Signs of the Apocalypse: A Lack of Barrels

As detailed in this post from Modern Farmer the high demand for used barrels, paired with an increase of craft distilleries and breweries, a lack of cooperages, and limited wood resources is creating a potentially catastrophic barrel shortage. Interesting stuff really.

It does sound like there is a bright light on the horizon, especially in regards to the use of more locally sourced wood. Also, who knew that in 2014 having Cooper skills in your resume could be a major selling point?
