    • The heavy investment by the automobile industry on self-driving technology could end up benefiting restaurants and beer companies, according to some conjecture from Morgan Stanley.
    • The math from MS works out like this: You take the 39% of the 2.1B global drinking population that drives and factor in that their average intake of alcohol would increase from 1.5 drinks to 2.5 drinks per week with a self-driving car to haul them home. Assign a value per drink of $2.32 and you have an incremental annual benefit of $98B for the restaurant and alcohol industry.
    • There's conflicting data on the impact of Uber (Private:UBER) and Lyft (Private:LYFT) on alcohol consumption, so the Morgan Stanley theory has a ways before playing out. Still, Morgan's Adam Jonas is convinced the automobile industry is heading toward a future of fully autonomous transport in which the driving experience is nostalgic. The buying habits of younger millennials support the thesis to a degree.
    • During the Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) earnings call earlier this week, Elon Musk predicted global demand for self-driving cars would reach 2.5B. Execs with General Motors (NYSE:GM), BMW (OTCPK:BMWYY), and Toyota (NYSE:TM) also talked autonomous models in their CCs.
    • If Jonas and Musk are anywhere close to correct, the list of companies that could benefit from the autonomous push includes Buffalo Wild Wings (NASDAQ:BWLD), Dine Equity (NYSE:DIN), Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD), Molson Coors (NYSE:TAP), Boston Beer (NYSE:SAM), Brinker International (NYSE:EAT), Bloomin' Brands (NASDAQ:BLMN), Ignite Restaurant Group (NASDAQ:IRG), Kona Grille (NASDAQ:KONA), Diageo (NYSE:DEO), Constellations Brands (NYSE:STZ), and Craft Brew Alliance (NASDAQ:BREW).
