireflies NOV-MU 21 4500k E21A

Fireflies ROT66 219B SW45 D220

Fireflies E07 Copper 219B SW45k? (odd/higher lumen bin with lower r9 and higher cct?)

Fireflies E07 219B SW45k

Fireflies E07x Pro sst20 FA4 4000k 

 

Varmint removal:

Convoy M21A C8 ver SST20 4000k (5a)

Convoy S2+ SST20 4000k  FB4 (3200ma)

Memes:

BLF GT94

Emisar D18 660nm SST20

no shortages in ny either.

anyone tried kasteel rouge? that one i can only find in few bars, it tastes like sweet cherry soda, no taste of bitterness or alcohol whatsoever, something you’d never suspect is a beer, yet it is 8% by volume in bottles, can’t find it anywhere in stores, that is the only beer that is in short supply here,

BeerMenus.com has an entry for Kasteel Rouge.

Enter your location and it’ll list local places that sell it. Good luck!

There is no way there is a beer shortage. All day long I see people loading their vehicles with cases of beer.

Still empty into the 3rd week. No Mexican, Heini, Yuengling, etc., although there is a small block of red white and blue stuff at the far end.

Maybe someone in delivery ops went on vacation and nobody is there to cover for him..?

No shortage in the Pacific NW so far, but prices are up.

If the shortage does reach us, I have a fallback plan. A micro-distillery opened a block away from my house this year. They’re young and for the moment just using wood chips to age their whiskey, so I don’t even need to worry about about a barrel shortage.

On a positive note, all the restaurants and bars being closed down last year led to a lot of good craft breweries that previously used to only distribute in kegs starting to can their beer.

Running out of CO2? Now there’s an unexpected twist to the global warming debate!

Just kidding. Please don’t hurt me.

I work at a top 10 craft brewery in production. We have been ramping up production the last 2 months. Plenty of packaging/ glue/ cans/CO2. If any of those shortages are going to affect us it hasn’t happened yet.

Different strokes I guess. Never have a good time with spirits. Maybe it was from marching in the Army to…
