Soaring costs hurting brewers
BEER From Page 1A
it'll be difficult for anybody to not
pass those price increases along."
Since the big breweries are first
in line to receive available crops
because of their large-scale con-
tracts, microbreweries could soon
find themselves inthe dust.Brewers
might have to tweak recipes or even
temporarily discontinue certain
brews that require more hops than
others, Bell said.
"I think you'll see some brands
with breweries that'll go out of pro-
duction as this year comes along
because the hop crop doesn't come
in," Bell said.
While Arbor Brewing Company
isn't changing the recipes of exist-
ing beers, the brewery is concocting
some new ones, Rene Greff said.
Williams said Grizzly Peak has
already had to substitute certain
hops depending on which ones they
can attain, but that the changes
haven't affected the beer's taste.
Grizzly Peak's crop contracts
have helped them hold off any price
increases, Williams said, butthey're
absorbing some higher costs them-
selves for right now.
"The very absolutelastresortis to
raise prices," said Chris Carrington,
general manager of Grizzly Peak.
Once existing contracts with
suppliers expire, though, both
brewers and consumers will likely
"From what I've heard from
most of our beer representatives
and brewers that I've talked to, beer
prices won't go up yet, but they will
sometime later this year," said Car-
men Fernando, the general manager
of Ashley's Restaurant and Pub.
Fernando said Ashley's is trying
to stock up on the beers they think
will be hit the hardest by price
increases to avoid charging custom-
ers more. Though "hoppier" beers
will face the stiffest price increas-
es, Ashley's will continue to serve
them, Fernando said.
"As long as consumers are willing
to understand the hop shortage and
the effect that it's having on beers,
we'd still carrythem," she said.
Boggard said the recent increase
of the price of beer means he doesn't
buy as much of it as he used to. He
frequents Arbor Brewing Company
because he likes the taste and quali-
ty of local brews, he said, but at some
point the costcwill be too much.
"If pints get over four or five dol-
lars, I'mnotgoingtobuyabeer out,"
he said. "It's just too expensive."
Breweries and economists alike
still don't know when the shortages
will subside - if they subside at all.
"I'm not sayingthey'll stay quite as
high astoday, but they're notgoingto
drop back to where they were a year
ago and two years ago," Hilker said.
While Hilker said he doesn't
think the demand for corn will drop
soon, he said the bolstered prices of
wheat and hops should bring more
farmers back into the market.
In the meantime, though, college
students who enjoy a quality brew
aren't likely to sacrifice premium
taste for a more affordable beer.
"Beer is a small luxury," Bell said.
"Whenthings aren'tthatgreat, buy-
ing a six-pack of craft beer is cer-
outcry of "80 to 90 percent" of
graduating students to make
University officials rethink
their decision. Last week, Uni-
versity officials said they would
reconsider the Big House as a
possible location for the gradu-
ation. Other venues under con-
sideration include Rynearson
Stadium, Crisler Arena and the
Previously, University offi-
cials said it wouldn't be pos-
sible to hold commencement
at Michigan Stadium because
the construction would make
the stadium's public bathrooms
unusable and would restrict
access to many of its gates.
Among the people who will
analyze the surveys are three
graduate and undergraduate
students chosen by Michigan
Student Assembly President
Mohammad Dar, along with
officials from the Provost's office
and the President's office.
The survey doesn't say when
a decision will be made about a
From Page 1A
where they want to live for the
next school year by the fall of the
year before. But both students and
landlords have criticized of the
waiting period saying it compli-
cates the rental process and wors-
ens the housing rush immediately
after the period ends.
Michigan Student Assembly
President Mohammad Dar, who
also serves on the City Council's
Student Relations Committee, said
that shorteningthe waiting period
would benefit students.
The original ordinance posi-
tioned the housing rush during
finals in December but the new
shorter period will move the hous-
ing rush to before finals, Dar said.
Dar spoke before City Council
about the waiver loophole before
the vote took place last night, say-
ing it was "taken far beyond its
original purpose." The waiver
was originally intended for stu-
dents who knew they would not be
returning next year, like graduat-
ing seniors, but both students and
landlords have offered tenants
incentives to sign the waiver, like
money or free apartment clean-
"It turned into an item that
was abused from both aides of the
table," Dar said.
Dar also voiced his support for
this simpler and "mutually benefi-
cial" version of original ordinance.
"It keeps its spirit intact, while
hoping to improve its longevity,"
The revisions were part of a
scheduled review, which was spec-
ified when the ordinance was first
passed in March 2006. The coun-
cil's Student Relations Committee,
which includes Dar and four other
students, proposed the revisions
earlier this fall, Dar said.
No one spoke during a pub-
lic hearing reserved to discuss
the ordinance during last night's
City Council member Leigh
Greden (D-Ward 3), who chairs
the Student Relations Committee,
said the changes have broad sup-
"There is no active opposition to
this in the community," he said.
The ordinance is not scheduled
to undergo any further reviews.
