NERD Energy Drink is a commercially available energy drink invented and distributed by UTSA alumnus Vincio Montes. It was invented in 2004 while he was a pre-medical senior as a custom drink for the purposes of his own study enhancement but caught on when people noticed the unlabeled beverage that accompanied his studies. Montes actually ordered the original ingredients through his organic chemistry professor. Its mass distribution began in 2007 while he was a medical student in Virginia and made its way back into Texas in 2008. Montes uses proceeds to give back and even gave two scholarships away in 2008.[1]
