Gronk Beach presented by The Beast Unleashed 2023 will be no different — blitzing the competition once again. With dedicated poolside cabanas and bars featuring custom beverages from the likes of Monster Energy, Licor 43, and Teremana Tequila, sponsored experiences and activations, luau performers, and musical superstars, Gronk Beach will quickly become the “must attend” event of Big Game Weekend. For those looking to experience the biggest competition of the weekend outside of the game itself, guests will have to look no further than the Corona-sponsored celebrity volleyball game taking place on Saturday at Corona Beach. Live from the Corona pool, this volleyball game will test celebrities such as Gronk himself as they go head-to-head in an epic game of volleyball in the water. 

“You may not see me playing in the big game this year, but there’s one thing I’m not retiring from and that’s having a great time. You’ll get what you expect from me (and more) at Gronk Beach — great music, flowing drinks, lots of dancing, and basically the most exciting event of the weekend outside of the Big Game itself,” said Gronk. “Thanks to the support of The Beast Unleashed, guests can expect great performances by some of my favorite artists in the world, including my pals Diplo, 21 Savage, Lil Jon and more.” 

Monster and all-new flavored malt beverage The Beast Unleashed are proud to present Gronk Beach. Featuring custom experiences, bars, giveaways, and activities, The Beast will keep the party going. Fans looking to be among the first to sample The Beast can head over to The Beast Bar experience or step out of the sun and recharge at the Monster Energy activation located near the pool. Beyond celebrating its VIP release, The Beast will take over the mainstage with a custom “cheers” moment led by the Gronk Beach event host, Gronk himself. Grab a can and raise your hands — here’s to the greatest Gronk Beach yet.

“Everyone’s favorite energy drink, Monster, is turning 21, so we figured why not celebrate by making our first adult beverage,” says Renold Aparicio, VP of Monster Equity Brands. “To make The Beast Unleashed, we brewed up the smoothest-tasting alcohol, hit delete on the caffeine and sugar, then blended it with Monster’s tried-and-true flavors. We can’t wait to unleash The Beast for the first time at Gronk Beach before it is released this month in select states across the country.”

Corona embodies “La Vida Más Fina” or “The Fine Life” as a modern expression of the brand’s lifestyle. Corona is proud to partner with Gronk Beach to curate memorable consumer experiences across the event. Introducing an over-the-top Corona Beach activation featuring a pool, volleyball, photo moments, and more, Corona will ensure all fans ages 21 and older find la vida más fina in Phoenix.

Hard Asset Management, Inc., One of the World’s Largest Rare Coin and Precious Metals Dealers, Experienced Growth in Demand for Both 2021/22 for U.S. and World Rare Coins

Rare coin demand worldwide rose dramatically for rare and ultra-rare coins and prices reflected this growing global demand

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – January 10, 2023 – (Newswire.com)

The U.S. and World rare coin market saw demand soar in 2021 and continue in 2022. In 2022 Hard Asset Management had one of its highest grossing years in terms of sales for both precious metals and rare coins, with 2023 starting off even stronger. This success is a testament to the company’s expertise in identifying undervalued rarities which are always sought-after regardless of economics. “Our ability to identify the right pieces at the right price that clearly translates that to collectors and investors around the world is our cornerstone of our clients success” said Mr. John Grainer EVP of sales. 

The demand for rare coins has been on the rise in recent years, driven in part by the economic uncertainty that started in 2020 and the resulting search for wealth preservation options. This trend was certainly fueled by 2 major investments by VC’s and private equities firms. The first made in Jan 2021 by entrepreneur and sports card collector Nat Turner, D1 Capital Partners L.P., and Cohen Private Ventures, LLC acquired for $700 million dollars Collectors Universe, Inc. 

(PCGS) a leading provider of value-added authentication and grading services to dealers and collectors of rare coins.

The second was in June of 2021 when BlackStone one of the world’s largest private equity firms with nearly $1Trillion under management acquired a majority stake for nearly $500 million dollars in Certified Collectibles Group, which owns NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation), which led to a surge in demand for rare coins and resulting in record-breaking prices.

“As the rare coin market continues to grow and evolve, Hard Asset Management is poised to continue its impressive growth and success, as it leverages its expertise and reputation to meet the increasing demand for these valuable and ultra-rare numismatic collectibles,” says Christian Briggs, Founder and CEO of Hard Asset Management. The company has established itself as a trusted source for the highest quality and rarest coins, and has built a loyal customer base of collectors and investors around the world.
