“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.”
