Not only that but hops and barley prices are through the roof.  There's 
a worldwide hops shortage going on, not only are hops triple to 
quadruple what they went for last year, you flat can't find the 
varieties you want anymore because they're not available at any price. 
Barley prices have nearly doubled too.
It's a bad year to be a homebrewer.  I brew every two weeks normally (I 
brew for a lot of friends events, bbq's, wedding receptions, retirement 
parties, etc) and I'm hurting this year.  Won't be brewing nearly as much.
Seems like *everything* is going way up in cost.

Gary,
Do you happen to know why hops are in short supply? Rise in demand?
Bad hops-growing weather? Something else?
