Given events around the globe threaten to take down stocks at a moment's notice, what's an investor to do?
"I suggest turning to beer," Cramer said, "and not just because a cold one at the end of the day helps wash away the misery of watching your stocks get crushed."
In this case the "Mad Money" host believes owning a beer stock may generate significant gains. And he thinks the chatter suggesting Anheuser-Busch InBev is in talks with various banks to finance an acquisition of SABMiller is a terrific catalyst for the space.
"How would I play that possible merger? I think there's one company that comes out ahead no matter how things play out, and that's Molson Coors," Cramer said.
That may sound counterintuitive, but Cramer noted if the merger goes through it would combine the world's number one and number two beer makers. And Cramer doesn't think regulators will allow a deal of that magnitude, unless both companies agree to divest themselves of some assets.
So what would the combined AB InBev SAB Miller sell?
