"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… More

Boston Beer trades at 44X forward earnings compared to Anheuser-Busch InBev's 20X forward earnings. While Boston Beer is much much smaller than BUD, that disparity seems absurd for a company in an extremely competitive industry. Much of the thesis… More

Voting outperform only because saying a tax cut is helping your business is not the same as supporting a 'white supremacist president.' People are so silly.

Boston Beer trades at 44X forward earnings compared to Anheuser-Busch InBev's 20X forward earnings. While Boston Beer is much much smaller than BUD, that disparity seems absurd for a company in an extremely competitive industry. Much of the thesis behind Boston Beer is that it is "craft" beer, and making inroads on the big beer. The problem is craft beer drinkers do not consider Boston Beer "craft" no more than they would consider BUD's Blue Moon "craft." Craft-crazy Millennials are on to "Big Beer," check out isitbigbeer.com.The number of U.S. regional craft breweries, microbreweries, and brewpubs grew 16% in 2017 to over 6,000, providing craft beer consumers with myriad choices that they actually consider "craft." Despite the multiple, SAM has experienced negative three year revenue growth and falling margins. While public markets might look for a way to play the craft beer trend, SAM, in my opinion, is not it. If you reclassify SAM as "big beer" it is actually not playing in growing industry but playing in a declining industry that is heavily consolidated, with BUD controlling over 80% of the US beer market, and an even more impressive international distribution network.
