Craft Beer Brewing
Paper Two: Cause and Effect
Fermented beverages have played a part in every civilization. The evolution of fermentation by human hands has been a diverse one. From the first fermented beverage, mead, found in ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Sumerian records to today’s micro-brewed barley-based ales, fermented beverages have seen tremendous growth. Today, micro craft breweries are displacing the competition from big brewers in America (Kain n.p.). The number of craft breweries in America has more than doubled since 2011 due to ease of access to the equipment, and craft breweries are creating thousands of jobs, contributing millions of dollars to the U.S. economy, and

Boston Beer Company
The Appendix 1 below presents the strategic group model of beer industry. In my perspective, Boston Beer Company fits the position with moderate high price and high percentage of alcohol volume. Since the strategic group model contains the variables of two competitive characteristics which are average price and percentage of alcohol by volume in the industry, the positions that companies locate in the model are suited to tackle competitive pressures. We could conclude that both of the prices and quality are key competitive elements in beer industry.
Boston Beer Company follows the combination strategy with low-cost and differentiation strategies. The case

Beer Wars is documentary about the American beer industry and how the 3 largest US breweries try to drive out the competition. This documentary covers how lobbyists are used to control the beer market and drive out smaller breweries such as Dogfish Head Brewery, Stone Brewery, and Moonshot: all producers of craft beer. The documentary describes how a 3 tier system was put into place to separate the powers of selling beer and prevent a monopoly but the laws that were put into place to prevent the monopoly, infact, promoted the size and strength of the largest beer corporations. An oligopoly was formed and maintained between Anheuser Busch, Coors, and Miller.

Craft Brewing Goes Public In August 1995, Paul Shipman, the CEO of Alridge Brewing (AB) prepared himself to enter uncharted territory. A craft brewing operation had never before been taken public in the United States, and he and his management team were about to do just that. Sure, there were massive large-batch breweries like Anheuser-Busch and Miller Brewing Company that were profitable, publicly traded firms—but there was something different about Alridge: it embodied the ethos and grassroots beginnings of the microbrew movement, and Shipman was confident that widespread market demand for craft beer was set to explode.

Business Case for Sustainability
The process of brewing beer is essentially the same for the industry as a whole. There are two stages in the brewing process; (1) the extraction of sugars from cereal grains and (2) the fermentation of these sugars to make alcohol. However, the packaging for large breweries, consists upwards of 50% of the weight during shipping from the brewer to the distributor and then to retailers (Dornbusch, 2010). Studies have shown that the aluminum can beats out the glass bottle when it comes to life cycle analysis of the materials including the recycling and reuse of each material. Aluminum cans, when recycled, use

In 1984, by the National Minimum Drinking Age Act, the drinking age that was originally 18 years of age turned to 21. Ever since then millions of complaints, arguments, and legal cases have occurred from this. I myself also agree that the United States would be better off with a lower drinking age because it teaches greater responsibility among teenagers, it allows men and women who work overseas in the army to be able to have a beer when they get home, and at 18 your considered an adult and gain the right to vote, so why wouldn’t you be able to have a beer.

By 2005 Mountain Man was generating over $50 million in revenue with over 520,000 barrels of Mountain Man Lager sold. However, Mountain Man had been facing serious challenges

Developments and improvements in the quality and appeal of beer brands have resulted in a strong organic growth in the beer category.

Overview The Boston Beer Company has had amazing success in its transition from a small scale microbrewer to a large scale national brewery. Almost all of the company’s success is due to the Samuel Adams Lager product line, which has hardly changed from the founding of the company in 1984, to the IPO in 1995, to the present day. In fact, much of the appeal of Samuel Adams comes from its microbrew image and the founder, Jim Koch’s, commitment to the brewing process and a premium beer.

Beer pong is when two opposing teams line up six cups of beer across from each other on a six to eight foot table. The players then take turns trying to throw a small ball in the opposing teams’ cups. Each ball that lands in a cup results in the player or team drinking that beer. The first team that runs out of cups of beer on their side of the table will not only have lost the game but they will also have to drink the remaining beers of their opponents.

Budweiser is a German adjective describing something or someone from the city of České Budějovice (German: Budweis) in Southern Bohemia, Czech Republic.
Beer brewing in České Budějovice (or Budweis) dates back to the 13th century. A few hundred years later, two breweries were founded in the city that made beer which they called "Budweiser," both being beers from the city of České Budějovice (Budweis), Czech Republic. In 1876, the US brewer Anheuser-Busch began making a beer which it also called "Budweiser". This led in 1907 to the "Budweiser trademark dispute" between beer companies claiming trademarks rights to the name "Budweiser".
