    American Brewing Company, Inc.
    180 West Dayton Street
    Warehouse 102
    Edmonds, WA 98020
    Phone: 425-774-1717

    This report (newsletter) is your basic "look at what we found" heads-up on American Brewing (OTCPK:ABRW) from Edmonds, WA on the Puget Sound, next to the Edmonds Yacht Club and the Harbor Square Athletic Club.

    Very convenient to workout, grab a beer and food (pizza and sandwiches) at their Brewery/Tasting room, and then jump on your Yacht and motor down to Seattle with a few growlers aboard- which is about 18 miles to the south.

    Here is their website: http://americanbrewing.com/

    We like their beer so much (they sent us a case), we decided to sign them up as a client. That and the fact that they have a ridiculously small market capitalization of only $4.5 million - with the shares trading at $0.36. We officially added it to the Watch List at $0.31 so we're off to a decent start - being up 16% in a week.

    But that's neither here nor there. What is here, is we have small brewer in the very hot craft brewery sector that investors haven't heard of (outside of the Seattle area - they started brewing in the new facility in 2011) that went public "on their own" so to speak (self underwritten vs. traditional IPO). And what so typically happens when a small company goes public without an investment bankers -- with brokers to tell investors about it -- it just drifted down from roughly $2.00, to what we believe is a bottom at $0.30 a share a week ago.

    We will note they did a private placement at $0.50 and while we can't know for sure, there is a real good possibility that some of those investors decided to hightail it, when it was trading over $2.00 and on the subsequent way down. Which if we are right about the companies long term potential, is a gift from the brewery Gods to us.

    Prospectus dated 4/10/2014: http://www.otcmarkets.com/edgar/GetFilingHtml?FilingID=9928908

    As it stands, the company probably only has a few hundred shareholders (probably locals) with Neil Fallon, the founder owning the majority or 5.6 million, of the 12 plus million shares outstanding.

    The Company produces beer under trade names including, among others, Breakaway IPA, Flying Monkey Pale Ale, Caboose Oatmeal Stout, American Blonde, Piper's Scotch Ale, Brave American Brown Ale and Winter Classic. Our favorite is the Breakaway IPA an India Pale Ale with a hockey player on the label. A real man's beer with a 7.2 ABV.

    Their Beer: http://americanbrewing.com/our-beer/

    The Breakaway IPA's aroma is one of beer's most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam (Ah, no. we didn't write that. We describe good beer as "damn that's good.") The description came from here: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/rate/139491/

    Their master brewer is the highly renowned Harold "Skip" Madsen. Mr. Madsen has won 10 gold medals, 12 silver medals, 7 bronze medals and 1 People's Choice Medal from major beer festivals. He is the man.

    Skip Madsen: http://americanbrewing.com/master-brewer/

    Typical testimonial from Yelp:

    "Every time I'm up north in Edmonds, I try to swing by American Brewing to see what's new. They have a very comfortable taproom with TVs and cheerful patrons and servers. I've been by in the summertime when their doors are open to the sunshine and the grill is fired up with hot dogs and other BBQ treats. I've been there when they have exceptional live music. Popcorn too!"

    "Every time I go, the beer is outstanding. Skip Madsen is one of our area's most experienced and treasured brewmasters, and his beers are consistent, high-quality and delicious. Now that they are up and running on a bigger brewhouse and with more beer capacity, they have a greater variety of specialty and seasonal beers than ever before."

    YELP: http://www.yelp.com/biz/american-brewing-company-edmonds

    On to bigger news (we do have a full report coming):

    Christian McMahan who spent his early years at Boston Beer Company and then went on to become the VP of Marketing at Diageo North America and Chief Marketing Officer at Heineken USA has been retained to help American Brewing with its expansion efforts. Hmm, the former Chief Marketing Officer at Heineken USA...

    So stay tuned to Neil and stay tuned to us.

    2. Craft Beer Drinkers Just Love Their IPAs (CNBC)

    In its first year, Gun Hill Brewing has rolled out its Gold ale, made for easy, extended drinking; fruity ales tailored to warm weather and an award-winning stout. None of those varieties, though, has sold as well as Gun Hill's India Pale Ale.

    "Obviously, people like the flavor of it. But I think it's become so popular because there are very few beers people can see and immediately recognize," said Dave Lopez, co-managing partner of the Bronx, New York-based microbrewery.

    The hop-heavy, high-alcohol brew has grown at a faster pace than the ever-expanding U.S. craft beer market. IPA sales in the 52 weeks ended Jan. 25 jumped nearly 50 percent from the previous year, according to IRI, a Chicago-based market research firm. The wider craft segment rose about 20 percent.

    IPAs accounted for about a quarter of craft sales in that span. Fervor for the hop-heavy ale shows no signs of slowing.

    3. Anheuser-Busch Buys Another Craft Brewer (CNBC)

    Anheuser-Busch InBev continues to get craftier.

    The brewing conglomerate is purchasing Seattle-based Elysian Brewing Company for an undisclosed amount. Founded in 1995, Elysian sold more than 50,000 barrels of beer in 2014.

