    From today's Calgary Sun: http://www.calgarysun.com/news/columnists/michael_platt/2011/03/08/17534981.html


    What they don't say in the article is that if the price of beer is supposed to go up (and UP), what will it do to the price of bread, buns, cakes, cookies and other products that are made with significant amounts of the same ingredients as what is put into beer?

    Caused by?

    Canadian beer...no great loss! :p

    American beer...OH NO-O-O-O!!!:eek: :D

    But seriously, how much of the shortage is due to farmers replanting fields to make crops for ethanol production for fuel?
