The article reports on the impact of hops and malts shortages on the production at breweries in the U.S. The shortage of hops and malts has significantly affected the production of breweries because the production depends on varied amounts of unique malts and hops. Bill Hass, co-owner of Nimbus Brewery, states that the shortage has put a definite strain in the nature of the business and has caused prices for hops to increase by 600% for craft beers in 2007.
