Brewer - Rock Art Brewery, VT, United States
Style - American Barleywine
ABV - 10.00% 
- On September 9th, 2009  A cease and desist letter arrives to Rock Art Owner, Matt Nadeau from Hansen Beverage Company, owners of Monster Energy Drink, asking that Nadeau end its use of the term "Vermonster" and pay Hansen all legal fees in pursuing the matter.  An amount the small family owned brewery could not pay.  This despite the fact that "Vermonster" was before Monster Energy Drinks.
Nadeau turned to Social Media and Local News to avoid being crushed by the conglomerate.
On October 9th, 2009 In response to a now-deleted plea on the Official Monster Energy Drink Facebook Fan Page, a company representative replied, “Nobody cares, get a life.”
Several attorneys offered free consultation and representation to the small brewery. On October 21st, under public pressure, the threat of a Monster Energy Drink boycott, and many vermont stores pulling Moster Energy Drink from their shelves, Hansen Beverage dropped the demands on the condition Rock Art stay out of the Energy Drink market.  Which they had no intention of doing in the first place.
