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.

ALRIDGE BREWING COMPANY
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. He and the team had steadily developed

The History of Anheuser-Busch
More than one hundred and twenty years have passed since Adolphus Busch
first introduced Budweiser to the United States. And although much has changed over the years, the "spirit of Adolphus and his great dreams remain unchanged, as vibrant today as it was a century ago"(www.anheuser-busch.com). Through several successive generations of Busch family leadership, Budweiser has become an authentic, truly genuine, American beer. These superior qualities are the result of Busch’s original dreams and visions, the stable leadership through three major crises, and the diversification of a company over the years.
The story begins with Adolphus Busch. Born in July

place. In the process of people fighting so hard to get rid of alcohol the Anti-Saloon League was organized, which were a group of Protestants that wanted to push the prohibition of alcohol through political means. They used modern techniques to get to the state legislature and get prohibition laws passed, and this quickly led to a creation of a national body all wanting the same thing.
Although, why the politicians and religious people were trying so hard to fight for prohibition, big time gangsters were fighting against. Bootlegging started; they would make their own beer and sell it illegally. Organized crime was at an all-time high, they would sell their bootlegged beer, and violence rose between the different gangs and mafia, because they didn’t want their customers taken away from them. It finally came a time where many people got fed up with the violence and the crime and they actually decided to abandon prohibition laws, and the 21st amendment gave way as repeal to the 18th amendment.

Company Analysis: A&W Canada
A&W is a fast food restaurant that is world famous not only for its food product, but mainly for its original beverage; the A&W root beer.
In 1919, a man by the name of Roy Allen decided to set up a drink stand at a parade, which was honoring World War I veterans returning home to Lodi, California. He offered a new product called root beer. The creamy beverage was a great success; so much that he took on a business partner by the name of Frank Wright. In 1922 Allen and Wright with initials combined, created a brand for the beverage calling it the A&W Root Beer. ("History of A&W Root Beer," 2014 Paragraph 2

We must compare this new WACC with the expected return of the average of the firm’s current WACC and the project’S IRR. If this expected rate of return is higher than the newly calculated firm’s WACC, it would mean that the project is a value-increasing investment.

Compensation for Pinchuk 2001:
For the Deutsche Brauerei expansion into the Ukrainian market, Oleg Pinchuk was hired to market the beer very aggressively; he was stolen from a major Ukrainian rival. Pinchuk had instant success because the Deutsche Brauerei beer was considered to be richer than the domestic competition. Also, the market was very fragmented which is easier for a newcomer to have instant success. A key to the continued success in the Ukrainian market is Pinchuk, and his ability to network with the new distributors, set-up financing, and find new markets in

2008, Australians aged 15 years and over consumed, on average, the equivalent of 9.95 litres of pure ethanol per person.8
A number of strategies have been put in place to reduce alcohol-related harm by reducing the average consumption of beer, wine and spirits across the population. These have included a legal minimum age for purchasing alcohol, restrictions on alcohol advertising and restrictions on sales promotion, drink driving laws and advertisements on television, as well as advertising aimed at educating the effects of alcohol in pregnancy.
Increasing the price of alcohol (usually via taxation) also reduces consumption, as consumers buy less when the price rises. Consequently

Surrealism wanted for society to free their minds. Hannah Höch created “Cut with a Kitchen Knife Dada through the Last Weimar Beer Belly Cultural Epoch of Germany (1919)”. As part of Club Dada, Höch critiqued culture by literally slicing it apart and reassembling it into disjointed, emotional depictions of modern life. It seemingly places humans against machine and refers to the decadence of pre-war German culture as it was seen.

The open system theory also ganders internally as it explores how well it is able to convert inputs, raw material and human resources into outputs, product/services and employee behavior. How productive the conversion of inputs to outputs is being done is determined by “organizational efficiency” which measures the sum of inputs verses the sum of outputs. It is important however to consider that a successful company requires more adaptive as well as innovative methods and does not rely solely on efficiency.
