Global warming is ruining good beer

The quality of Czech-grown Saaz hops (a key ingredient in pilsner lagers) has been decreasing in recent years as the air temperature increases. (New Scientist) So what, you hate pilsners, prefer German beers anyway? Well, "the famous hop-growing regions of eastern Germany and central Slovakia are facing the same situation."

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
