It should be interesting to see how this plays out fro craft breweries, and especially for those that rely on Czech hops.  New out of Prague is that bad weather has destroyed 1/4th of their harvest.  Details form the Detroit Free Press:

The Hop Growers Union of the Czech Republic says preliminary figures show a yield of about 0.95 - 1.00 metric tons (1.05 - 1.10 tons) per hectare compared with the average of 1.11 metric tons (1.22 tons) per hectare. They cited freezing temperatures in February and a drought in spring. 

The country’s overall production is expected to fall by 26% to 4,500 metric tons from 6,088 metric tons in 2011.
