2010…what a year…and onward we go


Molson Canadian Hockey House

Between Christmas day and New Year’s eve it’s always fun to read the papers and on line commentary related to the year that has passed. 2010 was one heck of a memorable year. For Molson Coors to have had Molson Canadian and Coors Light as the two official beers of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic games was not only special for those of us that were involved, but a great moment for beer drinkers coast to coast to coast as we connected through the games, our athletes and celebrations in bars, restaurants, neighbourhood and family get togethers at home and of course Molson Canadian Hockey House right in the centre of action in Vancouver. We were also so very proud of acquiring a Sustainability Star from VANOC for the sustainability acations at our brewery in Vancouver. It has also been very rewarding to have supported ten of our Canadian athletes in pursuit of their Olympic/Paralympic dreams. Their trials and tribulations live on and are now part of our Olympic/Paralympic and sport history and heritage. And…our employees in Vancouver “reported” on the 2010 games through their eyes with daily dispatches posted right here to the blog.

It was also a great year of connecting with communities across Canada through hundreds of charitable events and causes. This blog is a scrap book of the many community touch points throughout the year. A special shout out to @MolsonTonia and @MolsonMonique for the work they do with community leaders across Canada.

It all points back to our founder John Molson where our commitment to community remains today, John Molson said in his early days “we are all members of a larger community which depends on everyone playing a part”. This community commitment lives on today as we look to 2011 and celebrating 225 years of brewing in Canada.

Our employees, customers and beer drinkers coast to coast to coast in Canada know that Molson Coors is there to help them build and celebrate healthy active communities. A toast to the year that was and we look forward to great things in communities coast to coast to coast in our 225th year of brewing in Canada.  Cheers  ! @MolsonFerg

  1. J’aimerais savoir comment présenter une demande de commadite

    J’aimerais connaître l’histoire des banque Molson. Il y en avaiit une à St-Ours autrefois.Merci

  2. Bonjour Christiane,

    Très heureuse de constater que vous vous intéressez à notre histoire! La banque Molson a été fondée officiellement en 1855, mais les frères Thomas et William Molson émettaient déjà des billets de banque depuis la crise économique de 1837. La Banque Molson a ensuite fusionné avec la Banque de Montréal en 1925. Pour pouvez trouver quelques informations à cet effet ici: http://www.molsoncoorscanada.com/fr/MolsonHeritage/MolsonHistory/1800.aspx, mais la meilleure source serait sûrement l’un des nombreux livres qui portent sur l’histoire des Molson.

    Quand aux demandes de commandites, tout dépend de la nature de la commandite. Pour une commandite de bière dans le cadre d’un événement privé, vous pouvez vous adresser au service des petites commandites de Molson Coors au 514-521-1786 ou au 1-800-MOLSON-1.

    Merci et joyeuses Fêtes!
