The proliferation of craft and microbreweries could lead to in-fighting for shelf space among the newer would-be challengers, leaving Sam Adams with some breathing room near the top of its niche market. After a long, cold winter on the Eastern seaboard, consumers will find reasons to reach for a luxury beer.

Boston Beer is brewing up strong performance -- I'm a little late to entering this one but have liked its prospects for a while now as it expands distribution across more of the country and continues to try new things, like the Angry Orchard ciders.

Great management, new product lines and with cans sales should increase as they have the ability to be sold at stadiums and concerts. Beer is never going away, especially great beer!

The stock is currently trading below its 50-day moving average of 242.77. Downside risk is falling to 200-day average 209. Company revenues consistently grow 10% to 20% year over year. At 15% growth rate company will double in size in 4.8 years. I bought 10 shares at 236.

Great company, great product, but the P/E ratio is too high. Needs a price correction to become good value again.

The craft beer revolution is really gathering momentum, and with the introduction of their brews in cans, Boston Beer is reaching out to a whole new set of guzzlers.

People love to think of this as a "big" beer company, but it's tiny compared to the real big boys. Craft beer, like every consumer fad, will peak, then recede. What will be left are true long-term devotees and businesses that are well and have real brand value. And to the youngest beer drinker today, Sam is their Bud, a default choice.

Very nice growth here, however any benefit from that has been priced into this stock a while back, probably about $50 ago. With a projected EPS of $5.35 for FY 2013, and a projected annual growth rate of 19.6% (average analyst estimate) over the next 5 years, you're still looking at a P/E of over 17 when EPS is over $13, based on today's prices. That's not out of this world expensive, but for a niche market segment like microbrewing, it's still a hefty premium to fork over. I would temper my pessimism if I thought it represented an imminent takeover target, but I don't think Harry Rubin has any interest in selling his baby, not for a long time anyway.

While it's hard to make an apples-to-apples comparison of SAM to other beer companies considering the significant difference in operations, it is still instructive to look at profit margins. With significantly lower operating and net margins than its industry peers (165 vs. 26%, and 10% vs. 18%, respectively), sales and revenue growth have to be very high considering the P/S ratio is also 17% higher than its peers (4.8 vs. 4.1).

Paying such premiums for this level of growth only works if other subsequent investors are as equally forgiving with their required rate of return. In tech, that often proves true, but I wouldn't bet on it with a niche brewer.

SAM is capitalizing on the rising popularity of craft beer in the The United States and continually expands its product list, which now includes over 50 unique beer blends and several hard cider and flavored malt beverage labels. As one of only a few small caps left in an industry prone to consolidation, the company is also very much a take-over candidate.
