Monster in the late 90's pioneered an alcoholic Energy Drink branded as "Hard Energy", then "Hard E" after running afoul of US Government regulations in marketing a malt beverage as providing "Energy". "Hard E" didn't catch on, and Monster was in it's nascent stages re-branding from "Barton's", the company's previous moniker. I think Monster should re-visit that idea. A product now could bear any name and as long as it contained the claw/M somewhere on the can, it would be instantly recognizable and popular. The "Mike's Hard" line of beverages currently dominates this segment but I believe there is plenty of room for a Monster product in the field.
