Marijuana stocks are hot in today's market, but pot stocks are not the only way for you to profit from the habits of other people. Alcohol has been legal in America for 85 years, and the industry's consolidation has delivered some solid investment opportunities. These are companies with solid growth prospect that you can invest in with confidence.You can also quench your thirst in a few ways. You can go with diversity in Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ), you can go for global growth with Anheuser Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD), or you can go for U.S. growth with The Boston Beer Co. (NYSE:SAM). * 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 and Beyond Each one has a compelling back story worth knowing:InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Constellation Brands (STZ)Source: Shutterstock If you're into the marijuana business, the best liquor play has you covered. That would be Constellation Brands, with a five-year gain more than double that of the Nasdaq average, and a rising dividend as well.Constellation is based in upstate New York as a wine company but is better known today for its beer and spirits. It owns Modelo as well as the U.S. rights to Corona beer and has a full range of liquor brands including Svedka Vodka, Casa Noble Tequila and Black Velvet Canadian whiskey.Constellation is a heavy advertiser and is strongest in the U.S. market, where it has 11% of the in-store wine market and over one-third of its sales. The company brings more than one-third of revenue to the net income line, which meant $3.4 billion of net income on $8 billion of revenue during the quarter ending in February. Sales were up 25% between 2015-2018 and 13 of 19 analysts following the stock rate it a buy.If you still want a pot stock, however, Constellation is a pot stock. It has agreed to buy 35% of Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC), the Canadian marijuana grower with 30% of that country's market share as it prepares for legal recreational sales. Anheuser Busch InBev (BUD)Source: Paul Sableman via FlickrThe owner of the Budweiser brand is also your best bet for getting in on the global growth story in beer. Anheuser Busch InBev grew through acquisitions from a small Brazilian brand called Brahma, under the leadership of 3G Capital, the global investment firm that also put together Restaurant Brands International (NYSE:QSR) and Kraft-Heinz (NYSE:KHC). The company, known as InBev, bought Budweiser in 2008 and took its name.BUD stock has surged 36% in 2019, but it's still down 14% in the last 12 months. The dividend of $1.12 gives it a yield of 1.7%. Management sets the dividend each quarter, and it varies based on results, but the company is devoted to the return.In its continuing battle with craft brews, Budweiser has been innovating by crafting a brand called Reserve Copper Lager with the Jim Beam distillery and signing deals with baseball and basketball unions to put their athletes into its ads -- the first time in years active athletes have been represented. * 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 and Beyond The company's financials emphasize its global footprint and around 20% of its sales are in North America. During 2017, it had net income from continuing operations of $5.7 billion on revenue of $54.6 billion. Boston Beer (SAM)Source: Phil Dubois via Flickr (Modified)The Boston Beer Co. is the hottest stock in the beverage industry right now, up 59% so far in 2019. But SAM stock's jump has not been because of beer.Boston Beer helped jump-start the craft beer movement with its Sam Adams line, which it began brewing in 1984. While the beer is named for the Revolutionary War leader, co-founder, chairman and spokesman Jim Koch is not related to him and much of the beer is brewed outside Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in Breinigsville.The recent run-up in the stock is thanks to a hard cider, called Angry Orchard, which was launched in 2012 and now represents 20% of the company's volume. In keeping with the founder's German-American roots, the company is also building beer gardens, large facilities in central cities that can also draw tourists.Boston Beer needed the kick of cider because its beer brands remain under pressure from big brewers like Bud, on the one hand, and tiny craft brewers on the other, which consider Boston Beer a big brewer. There are only 8.24 million shares outstanding, so its $9.3 million in net income for the first quarter came to 80 cents per share.The company's relatively small size, a market cap of just $4.66 billion, means only ten analysts currently cover the stock, and all have it listed as a hold or sell. The shares are also very volatile. Its low for the last year was $231 per share, and its high was $393.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.

Restaurant Brands International (NYSE:QSR) rolled out tacos at their Burger King chain recently and the fans jeered.Source: Shutterstock It was easy to see why. The Burger King version is a thoroughly American creation of ground beef and hamburger toppings inside a crisped shell. It's not even as good as Taco Bell, the YUM! Brands (NYSE:YUM) chain that was once sued by customers claiming the meat inside wasn't actually meat.But the move does hint at something. Taco sales are up 4% in 2019. People like them. They're also cheap and easy to make. For operators dedicated to growth like Restaurant Brands International, tacos are a natural fit. Note that QSR stock has risen nearly 40% so far in 2019.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Brazilian MagicThe Brazilians at 3G Capital formed Restaurant Brands in 2014, combining the Burger King and Tim Horton's chains. In 2017 they added Popeye's, a chicken franchise.Under their zero-based budgeting system, in which every dollar spent must be justified every year, the chains have thrived. The shares are up 70% since the merger. There's a 50 cent per share dividend yielding 2.81%, and 2018 sales were up 17%. There is 65 cents per share of profit on $1.39 billion in sales expected for the June quarter, which will be reported July 31. * 10 Stocks to Buy for Less Than Book It's a stark contrast to 3G's other big deal, Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC), which has been a disaster for shareholders since its formation at the start of 2015. Those shares are down 60% despite a dividend now yielding 5.11%.Fast food yields to the zero-based touch more easily than food manufacturing. Corporate franchisees can crunch the numbers as just-another operational detail.But, as a recent lawsuit by Tim Horton's franchisees shows, you can only squeeze a concept so far. Critics have recently called QSR stock overvalued. The best way to keep growing may be with another franchise. Some Tacos?Mexican food can be a home run, if done right. Just look at Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE:CMG), which has now recovered from its scandals. CMG stock is up 70% so far in 2019.All this brought me to Del Taco Restaurants (NASDAQ:TACO). (I've got a little interest in Del Taco. My brother once worked in one and burned his hand in a fryer.)Del Taco has had a turbulent history but it makes a decent taco. They had sales of $505 million in fiscal 2019 and showed a small profit. The market cap is about $461 million, just short of the sales figure. QSR sells for over 3.5 times sales.Del Taco has just the right size and just the right menu for an operator who wants to make it a national franchise. The fast food business is consolidating. The last two years have seen over 70 deals in the space. Private equity groups Roark Capital and JAB Holding are gobbling up chains by the handful. They're all chasing YUM! Brands, which owns Taco Bell and McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), which has more than doubled in value under CEO Steve Easterbrook. Bottom Line on QSR StockThe trend in fast food is for good operators to expand through acquisition and squeeze out fatter margins from chains and franchises. That's QSR's business model.It's a tough business that is rapidly consolidating. There aren't many profitable operations of reasonable size left to be gobbled up. Tacos are a growing business and Del Taco would be a tasty bite for an acquirer. See how quickly QSR, or one of its rivals, pounces on it.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.
