    DiverlikesBREW must be employed by BREW. AB is not buying they are focusing on what they have already purchased. Lets see what earnings bring. That will tell the tale. Why would AB buy them when they already control company through management positions and CEO follows what they tell him to do.

    AB's High End Division still employs thousands in North America. These are redundant positions. The sales people are now assigned to the brands and not to AB... The High End is becoming more independent and stand alone. Thus better able to acquire CBA .

    If anyone out there is looking to replace Widmer Hefeweizen because Andy AB made foolish decision to pull from all markets except Northwest US, buy Erdinger Weissbier. This is even better than Widmer and not sending profits to big beer AB.

    Looks like CEO should have continued to sell quality brands like Widmer and Redhook to entire country. AB influenced him to pull Widmer back probably because they are scared of the competition. Not sure how this enhances shareholder value

    Hey Joe "The Short" is this what you are talking..... https://www.forbes.com/sites/taranurin/2017/09/07/ab-inbev-high-end-beer-division-lays-off-90-of-its-sales-force/#3197c8874e87 I encourage all to read this article Joe is misconstruing the facts!

    AB InBev High End Beer Division Lays Off 90% Of Its Sales Force
    A report says management considered its corporate sales staff of 400 redundant.

    Kona is not a craft beer. 30% owned by Bud. Sales will fade once the comparable roll in next year

    Some survey results seem to indicate that consumers don't care who makes their beer, as 40% of respondents said it didn't matter if a Big Beer brand owned a formerly craft label. But that also indicates that 60% do think it matters, and with the craft beer trade group Brewers Association making it easier to identify which beers are truly independent with a new icon that its members can display on their labels, mass brewers may find their high-end beer sales sliding even further.

    Now, the chickens are coming home to roost. Anheuser-Busch just fired 380 employees from the high-end division that houses the craft breweries it acquired over the years -- some 90% of its sales force. The company told Forbes it was "rethinking the business model surrounding the High End" and would no longer focus on acquisitions

    Looks like they will not be purchased from AB. Lets see how go tee Andy performs now. Time to update your resume

    My guess is that BREW is due for a pullback in the short-run. This is so frustrating trying to find trade ideas. I've subscribed to some email newsletters which helps me with new stock ideas. awe*some*sto-ck*s is the one i like best.

    Weak CEO and bad overall strategy. Stock will be at $14 next year this time. Now that BREW will not be purchased CEO will actually have to perform. Earnings will tell the story. I bet that clueless CEO will not be able to enhance shareholder value

    Zacks has Craft Brew as a "1" rated stock. Best rating they have.

    Hey CBA looks like your strategy of being bought is pipe dream. This is from Forbes interview with AB VP:

    By coincidence, I sat for an exclusive hour-long interview with High End president Felipe Szpigel Wednesday, who told me that the company would no longer focus on acquisitions and would instead pivot to growing its ground-up

    You should focus on shareholder value by selling all your brands to entire country.

    Lets see if they match expectations for earnings! .09 per share. They will make excuses again. There is no way AB is buying them when they control key positions at the company.

    Looks like the CEO strategy is not working. Why did he sell 4000 shares in early August? Why would you only use some of the company's products to increase sales and profits. This is not in the best interest of shareholders. Where is the board?

    Guess AB did not need to buy since they control the direction of this company. We should be pursing growth of all brands not just Kona. Kona will fade once it is through the entire distribution network and reorder come in. This is when you will see depletions come in below 6%

    If this stock traded on fundamentals nobody would purchase. PE over 300 are you kidding me? Hoping to be purchased is not a way to grow a company. Time to Fire CEO Andy "AB" Thomas. He directs company in direction good for AB and not ahreholders. Why hasnt AB purchased if price goes up on 8/23? Company is poorly lead and AB is trying to take control with out purchasing. If they have 2 board members and key members on management team why spend the money to buy? They already control it.
