"Current levels of fossil fuel consumption and Carbon dioxide pollution - business as usual - will result in this worst-case scenario, with more weather extremes negatively impacting the world's beer basket", said co-author Nathan Mueller. And that means some parts of the world would very likely be forced to pay much more for a beer.
The most popular alcoholic beverage in the world could become a lot more coveted. What will be the climate change impact on luxury essentials?

The effects of climate change are already being felt by craft brewers, says Katie Wallace, director of social and environmental responsibility at New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado. A decrease in the global supply of barley leads to a dramatic regional decrease in beer consumption and an increase in beer prices.
As beer supplies shrink, wealthy, traditionally beer-loving countries are likely to see the most drastic price hikes.
The next step was to estimate how these "barley supply shocks" would affect the production and price of beer in each region. This research, he said, was "born of love and fear".
