December 6, 2022 Morning

Comfort Inn

Vernal, Utah

December 6, 2022




I stopped at Davis Foods this morning to pick up some Polygamy Porter. There was a gentleman restocking the beers who gave me a rundown on the local craft beers and his favorites. He drinks beer with > 5 percent alcohol which is sold in liquor stores, not grocery stores. He told me that he was born and raised in Vernal and that I need to come back in the summertime when "there is so much to do."


He kindly offered to restock the Polygamy Porter later today.

The company behind one of America’s most-popular energy drinks is getting into the beer business, buying the brewing collective that includes two well-known Utah beer brands: Squatters and Wasatch Brewing.


Monster Beverage Corporation — best known for its Monster Energy Drink — recently announced it was buying CANarchy, a Colorado-based craft brewing collective whose brands include the two Utah labels, for $330 million in cash.


Monster vice chairman and co-CEO Hilton Schlosberg announced the sale during an online investor meeting on Jan. 13, explaining that the deal provided the company with “a springboard form which to enter the alcoholic beverage sector.”
