A new distribution deal between Tri-County Beverage Co. and 5-hour ENERGY® was announced on Friday, November 12 at the beverage distributor’s headquarters in Warren. Tri-County Beverage will begin distribution of 5-hour ENERGY®’s new 16 oz. carbonated energy drink to stores in Oakland and Macomb County next week.

“5-hour ENERGY® is already a top three energy brand, so the addition of the 16-oz carbonated beverage product is a natural progression,” company president Jeff Sigouin said. “For the times when you’re tired and thirsty, our new carbonated beverage has a refreshing, light taste with the same feeling of energy as one of our 2 oz. shots.”

The 16 oz. carbonated energy drink is 5-hour ENERGY’s newest product launch. Available in grape, berry and watermelon flavor, the cans contain the same amount of caffeine as the 1.93 oz. extra strength shots.
