Monster Beverage Corp., Corona, Calif., announced that effective immediately, CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective will operate under the name Monster Brewing Co.

CANarchy’s new alcohol products, The Beast Unleashed and Nasty Beast Hard Tea, now represent the majority of the company’s alcohol beverage sales. This change will better align the business with Monster Beverage Corp.’s brand equity, particularly as these products are expected to continue to play an increasingly important role in CANarchy’s future activities.

“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-CEO of Monster Beverage Corp., in a statement. “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.”

Rodney Sacks, Monster Beverage Corp.’s chairman and Co-CEO, added: “Monster Brewing Co. will continue to function independently under the management of its President, Tony Short, and his team. 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 Co.’s president, added, “Our new corporate identity operating as Monster Brewing Co. 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.”

Monster Brewing Co., formerly known as CANarchy Craft Brewery Collective, was founded in 2015 as a disruptive collective of craft breweries. Among its current portfolio of beer brands are Jai Alai IPA, Dale’s Pale Ale, Dallas Blonde, and Wild Basin hard seltzers, among others. The company recently added flavored malt beverages — namely The Beast Unleashed and Nasty Beast Hard Tea — to its portfolio. The company also distributes Monster Tour Water, still and sparkling water beverages, and Revitalyte, a rapid hydration drink.
