Sam Adams is in the position of being too small for a major brewery with general mass appeal and too large for a micro brewery where the consumers' need for diversity out weights their brand loyalty. Growth related to their beer sales has begun to… More

"Buy what you know" and I know craft beer. As does Boston Beer. I don' think this movement is going anywhere, and while the smaller newest stuff grabs a lot of attention Sam Adams has enough diversity in their offerings to keep up. And unlike most smaller companies they have the ability to mass distribute, including to discount stores like Costco / Sams Club, so they will never be hard to get for the consumer that likes different beer from "the norm" but isn't obsessed with trying only the new local stuff.

The craft beer king has fallen from glory, but I think it's only a matter of time before the booming craft beer space starts to consolidate and SAM will have the opportunity to acquire other craft breweries at a more reasonable price than the lofty valuations today. The company is still producing over $90 million in free cash flow annually, has $60 million in cash and no debt, and this isn't the first time in its history that it's gone through a lull period. With a P/E of 19.5, I think patient investors will be rewarded with market-beating returns. Outperform.
