Craft brewery execs say they're increasingly brushing back offers from big brewers and P-E firms to consider selling their business. The buzz is over craft beer sales which are growing at a double-digit rate, while global brewery sales continue to move up at a snail's pace. What's next: As Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD +0.9%), SABMiller (SBMRY.PK), Molson Coors (TAP -0.9%), and even winemaker Constellation Brands (STZ) get even thirstier for growth, will craft brew companies continue to resist the temptation to cash in?
