Hops shortage hurting Indiana craft breweries

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Indiana farmers are struggling to keep up with the demand for a good brew.

With craft beers more popular than ever, farmers are struggling to supply enough hops, and many brewers are having to buy hops from out of state.

Certain varieties can sell for up to $15 per pound.

The National Brewers Association estimates the craft beer industry has an economic impact of $610 million in Indiana alone.
