Hop fire! This is Bad!!!

My first reaction to this story was:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/10/03/hop....ap/index.html

YAKIMA, Washington (AP) -- Federal investigators were set Tuesday to begin an investigation into a fire that ruined about 4 percent of America's yield of hops, used as flavoring in the brewing of beer and ale.

John thank you so much for sharing the details about the fire.

I hope the price of beer doesn't go up since the fire ruined about 4 percent of America's yield of hops which are used as flavoring in the brewing of beer and ale.

Thank you again for letting us read the whole story.

When I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes more than 10 years ago my doctor and pharmacist both warned that I should not consume any alcohol due to a contraindication with the meds I am taking. I've been faithful to their orders ever since so I don't get to enjoy the smooth and refreshing flavors of the golden foamy brew.

I do miss the taste of hops. I wish that hops were a spice and could be added to recipes to lend that bitter yet satisfying flavor to foods that it imparts to beer.

While I cannot share in your joy I feel your pain.

I meant their joy at being able to savor the satifying brewed delight.
