There was a study in Nature Plants ( https://www.nature.com/articles/s41477-018-0263-1 ) that even made a couple of the late night shows. "Climate Change Threatens Beer Production & America’s Projected $1 Trillion Deficit | The Daily Show" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBCHcnvwfzA and "Trump Brags About His 'Natural Instinct For Science'" around 3:45 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQeylLZNblE

It'd be great to have both large and smaller local breweries come up with solutions to this problem. While making hardier barley that can survive climate change using directed evolution and gene editing may be one solution, hopefully the solutions will focus on the bigger picture and try to help tackle the root problem.

Thanks Tomokazu for sharing these links and know that the Brewer's Climate Declaration (https://www.businessclimateleaders.org/us-brewers-declaration) is working on just that if you'd like to get more involved!

Brett,
This is GREAT (although the audio is low), but why isn't it on the Endorsement web site or on Endorsement Map. I don't see Garden Brewery. Maybe I missed them...
I want to send this video to some fence sitters I have in St Pete and see if I can get them to move to endorse. But I want them to see Garden has endorsed HR763

Bill

I see it. Good, this happened to me with one small, sole owner brewer here. I also see it on the map now, but no mention of the Garden Brewery on the map. I think the team should correct that so the map shows the brewery's name. Otherwise it is much much harder to find.

Thanks Bill Marshall‍ for the excellent question - I'm not sure why, but this endorsement is listed under Individuals -search for Andy Tveekrem the owner :)
