157 Episode 39. Beer Bubble (3)

Still, perhaps because of the beer’s cheap image, the brewery owner was skeptical of Joshua’s words.

“However, the fact that nobles drink beer instead of wine… … I can’t quite imagine. Recently, there have been inquiries from nobles, but it must be a very temporary phenomenon.”

The brewery owner knew beer better than anyone.

It’s crazy that someone bought all the beer you made right now.

If we will soon be able to produce that much beer again, who will give it a scarcity?

“Beer is just a favorite food of ordinary people.”

Joshua only thought to himself at the words of the brewery owner.

‘It used to be, but not now. At least not until the point I solve.’

“Anyway, there seems to be no beer. All right.”

After leaving the brewery, Joshua toured a few more breweries in the area.

Fortunately, some places were out of reach of hoarders, so it wasn’t difficult to get beer. And because of what I’ve heard before.

Joshua later started hoarding barley and hops as well.

They swept away the beer they had at every brewery they stopped by, and the ingredients for producing that beer.

* * *

A few weeks after the beer hoarding began.

Now seeing beer in the Empire is as difficult as picking a star in the sky.

As a result, the price of beer, a favorite food of ordinary people, skyrocketed, and the price rose up to five times the original price.

“No, no beer?”

“Because there is no Just drink wine or some other drink. How about rum?”

“under… … No, how come you don’t have beer?”

People whose only pleasure was to stop by a tavern after a day’s work and drink a glass of beer could not help but be embarrassed by the beer shortage.

Beer, which was readily available only a few days ago, is now more precious than water.

“Isn’t there really?”

“No, you know everything has been missing since a few days ago, right?”

“What the hell is the brewery doing? They don’t even sell beer. You said the beer price went up?”

“That is more of a problem. As the price of beer rose, these breweries suddenly didn’t sell beer and began to collect it. ”

“What? The brewery doesn’t sell beer?”

The tavern owner seemed to have heard a story recently, approached him and whispered in his ear.

“It seems to be difficult to find even the ingredients to make beer in breweries these days.”

“What do you mean?”

“You know it too. To make beer, you need barley and hops.”

“You know that.”

“But it looks like someone swept away those ingredients along with beer. So the brewery owners are screaming that they can’t make beer even if they want to.”

“Then you can’t make and sell beer, what do you mean?”

“There are things like that, but rather than that, the price of beer jumps up overnight. These bastard brewery owners are starting to stop selling beer. lets think. When you wake up the next day and beer prices are skyrocketing, what crazy brewery owner would sell beer? I keep it and sell it when the price goes up.”

You will hear stories like this in the world.

People who tried to shake off today’s hardships with a glass of beer were just ridiculous.

“That’s it, fart.”

“Anyway, beer is more expensive than this rum, so why not just drink rum?”

People who didn’t have that choice ended up drinking rum instead of beer.

“Hey, what beer is that price? I’d rather drink rum at that price. Give me a glass of rum or something. Drink and get up.”

And this phenomenon was not just the story of ordinary people without money.

Even among the aristocrats, those who found it difficult to obtain beer began to brag about it to other nobles by going to social clubs with it.

“Isn’t that a beer that commoners don’t even drink?”

When an elderly nobleman expressed his displeasure at the other nobleman who served him beer, the person who brought the beer laughed bitterly.

“You don’t know. It is very difficult to find this beer these days.”

“What do you mean? It’s hard to find beer.”

“They said they didn’t sell it at the brewery, but even if they sold it, the price had risen five times. No one knows what will happen again tomorrow. The price of beer keeps going up, and because it has become so rare, some say it’s worth the price.”


At first, it was a favorite food of ordinary people who did not even look at it.

As this became rare, even the nobles began to change their thinking about beer.

“Wow! Where can we have a drink? I need to experience the common people for a long time.”

“Let’s have a drink. Oh, and this is a story I heard somewhere. Beer is said to be really good to drink cold enough to make a thin ice. It is said that it is amazing how it pops out of this throat.”

Hearing this, the nobleman, who had been drinking beer, was intoxicated with the banquet of carbonated beverages that followed, and involuntarily wrinkled one eye.

“Wow, this is my first taste, and the taste is different. I usually drink more alcohol than this. There’s a lot of stuff like this, isn’t it?”

“That’s why women like it so much. Women don’t drink strong alcohol, do they?”

“Oh, was there such a thing?”

“Still, it’s because I’m drunk. If you eat one or two cups at a time, you will feel a little bit better. It’s like a prom, so it’s perfect for going to work.”

“okay? That’s interesting.”

The nobleman who drank a glass of beer and watched it carefully asked the nobleman who served it.

“How much is this? I think it would be fine if I bought a few.”

“Haha, did you have any interest you didn’t have?”

