The Price For High Prices II: Hopless Beer

This one's for Ronald:

Craft Brewers Reformulate Beer to Cope With Hop Shortage, Wired, May 10, 2008
"Prices of the commodity [hops] are skyrocketing as hop supplies have plummeted, forcing smaller brewmasters around the United States to begin quietly tweaking their recipes, in ways that are easily discerned by serious imbibers."

"[Brewer Shaun] O'Sullivan is lucky. One of his most popular beers is Watermelon Wheat, which "has virtually no hops in it," he says."
I don't know. Watermelon and wheat?
