The Boston Beer's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

For the fourth year in a row, our wholesalers ranked us the number one beer supplier in the industry, in the annual poll of beer wholesalers conducted by Tamarron Consulting, a consulting firm specializing in the alcoholic beverage distribution industry. Our wholesalers ranked us first in all but two of more than a dozen categories that Tamarron uses to evaluate performance. This is an important testament to all the efforts by all The Boston Beer Company employees who service and support our wholesalers' business and to the relationships we have built with our wholesalers.

I am proud that we continue to be a leader in the craft industry in both innovation and variety as well. During the quarter, we introduced several exciting new beers including Porch Rocker, small batch brews Samuel Adams Verloren and Samuel Adams Norse Legend, and our Hopology, a unique twelve pack of six distinctly different IPA styles.

As we enter the third quarter, we are updating the packaging for all Sam Adams styles and have introduced the next evolution of our brand communication which builds on our previous messaging. We remain confident about the long term prospect for the craft category and our Samuel Adams brand.

I will now pass over to Martin for a more detailed overview of our business.

Martin Roper
