    "An honest brew makes its own friends."

    - John Molson

    Canadian spirit. Canadian passion.

    Molson Coors Canada, founded in 1786 by English immigrant John Molson in Montreal on the banks of the St. Lawrence River, is North America’s oldest brewer. Molson was a tenacious entrepreneur and a passionate innovator. He developed his own strain of yeast for brewing and built the first entirely Canadian-made steamboat.

    A heritage of craftsmanship, commitment and community.

    The pride of craftsmanship instilled by John Molson almost 225 years ago is what makes Molson’s leading beer brands, including Molson Canadian, Coors Light, and Rickard’s, so popular with consumers. Coors Light is the country’s favourite light beer and Molson Canadian its #1 lager. We are the largest Canadian brewer with six brewery facilities and 3,000 employees.


    Our brewing mastery comes from our commitment to the craft. Many of our brewers have backgrounds in engineering, biology, or chemistry. Our brewer training passes trade secrets down through the generations. And, a small-scale trial brewery operated by Molson in Toronto lets brewmasters experiment to improve existing brews and develop new ones to keep the brand fresh.


    Great beer is impossible without passion, but meticulous attention to detail ensures the consistency that makes a brand endure. Every supplier who works with Molson Coors must meet rigorous standards for ingredients and materials. Each brew is closely monitored and evaluated for quality before being distributed with the Molson Coors name.


    John Molson was also a strong civic steward who led a group of private citizens to found Montreal’s first public hospital. The company continues Molson’s commitment to corporate citizenship through charitable initiatives and sports and entertainment sponsorships.
