Is There a Beer Shortage in Europe?

The World Cup may be over but the beer shortage which was originally reported during the games is still going on.

While there are enough hops and barley in Europe, brewers are running short of carbon dioxide – the  gas used to make the bubbles in beer.

According to news reports, multiple CO2 plants around the E.U have been shutting down production in the early summer months to make repairs. The UK is going to be hit the worst, so if you love your beer, you may want to stay away.

The news is also bad for beer drinkers in the USA, where new tariffs are expected soon which will cause beer prices to rise.
