Molson Canadian’s newest beer fridge journey

Molson Canadian Beer Fridge - Eastern Indonesia

No matter where you are in the world, every Canadian should be able to cheer on Team Canada during the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. On Dec 26th, we’re launching a new campaign on TV showing just how far we, and our drinkers, would go to make that happen. This initiative marks the second chapter of our iconic red beer fridge; We first toured it around Europe in June – the only way to open then was with a Canadian passport.

This time, all in the name of hockey, we went even further! We sought out a remote Canadian die-hard hockey fan in Indonesia. We tracked down his best friends here in Canada and sent them halfway around the world to surprise him with the beer fridge, filled with new Molson Canadian Victory Bottles and a way to watch the Olympic Games. And it’s all real. Check it out:

“I am Canadian” receives 2013 Canadian Advertising Museum McLuhan Award

I Am Canadian Logo

The Molson Canadian team together with agencies MacLaren and Bensimon Byrne, was honoured with the CAM McLuhan Award for “I am Canadian” at last night’s annual Advertising & Design Club of Canada’s Direction 2013 Awards.

Molson Canadian - The Rant

This award is presented to a campaign that has, over time and using a variety of media, had a powerful impact on Canadian advertising, and Canadian culture. It’s awarded to the marketer and their agency team whose partnership produced a campaign that is truly “game changing.” The wave of patriotism in Canadian young people incited by “I am Canadian” was unprecedented. That a Canadian beer should inspire such intense nationalism also seems uniquely Canadian.

First introduced in 1994, it became a form of general expression and years later “The Rant” debuted in 1999. It came with a new integrated campaign featuring “Joe Canada” and saw over 40,000 digital parodies posted online at by consumers voicing their passion for beer and pride for the best part of North America.

“I am Canadian” was a large part of the reason why I wanted to start my career at Molson Coors. It has become an iconic beacon of Canadianism and one of the most historic marketing campaigns in Canada. It still gets me every time I watch those commercials.

My name is Melisa and I AM CANADIAN!

Canadians making their mark in Dublin


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!
