Bethel, Maine (July 12, 2012) — Black Bear Energy, LLC. is proud to announce that they have entered into distribution agreements with four Anheuser-Busch distributors in the state of Maine for the launch of its energy drink, 500X. National Distributors of South Portland, Valley Distributors of Oakland, Federal Distributors of Lewiston, and Maine Distribution of Bangor have all incorporated 500X into their expansive and well developed product portfolios.
“We are very pleased to be working with such a distinct group of companies, each having extensive experience in our home state market. We believe these partnerships will bring added value to all involved and provide Black Bear Energy the distribution channels required to successfully launch 500X to our consumer base here in Maine,” stated Ed Yasko, Co-Founder of Black Bear Energy, LLC.
Eric Howard, Valley’s brand manager for non-alcoholic beverages said in a recent statement, “The team at Valley is very excited to support the healthy alternative, right here in our backyard of Maine. We are very optimistic about the newly formed relationship with Black Bear Energy!”
Following the initial roll-out, 500X should be available in approximately 1,200 retail locations across Maine. Rather than relying on stimulants such as caffeine and sugar, 500X packs a heavy dose of B-12, a natural and sustainable form of energy.
