Cigar City head brewer concerned about raw material supply

Echoing recent comments from Pipeworks’ brewer

I am worried that the industry won’t be able to support all of the new craft breweries that are in process of opening or recently opened. The issue isn’t that there aren’t enough consumers of beer or demand but rather raw material supply. We are already allocating for hops years in advance in order to make sure that we can continue to produce our core brands. Word on the street is that the same might happen soon with grain supply.

Head Brewer, Wayne Wambles, also revealed that Cigar City will be collaborating with Mikeller, B Nektar, Blue Jacket, and Funky Buddha.
