Will Minnesota Survive World's Threatened Beer Supply?

Beer could get more scarce and expensive in the next few decades, according to a new study which explores global warming. 

According to USA TODAY, barley production will likely drop due to more frequent, severe draughts that come with the changing climate. The study says that the "average yield losses (of barley) range from 3 percent to 17 percent, depending on the severity of the conditions." 

This could take up to 900 million gallons of beer away from the United States, which is about 9 million bottles of beer. If we split that amount evenly among all 50 states, that would be taking 180,000 bottles away from Minnesota.
