    JOE HERNANDEZ

    "A fair warning for your next trip to the liquor store: Several states across the U.S. are still experiencing booze shortages related to COVID-19, and it's unclear when supply will be able to meet demand.
    Early in the pandemic, it was common to find libations low in stock after some liquor stores briefly closed amid statewide lockdowns and skyrocketing consumer demand for alcohol.
    But continued reports of shortages from Vermont to New Jersey to Ohio persist more than a year later, and some states are rationing their liquor supply amid ongoing supply chain issues."
    ........
    "According to Ozgo and others, there are problems at nearly every step of the alcohol beverage supply chain.
    Some producers are struggling to source glass bottles. The cost to import liquor from overseas has shot up because of price increases in international shipping. And actually delivering booze to bars, restaurants and other vendors has been hampered by a shortage of truck drivers."

    No shortage of whiskey in Kansas so far, so I'm good.

    i just finished (yesterday) my last bottle of beer, that i bought in case form. (36 bottles)

    and i bought that case of beer, like 4 months ago.

    i don't think any liquor or spirits, or beer shortages will affect me all that much.

    we still have a full gallon of Livingston White Zinfandel, i bought before Christmas of last year.....(the wife makes wine biscuits, but she did not use the white like she was going to, she used the red, and i have like about just a bit more than half a gallon of that left too)

    i can survive any shortages.

    I’m pretty sure there’s a shortage now in AZ after five days at the house. The good news is they should have that worked out before I get back again.
