Monster Beverage Corporation Revamps Craft Brewing Arm as Monster Brewing Company to Boost Brand Equity

Monster Beverage Corporation (NASDAQ: MNST) has unveiled a strategic move aimed at amplifying its brand presence in the craft brewing scene. As of today, CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective, renowned for its innovative brews, will be rebranded as Monster Brewing Company.

The decision comes as Monster Beverage Corporation seeks to capitalize on its well-established brand equity and expand its foothold in the thriving craft beer market. With CANarchy's flagship alcohol offerings, The Beast Unleashed™ and Nasty Beast™ Hard Tea, driving significant sales growth, the transition to Monster Brewing Company is poised to streamline operations and enhance market visibility.

“We entered the alcohol beverage sector with the acquisition of CANarchy in February 2022, providing us with a fully staffed organizational infrastructure, full distribution in place and manufacturing capabilities,” said Hilton Schlosberg, Vice Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of Monster Beverage Corporation. “During the past two years, we integrated CANarchy’s infrastructure to develop, introduce and market new products that are becoming leading brands in the flavored malt beverage space.”

“Monster Brewing Company will continue to function independently under the management of its President, Tony Short, and his team,” added Rodney Sacks, Monster Beverage Corporation’s Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer. “We are pleased that the strategy of combining the strengths of both organizations is proving successful, as we continue to develop and roll out innovative new products in the flavored malt beverages space and beyond. We are particularly proud that The Beast Unleashed was the best-selling new beer brand in 2023.”

Tony Short, Monster Brewing Company’s President, said, “Our new corporate identity operating as Monster Brewing Company affords an even greater opportunity to grow, not only with the introduction of innovative new products but also with our well-established core brands, which are cherished by a loyal consumer base.”

By realigning CANarchy under the Monster Brewing Company banner, the corporation aims to leverage its robust brand reputation to further propel the success of its craft beer portfolio. This strategic rebranding underscores Monster Beverage Corporation's commitment to innovation and market leadership in the evolving beverage industry landscape.
