    • Recent M&A in the sector appears to be giving a lift to the company. Constellation Brands bought Ballast Point earlier this month, while the A-B mega-merger with SABMiller appears to be fully on track.
    • The last look at Craft Brew Alliance on SA was from contributor Vince Martin in October when he dissected the "intriguing, but high-risk" case for the beer stock.
    • BREW is +27% in November after Martin weighed in.

    • There are some gentle gains across the beer sector after Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD +1.1%) and SABMiller (OTCPK:SBMRY +2.2%) formalize their merger plan.
    • Heineken (OTCQX:HEINY +1.6%), Molson Coors (TAP +0.7%), Ambev (ABEV +0.9%), Carlsberg (OTCPK:CABGY +5.9%), Craft Brew Alliance (BREW +1.8%), and Boston Beer (SAM +0.2%) are showing increases of varying degrees.
    • Most analysts think the beer giants will make the necessary concessions to appease regulators in the U.S. and China. On SA, Chris DeMuth says the deal will extend the reach of the best operators in the business.
    • Molson Coors in particular is widely identified as a winner in the deal through its pickup of a full stake in MillerCoors. Still to play out is what beer company makes a bid for SABMiller's position in CR Snow in China. China Resources Beer Holdings (OTCPK:CRHKY, OTC:CRHKF) is the 51% owner of the alluring JV.

    Beer brewers Molson Coors (TAP +6%), Boston Beer Co. (SAM +4.1%), and Craft Brew Alliance (BREW +4.5%) all closed with strong gains. News of Anheuser Busch's deal with the DOJ regarding the Grupo Modelo acquisition, replete with multiple U.S.-related concessions, may have helped.
