    Is a Beat in Store for Boston Beer (SAM) in Q2 Earnings?

    Boston Beer (SAM) is likely to deliver robust second-quarter 2019 results on continued depletion and shipment growth. However, rising costs and a sluggish Samuel Adams brand may act spoilsport.

    Sam Adams maker: Beer makers don't leave distribution deals, they wait 'em out

    In his 35 years of running Samuel Adams beer, Boston Beer Co. Founder Jim Koch said he has never left a distribution agreement. It is easier to wait for an owner to die than it is to leave a contract with a distributor, he said. His comments came as brewers and distributors showed up in force to a hearing at the State House in front of the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure on Monday, facing off over how to change so-called “franchise laws.”

    3 Legal Highs for Your Portfolio

    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.

    Why Colorado craft-beer makers are so bubbly about the hard-seltzer market

    The hottest new trend among Colorado craft brewers isn’t beer at all — but rather the brewing of hard-seltzer beverages that are beginning to pace with some of the most well-known local and national beer brands in bar and liquor-store sales as health-conscious consumers seek lower-calorie ways to quench their thirst with an alcoholic drink. At least five significantly sized Colorado craft breweries have launched or are preparing to launch lines of hard seltzers, and one has experienced significant sales right out of the gate. Just five months after debuting its Wild Basin Boozy Sparkling Water, Oskar Blues Brewery officials report that it’s their second-biggest-selling brand and is the fastest-growing brand in the portfolio of Canarchy Brewery Collective, their Longmont-based parent company that operates seven breweries in six states.

    Tariffs Raise the Price of a Beer? Say It Ain’t So!

    “The Section 232 aluminum tariffs are a $350 million annual tax on beer,” Beer Institute President Jim McGreevy tells Barron’s. “That’s a drag on beer that wine and other spirits don’t have. McGreevy is referring to Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, which says a U.S. president can impose tariffs on foreign goods in the interest of national security. President Donald Trump imposed tariffs on imported steel and aluminum in March 2018, leading to a 35% increase in the price of aluminum shortly thereafter.
