Microbrewers' prices going up

For some reason, I have taken an interest in this idea of home brewing. I haven't started doing that yet, but watching a video from this blog Wandering West Michigan showing a store where one can pick out particular beers in addition to buying ingredients to make beer.

I see this video from Crain's talking about how area microbrewers are having to adjust prices because beer ingredients such as wheat, hops, and barley have increased. I was talking to a friend who suggests that perhaps they could grow their own hops. It could be cheaper that way.

Oh and for your vocabulary pleasure microbreweries can be exchanged for craftbreweries.
