This month, Coors Banquet is celebrating its 140th anniversary. That’s 14 decades of staying true to what works and the commitment to high standards. The brand, which as recently as 25 years ago was so hard to find in many parts of the country that it often was smuggled out of the Rockies, now is about to complete its seventh consecutive year of growth.
Coors Banquet has become one of the most talked-about brands in the U.S. beer business, and is poised to add another chapter to the great Banquet Beer story in 2014, including its recent launch into the Canadian market.
Did you know? According to legend, thirsty miners in the late 1800s threw celebratory banquets with Coors as the honorary beer because of its superior craftsmanship. Thus the nickname the “Banquet Beer” was born.
On Friday, May 31st, Corona hosted a giant paint party in the heart of Toronto at Yonge-Dundas Square. Over 7,500 people RSVPed for the event on Facebook to experience what it means to #LiveMasFina at one of the largest paint parties in Canada!
Together with our community of fans, we painted, danced and celebrated. People came in as blank canvases and left as works of art!
Want to join us? The next paint party is happening in Montreal on June 14th.
Earlier this year we asked Canadians from coast to coast to share their stories about how they’ve left their mark as a Canadian, and lots of people started sharing their memories and adventures with us. The Make Your Mark contest ended with us sending 12 lucky Canadians on a weekend trip to Dublin, Ireland!
Upon arrival, the winners tried their hand at Irish dancing, hurling, gaelic football and many more activities as part of their weekend adventure.
Kiss me, I’m Canadian!
The group visited a variety of pubs and purchased Molson Canadian beers for other guests, and celebrated in true Canadian-style. Beavers, Mounties and beer, oh my!
Don’t believe us? Just watch the video below to get a taste of what happened when Canadians got together…in the Emerald Isle!
April 30th marks the official start of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and we couldn’t be more excited! The Habs & Leafs flags are flying proudly at our Montreal and Toronto breweries as we all eagerly wait for the puck to drop.

Last month we shared an amazing story about how 4 of our fans made a trip to Peru and culminated their adventure by sharing a beer on the peak of Machu Picchu. Stories like this about how Canadians are leaving their mark while travelling or at home in this great country are being brought to light through ‘The Canadians’.
Stories and photos are pouring in from coast to coast, like this one pictured below, where a group of friends from the Yukon built an Inuksuk at the Great Wall of China!
What happens when Canadians get together? We’ve been getting a glimpse of what happens from people tagging their photos with #MolsonCanadian and connecting with us on social media. Here are a few more of these wonderful memories our fans have been sharing with us:
