    Wow CEO just sold 4000 shares on 8/7. You really believe this is going to $23. Why would he sell any if it is? Hoping for a buyout is not a strategy to increase shareholder value. Utilizing all you brands (Widmer, Redhook) to increase sales and profits are. This company must have weak sales and marketing if they can only concentrate on one brand with 4 products

    9% depletions for Kona thats it? The average growth of craft this year will be 6%. All these guys can manage pushing just one brand and putting everything into it is 9%. Sounds like Kona is going to fade and fade fast. Breaking news Andy Kona is not that special. Incompetence!!!

    Wow. Miss on revenue and EPS 4 out of last 5 times. Hoping to be purchased by AB is not a strategy to enhance shareholder value. Where is the Board of Directors on this. They need new leadership at this company. AB has them in their pocket and is calling the shots. CEO is a straw man for big beer. They will have more excuses next earnings call.

    What kind of CEO reference SNL. He sounded like a sophomore in High School. Also he cried about competition. If you dont want competition move to russia where they dont allow any. This company is run incompetently. They leave money on the table by letting strong products like Hefe and Redhook die. Crony Capitalism at its finest!!

    You missed sales and profits. Why are they not selling the strongest products in their brands. Kona Big Wave, Widmer Hefe, Red Hook Ale? It appears something is wrong here perhaps crony capitalism. To much AB influence in Key positions and on the board. How can you let a CEO miss 4 out of last 5 time!!!! New Leadership is needed. I could run this company for $200K and not increase profits or sales. That is easy. They pay the CEO $400K outrageous!!! He only does what AB tells him to do.

    Reason they stopped selling Hefe nationwide is AB did not want the competition against 312. The CEO stated that competition is fierce! Wow if you are scared to compete then you should not be a public company. Sales decline because strong brands not supported and pulled from most markets. What do you think will happen when you do this? Sales will decline!!

    AB is moving CBA product
    .
    All of a sudden KONA is everywhere. A bud guy told me the salesmen have to work it and they are being tracked.

    I have heard KONA called a fad since it was 150k barrels. It did 400k last year and will likely come close to 475 this year. You can hate it and say terrible things about management. but the Liquid Aloha is building a loyal fan base- both men and women. Not my favorite beer either, but I see it everywhere. Sure, you will find some places it does not move like all beers.

    I am seeing more and more draft too.

    Joe, are you short in a big way? You do know the buyout price jumps in a month right

    Widmer Hefe was not withdrawn from markets because it was selling too much. Not sure about your data sources..

    Looks like Andy AB needs to have a few Konas after this report. They were suppose to earn .11 per share looks like they earned .00 per share. Where is the Board of Directors when a company misses 4 out of 5 earning periods? All this guy is doing is driving cost down for AB so they can buy them cheap. How is this in the best interest of a shareholder. I dont believe it is.

    Short sellers are freaking out. The stock is rocking and 1.3 million shares are sold short.

    What happened when Q1 EPS were released? Up $3.50 in a day.

    So now we are trading at 6 month highs and they are still short.

    SHORT BREW in the strongest beer quarter of the year.

    The short on Liquid Aloha is nuts. AB pushing that brand means EPS for one, but more importantly means Kona is important to ABs future. Kona fits the AB line to compete with Corona in the US and they need to bolster US sales. Kona doing 450k brands could triple in no time if it had $$ behind a national advertising campaign.

    And that means they will likely pay big for it. And 1.3 million shares are short. Here's to Brito putting the slam on 1.3 million shorters of Liquid Aloha! The Lavaman burrrrn.

    And best of all, we have to be close to AB selling Kona overseas. That's when the $40 per barrel royalties start and the real heartburn for the shorts starts. Of course the hurt could be a one day event if AB decides it can't live without Kona and buys it..

    Imagine, in print the minimum proposed buyout price jumps to $23.50 in less than a month and 1.3 million shorted most of it below $17. 700K shares were shorted AFTER the AB agreement of last August taking short interest to 1.5 million shares. And in Q2 the real benefit of that PARTNERSHIP will be known.

    And 1.3 million shares are still short. How do you cover that short when Kona rocks?

    Brew is giving away a great opportunity to make $ by using Widmer Hefe as national brand. Kona as a national brand alone is a mistake. They never allocated any sales or marketing $ to Widmer. Kona does not move well in my area according to a store owner who has several stores. Have to question leadership and AB trying to control BREW.

    BREW could have done what Sam Adams has done taken advantage of all the great products in portfolio nation wide. Instead weak CEO and marketing can only handle one line of portfolio that has only 4 products. Really? Why are they leaving sales $ on the table? Could it be to sell to Bud at a cheaper price?

    Kona is OK tasting beer at best. This will be a FAD for several quarters and then fade. Shameful CEO is not promoting other brands in portfolio. Believe CEO Kona strategy is a long term mistake. Should promote strongest products of all brands and use distribution system. Cannot understand this strategy
