Boston Beer Company has a market cap of $884 million and is part of the consumer goods sector. Currently there are two analysts that rate Boston Beer Company a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and three rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Boston Beer Company as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, compelling growth in net income and good cash flow from operations. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook.

On the negative front, Tofutti Brands ( TOF), down 10.5%, MGP Ingredients ( MGPI), down 6.3%, Glg Life Tech ( GLGL), down 5.3%, and Inventure Foods ( SNAK), down 3.6%, were all losers within the food & beverage industry with Companhia de Bebidas das Americas Ambev ( ABV) being today's food & beverage industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the food & beverage industry could consider PowerShares Dynamic Food & Beverage ( PBJ) while those bearish on the food & beverage industry could consider PowerShares DB Agriculture Sht ETN ( ADZ).
