    Sam getting desperate? Rebel Beer half price !!

    That's a great sounding price but Sam can actually make money on a $20 case because of their efficient large brewery in PA. This is a big competitive advantage Sam has over other craft brewers. I'm sure they got great trial being a Publix loss leader. This sounds like a positive for Sam, not a negative. The Publix chain rep did their job on this one.

    Selling shares

    He does this year after year. He controls the company with his private class of shares, so he sells his public shares as more of his options vest. It's how he has so much real money that he can do with as he wants. The shares he sells, get replaced with options that vest. Been going on for years and the always increasing stock buyback keep options in the money year after year. A great gig if you can get it, but long-term its always good for shareholders too.