    "Elysian's story includes everything we look for in a partner," said Andy Goeler, CEO of Anheuser-Busch's Craft division, in a statement. "As the fastest-growing brewer in Washington, their recipe is working. Elysian's brands are an important addition to our high-end beer portfolio, and we look forward to working together."

    The acquisition is the latest in series of moves by Anheuser-Busch InBev to expand its craft beer portfolio.

    In 2014, Anheuser-Busch acquired Patchogue, New York-based Blue Point Brewing and Bend, Oregon-based 10 Barrel Brewing. A-B's craft group also includes Chicago's Goose Island Beer Company, which it bought for $38.5 million in 2011.

    "After a lot of hard work, we've grown from one Seattle brewpub to four pub locations and a production brewery," said Joe Bisacca, Elysian ‎CEO and co-founder. "With the support of Anheuser-Busch, we will build on past successes and share our beers with more beer lovers moving forward."

  • Top Beverage Stocks For 2015. The Beverage Stock Review Launched.

    Top Beverage Stocks for 2015. The Beverage Stock Review Launched.

    Chicago IL / Research Report Wire / February 18th, 2015 / Institutional Analyst Inc.(IA) announced today it released the 2015 Beverage Stock Watch List and the launching of the Beverage Stock Review, the most comprehensive financial portal and newsletter today on Wall Street covering publicly traded companies, in the beverage industry.

    IA is an independent investment research firm founded in 1998, with the launch of the "Internet Stock Review" additionally provides coverage for companies in a number of distinct industries including; Biotech, Stem Cells, Internet, Patent Monetization, Alternative Energy, Entertainment, Restaurants, Special Situations and Private Equity.

    "Our research efforts will be covering soft drinks, brewers, wineries and distillers of all sizes - both here and abroad," stated Roland Rick Perry Managing Director of IA. "Investors love the beverage industry which is constantly changing and more than any consumer business, continually subject to a rich array of intriguing storylines of success. There are so many individual stories of triumph in the face of competition, over multi-national giants with $100 million advertising budgets and their purpotedly locked-up shelf space, it is astounding to witness. Hardly a year goes by when we don't read about a small company started with a handful of employees growing from making a few barrels of beer or a few hundred cases of a vitamin or energy infused drink - then on to regional or national success, we felt the industry demanded a site dedicated to their coverage. And today, we have one." he added.

    "Investors from across the country and abroad are on a never ending search for the next Monster Beverage ($MNST) which was started by the Hansen Brothers by selling juice to film studios and retailers in Southern California, or the next Glacéau Smartwater which was started by Darius Bikoff using his personal savings while he was in the midst of a divorce and bankruptcy and was sold to the Coca-Cola ($KO) for $4.1 billion in cash in 2007, or the next Boston Beer ($SAM) which was founded in 1984 by Harry Rubin, Lorenzo Lamadrid and Jim Koch; who brewed his first batch of the beer in his kitchen, using the original family recipe. Today, despite sales of $730 million last year, Boston Beer is still an impressive growth company," noted Mr. Perry.

    The Beverage Stock Review was created as a starting point to help those investors searching for the next big thing, be it a coconut water created in Philippines, a kombucha drink made in Los Angeles, a craft beer brewed in Edmonds WA, a Tequila from Mexico or flavored Vodka from France. Our database of publicly traded companies on Wall Street exceeds 150 names and and is growing daily with the addition of smaller unheard of companies, who are with increasing frequency choosing to go public via a reverse merger of S-1 filings and thus much more difficult to find on a crowded Wall Street - versus companies which go public with a well publicized traditional IPO.

    With deep ties to Wall Street, Institutional Analyst Inc. will launching a consulting division in the summer of 2015 in partnership with a number of industry experts, legal firms and regional investment banking firms with a goal of helping development stage beverage companies decide if they are ready for a public offering, or what is required from both a practical and regulatory standpoint to successfully go public.

    "The 2015 Top Beverage Stocks for 2015, while an impressive undertaking from a research perspective is neither an exhaustive list nor a recommended list," Roland Rick Perry stated. "This years list is quite eclectic and has companies based in Australia, New Zealand, France, Canada, China, Chile and of course, the United States. Stock prices range from $0.03 for a struggling Vodka maker based in NYC, New York to $70 for a famous maker of Champagne based in Tours-sur-Marne, France. Market capitalization range from under $5 million to in excess of $3 billion. The companies we elected for one reason are another are companies which we find interesting from any one of a variety of consumer or data-points and include an Australian wine maker, an energy-drink maker which claims drinking their product can not only help you get out of bed but help you lose weight, the maker of our favorite Vodka (Sobieski), the brewer of some of the best beer we have ever tasted from a seaside community located on the Puget Sound and a Chinese maker of the most potent drink liquor we've ever enjoyed called Baijiu (pronounced "bye-joe"), which will surely take the US by storm - if permitted to to reach our shores."

Also discussed is the company's recent acquisition of 3rd generation CAR T-cell and PD-1 cellular technology as they build an immuno-oncology pipeline in China.
