It was a true pleasure to participate in the “news” of our renewed commitment to the Molson Canadian Fund a Champion program. The program is providing ten of our Canadian Olympic hopefuls with a $10,000 grant each through the Canadian Olympic Committee in support of their training and costs leading up to the Sochi games in 2014. Georgia Simmerling and Cody Sorenson were on hand at our Calgary sales and marketing office this past Friday for a conversation about their preparation for this exciting moment in their lives. Truth is, their exciting moments become moments that Canadians from cost to coast to coast to enjoy, as we will be cheering on our Olympians at the Sochi games. Best wishes to our “Fund a Champion” athletes and to all of those Olympic hopefuls as they pursue their Olympic dream in the weeks and months ahead. Cheers ! @MolsonFerg

We’ve always known that being a great beer company involves more than just brewing. In that tradition, we couldn’t be more proud of the employees who volunteered in celebration of Our Beer Print.
That’s a whole lotta noodles!
Members of the Denver Supply Chain team took home cooking to heart while spending an afternoon volunteering at The Gathering Place. Working together, the team chose their own menu (spaghetti), shopped for the food, cooked and served the meal to more than 200 women, children and transgender individuals experiencing homelessness and poverty.
Connecting with the community
More than 20 Molson Coors employees helped to connect homeless people with health, social and economic resources at Project Homeless Connect. The annual resource fair is supported by more than 40 organizations and provides access to basic necessities and service. Onsite at the event, our team provided a variety of assistance ranging from navigating the event to coordinating lunches.
We also played a key support role before the event volunteering time and muscled to set-up the Convention Centre to host more than 1,400 attendees.
Golden Great Water Month
To wrap-up volunteer activities, four Molson Coors employees and their family members teamed up with 40 teammates from MillerCoors to get down and dirty as they spent their Saturday working to improve the Clear Creek Watershed.
Volunteers spent the day loosening the soil, applying more soil, seeding and covering the new area with a straw blanket to prevent erosion.
Here’s to increasing our positive beer print!

Our brewery in India is located in the state of Bihar, home to more than 100 million people. Once prosperous, Bihar is now battling issues such as illiteracy, inadequate access to safe drinking water and poor sanitation coverage. Surveys show that only 14% of households have access to a toilet facility and only 8% of Bihar’s 290 schools have water and sanitation resources.

We wanted to improve Our Beer Print and make an impact in our local community, so our team in India partnered with Water For People to build a fresh water well down the street from our brewery. The new well opened last month and will serve 500 families with safe drinking water. Our team also built a new toilet block and hand washing facility at the local school, which is helping to improve attendance.
We are very proud to be part of this project which will save lives, improve education and reduce the number of people suffering from water and sanitation-related diseases.
What is Water For People?
Water For People looks for creative, sustainable ways to help communities build and maintain their own reliable, safe water systems. Our project is a small part of their Everyone Forever Program, which has some audacious objectives:
- Increase water supply coverage from 57% to 100% (over 4 years)
- Increase water and sanitation coverage in schools from 8% to 100%
- Encourage hygiene behavior change through education
