Boston Beer is a high-end alcoholic beverage company that produces hard seltzer, beer, and hard cider at its cidery and under contractual arrangements at other brewery locations.
On July 22, 2021, Boston Beer reduced its full-year 2021 guidance, expecting earnings per share between $18 and $22, adjusted downward from its previously announced range of $22 and $26. The Company cited softer-than-expected sales in the hard seltzer category and overall beer industry, and also stated that it had "overestimated the growth of the hard seltzer category in the second quarter."
On this news, the Company's share price declined by $246.54 per share, or 26%, from $947.54 per share to close at $701.00 per share on July 23, 2021.
On September 8, 2021, Boston Beer announced that it was withdrawing its 2021 financial guidance as a result of decreased demand for its hard seltzer products. The Company further disclosed that it expected to incur hard seltzer-related inventory write-offs, shortfall fees payable to third-party brewers, and other costs associated with the drop in demand during the remainder of fiscal year 2021.
On this news, Boston Beer's share price declined $21.09 per share to a closing price of $538.31 on September 9, 2021.
