Is Chick Beer Politically Incorrect? How About Beer Stocks?

If you are a woman and you were looking for a beer just for women, your wish has come true. There is now a beer with the unforgettable name of 'Chick Beer', described in the video below. The beer was created by a 61 year old mother of five children, and is sold in pink bottles. The six pack carton looks kind of like a purse. Unfortunately, you can't buy stock in the chick beer company.

But according to, there are more than a dozen publicly traded breweries and beer retailers. In addition, half a dozen of the beer stocks pay dividends, ranging up to over 3%.

One example is Molson Coors Brewing Company (TAP), a Canadian based company that markets the Coors Light, Molson, Carling, Pilsner, Keystone Light, and Granville Island brands. The stock trades at 11 times current earnings and 10 tkmes forward earnings, with a reasonable price to earnings growth ratio of 0.95. Remember, a PEG below one is a very favorable buy. In addition, the company pays a generous yield of 3.1%.

Another dividend paying brewery is Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD), which has the memorable stock symbol representing its popular Budweiser brand. It also sells Stella Artois, Beck's, Leffe, Bud Light, Skol, Brahma, Quilmes, Michelob, and many other brands. The stock has a current price to earnings ratio of 18, a forward PE of 12, and a 0.97 PEG. The stock sports a yield of 1.8%.