“How much do ordinary people’s drinks cost even if they are expensive? I’m just going to buy some out of curiosity.”

“But it won’t be that easy.”

“What do you mean? Isn’t it easy to get this?”

“Did I tell you before? This is what saving is called picking stars in the sky.”

“What do you mean? Isn’t this just what you get when you go to a brewery?”

At those words, the nobleman who served beer shook his head.

“Oh my gosh, it’s a no-brainer. If anyone could go to the brewery and get it easily, would I have treated it like this? And if that was the case, the price wouldn’t have gone up like this.”

The other side began to be curious about the story that it was not easily available.

“That is interesting. It is a drink that is not easily available for ordinary people… … .”

“I heard that this was because the war with the dwarves was getting closer and there was a temporary shortage.”

“But what is the background? War with Dwarves? Who else do the dwarves go to war with?”

“Did you not know? That Montefeltro estate. Gold ore was recently discovered there, but wasn’t that the land of the dwarves in the past?”

“Oh, did that happen?”

“Yeah, that’s why people said that beer prices went up because of that, in case Dwarves might attack. I don’t know if you’ve heard of it, but since the Dwarves are so wealthy, where does a war take place, where do they not get supplies from that region?”

“It is.”

“They have similar eating habits to ours, so it’s like food. As such, the rarer things like beer become, the more difficult it will be for dwarves to buy them. So prices are skyrocketing.”

“haha… … .”

The more I listened, the more interesting it became.

“So you don’t have beer at all now? To the extent that Mr. Beer dries up?”

“That’s right. At least that’s what I’ve been told that getting beer has become so difficult. So recently it has become a new trend for people like us to serve each other this precious beer.”

The first of the fashionable nobles.

Always be sensitive to fashion.

Said the nobleman who reminded him of this.

“no wonder. I thought someone was playing a joke on me because they kept coming over for a beer. But that wasn’t it. Beer is going to be so precious.”

“If there is any that I can get around, I would like to ask you a favor. Every time this happens, the price changes, so I’m intrigued.”

“Is this like a new investment?”

“Well, for now, I think so.”

“Hahaha, that’s fun. Beer would be the way to go.”

A nobleman who served beer threw this word as a joke.

“The price is still on the high side, but as the rumors say, if the dwarves wage war on us. Even if I don’t know, the price of this beer is going to go up like crazy. It’s okay if we don’t buy it.”

He smiled and continued the rest.

“The dwarves said it wasn’t like that. If they don’t drink beer, there’s no war.”

“Hahaha, what kind of bastards are there?”

“Is there no such thing as the curse of beer that Dwarves have? What would it be?”

“Hahaha, that’s really fun. The curse of beer… … Humans don’t seem to have that.”

“Anyway, if you can save it, please try to save it. At least it won’t hurt.”

“If it can be saved, it will be.”

40. Beer Bubble #2(1)

A tavern located in the Montefeltro estate.

Bell and Bob, who hid beer, barley, and hops in a dark cave located in the suburbs, came to this place to unwind after a long time.

“Look over there. it’s sam He must have come all the way here to sell beer just like us.”

The two could remember the days when they happened to meet Sam.

No matter how rich Sam was, he couldn’t be faster than them.

Sam, who was late to stock up on beer, had to find the place they had occupied first and then turned around in vain.

Sam also came to them with a glass of rum to pretend he knew he had seen them.

If it had been in the past, I probably wouldn’t have known, but I came here to talk about beer-related matters.

“You were here. I didn’t expect to see these two in such a distant country.”

“It’s Sam.”

“Oh, are you here? Yeah, the last time I saw you, you were wandering around looking for beer. What happened?”

At that question, Sam began to groan.

“I thought I was moving pretty quickly, but I think there were some people who moved before us. what have you guys been up to? Aren’t you here to buy beer then?”

Bell and Bob answered the question.

“We moved pretty quickly, too.”

“I moved faster than others, but what I regret was money. So I took the house and the store as collateral and borrowed money.”

Even though he took out a loan with all his property as collateral.

There was no worry on Bob’s face.

That’s how well it worked out.

“Are the beer prices almost ten times higher now?”

“A crazy price.”

“So I did a loan, but it’s not that hard.”

Hearing those words, Sam got a stomach ache.

Wasn’t it just that I came up with an odd competitor for nothing?

‘I didn’t mean to tell you back then… … .’

“I am very glad that you are doing well. Hops are hard to find these days, so the price of seeds is skyrocketing.”

Hop seeds have become more precious. It was a story that started recently.

Nevertheless, there was no way to save the things he had said, so he was half-abandoned, so there were some things that he told me.

“Is hops so hard to find?”

Bob answered Belle’s question with a smile.

“It could be. We wiped out all the hops called hops.”

“Haha, not really.”
