Molson Coors Canada

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. The pride of craftsmanship instilled by John Molson over 229 years ago is what makes Molson's leading beer brands, including Molson Canadian, Coors Light, and Rickard's, so popular with consumers. We are the largest Canadian brewer with seven brewery facilities and 3,000 employees.
Craftsmanship

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.

Commitment
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.
Community
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.
