THE PRICE of beer could be rising, as the holiday season comes, because of a nationwide carbon dioxide shortage.

The shortage stems from a large underground Mississippi beer supply being contaminated by a volcano that’s been extinct for a long time.

The beer shortage is really reported to have started about a year ago after a problem with production plants following the COVID-19 outbreak.

The carbon dioxide issue has forced some businesses, including restaurants and breweries, that rely on gas to close in some parts of the U.S., CBS News reported.

Carbon dioxide is used to make beer and dry ice so, both industries are facing issues.

It’s so bad, in fact, that it’s led some microbreweries to close, CBS News reported.

Brewmaster Alan Upholster, who works at a brewery named Unity Brewery located in Unity Township, Pennsylvania, has shared that the problem has yet to affect the beer business in the area.

“It’s very important,” Upholster told a local CBS News affiliate.

“We use it to carbonate our beers and also to dispense our beers in the tap room,” he noted about carbon dioxide.

Unity Brewing has been brewing for 20 years and offers traditional-style beers year round though its menu regularly changes with new and unique beers, according to its website.

“We have a 750-pound tank that, between dispensing and the brew house, we’re getting that filled once a month,” The brewmaster added.

So, the problem hasn’t caused too much trouble with beer production everywhere just yet though carbon dioxide is surely crucial to the process.

It’s unknown of whether the shortage will reach across the nation though industry experts say that more will be understood by mid-winter, which is the peak of holiday season.
