Well, looks like they've found the jackpot for getting attention.

I am not sure about New Zealand and all that, but I know here in the states grain prices are up because everyone hopped on the Ethanol wagon and converted other crop areas to corn farmland.
The folly of mistaking a paradox for a discovery, a metaphor for a proof, a torrent of verbiage for a spring of capital truths, and oneself for an oracle, is inborn in us. -Some Frenchy

The price of Hops is what is increasing here in the states and in Europe, not so much grains.  Many home-brewery stores have shortages and are very stingy with their hops.

Are you serious?  Grains are dramatically increasing in price around the world.  This is partly driven by the sudden rise in demand for corn for ethanol, which is competing with demand for corn as food.  This means that there is less food available, hence global rising food prices.  Beer is obviously made from grains, mainly barley, but grains are also largely a food staple.

Of course stories like this really indicate the level of inequality that is being exacerbated by climate change.  We're concerned with the price of beer while people in developing countries are concerned with getting enough food to live.

The terrible injustice of climate change is that food production in developed countries will probably increase while food production in developing countries is going to decrease.  This is despite the fact that developed countries contribute the largest amount of greenhouse gasses causing the problem (especially if you take into account the emissions in processing products in the developing world for developed countries) while the people who are going to suffer the most are the ones who contributed the least to the problem.

lol also if all farmland in america was converted to corn, it wouldn't be enough to power half of our cars. What's that tell you about the ethanol craze?

It's basically a tax-payer-funded subsidy for corn farmers.  Not to mention that corn has the LOWEST energy yield for any biofuel conversion in use.  Algae has more than 100-times the fuel production per acre than corn, in gallons.  Soy beans, rape seed, palm, coconut, peanut, switchgrass, and sunflower crops all have greater production in gal/acre than corn, also. 

As far as my Hops vs. Grains comment earlier, I only can say that the brewstore is stingy with hops and not with grain.  There actually is a shortage of hops, whereas grains are still plentiful yet expensive.
