Never Break The Chain

Got a couple stories about supply chain issues-something I’m sure we’re more and more familiar with.

First there’s the report about places in Canada having trouble getting beer from ports in San Diego. This was before the floods cut off B.C. and who knows what kind of supply chain issues (among other things) will result from that.

Closer to home, there’s this report on an aluminum can shortage that will have an impact on so many of the smaller breweries. Canning became a lifeline for them, when the pubs closed down and their sales model had to change.

That demand, of course, has made it’s way up the chain and now many of them are looking at price increases to canning that are likely to have a pretty nasty impact on the business model the breweries transitioned to.

All of this, of course, can be directly traced back to the global response to COVID-19, particularly amongst nations lead by right-wing factions-like America.

Sigh. Things didn’t have to be this bad.
