Anheuser-Busch Distributors in Florida Increasingly Support Award-Winning DNA Energy Drink and Snacks

BOCA RATON, Fla., March 9, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DNA Brands, Inc. (OTCBB:DNAX) announced that Stephens Distributing Company, Inc. has joined a growing list of Anheuser-Busch distributors in Florida to now offer DNA products. Stephens Dist. services a portion of south Florida including sections of Broward County and joins a growing list of Anheuser-Busch/Budweiser distributors who have flocked to the highly acclaimed delicious tasting energy drink and DNA Meat Snacks, both favorites of the action sports community.

According to Darren Marks, Founder and CEO of DNA Brands, “Anheuser-Busch distribution houses have been launching DNA since we were recommended and approved by the AB Strategic Board Alliance (SBA) several months ago. SBA was created to find a replacement for Monster energy drink that departed AB for Coca-Cola.” Marks added, “Our goal is to complete the state-wide build out of all Anheuser-Busch distributors and take advantage of the economies of scale as we greatly increase our sales, marketing and advertising programs.”

DNA BRANDS makes DNA Energy Drink(R), the award-winning, best-tasting energy drink at the 2010 World Beverage Competition, and DNA Beef Jerky(TM) and DNA Shred Stix(TM). DNA Energy Drink(R) is a proprietary blend of quality ingredients in three flavors: Citrus, Lemon Lime and Sugar Free Citrus. DNA is a proud sponsor of many action sport teams, consisting of top athletes from Motocross, Surf, Wakeboard and Skateboard, and has received tremendous TV and media coverage.

Independent retailers throughout the state sell the DNA Brand products as well as the national retailers CVS, RaceTrac and Circle K.

Robbie Robertson, owner of Quality Beverages, an AB distributor in Deland, Florida, states, “[We are so] pleased we are carrying the DNA full product line of energy drinks and Shred Stix! We have enjoyed DNA’s direct support during roll-out and continued presence in our market. DNA has been one of the best supplier/distributor partnerships we’ve ever been involved with and I look forward to many years of continued success with DNA.”

True to its actions sports roots, DNA BRANDS, INC. has earned national recognition through its title sponsorship of the DNA SHRED STIX STAR YAMAHA RACING TEAM where it competes on a world-class level in Supercross and Motocross, reaching millions of fans. DNA Energy Drink(R) can also be found in other action sports such as Surfing, BMX, Wakeboarding and Skateboarding and its athletes are recognized stars in their own right.
