The Story of Molson Coors Beverage Company

Molson Coors has long been brewing beverages for almost more than two centuries to help people come together, unite over a bottle of beer, and enjoy the beautiful moments of life. This brewing company is all about giving a chance to people to enjoy life, get the most of each life’s moments, and just enjoy its products exactly the way that they are supposed to.

History of the Company

The Molson Coors Beverage Company was formed in 2005 and eventually transformed into one of the world’s most famous multinational brewing company. As the name suggests, the company was founded by the merger of Molson of Canada, and Coors of the United States. In today’s time, in terms of volume, this company is the world’s seventh-largest brewing company! Although founded in 2005, the history of this brewer can be traced as far back to the year 1774. An English immigrant named John Molson founded Canada’s oldest beer brewery on the banks of the St. Lawrence River in Montreal in 1786. He went on to write that his beer is most liked and preferred universally, even beyond his most confident expectations.

This legacy went on for as many as seven generations later in the future, owing to brands like Molson Canadian, which, in today’s time, remains one of Canada’s most iconic beers ever since 1959. A few years later, a penniless brewer’s apprentice named Adolph Coors made his way west in 1868 on a ship coming from Germany. He stopped at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, reaching the beautiful waters of Clear Creek in Golden, Colorado. In 1873, he opened a brewery there, and then eventually, in 1978, Coors Light came into existence. It now boasts the reputation of being one of the best-selling beers in the United States.
