IN Deck – The Long Blog Post


I have moved to short posting on LinkedIn and when I have time post here.  The beta blog is more of what I call a “Brain Dump” and it is a “BETA” blog.

Here is where the short blog is posted:  https://www.linkedin.com/in/jdmorris

Beer Market

Craft beer companies are hot and I am interested as well as some limited partners and private equity friends.  Green Flash was just an startup when I moved to San Diego and now the are number 49 nationwide in the US!  I have few industry experts at my fingertips and would enjoy speaking 15 minutes or 2 day strategy meeting in DC or SoCal!  The Brewers Association estimates that craft brands more than doubled their share of the $100 billion beer market, to 11%, in the past four years, while sales of mass-market beer stagnated.  In 2015, 19 craft-beer deals worth $13 billion were announced in the U.S., according to research firm Dealogic. AB InBev, MillerCoors, Constellation Brands, and Heineken—which together control 81% of the U.S. market—all announced deals.
