Our Beer Print in action

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.

Bringing clean drinking water to Bihar

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.

Canadian Thanksgiving…Cheers to Family and Friends

Naturally boulevards in the urban centres are beautified as well, but the magnificence of colour in autumn is certainly best experiences by a ride through the hills of any rural area, or a boat ride along the shores of the lakes and rivers of Canada.

It is a time that is caught between seasons, as we …

Give’R on the Water

For almost 10 years, our team in Atlantic Canada has been committed to “Give’R”, a community fundraiser that’s tagged “The Best Friday of Every Month, the Last Friday of Every Month.”
Give-R_1
For each Give’R event, a local charity or community group is selected as beneficiary, a local bar secured to host, and one of our products is selected to be sampled. Guests pay a small cover fee which goes directly to the charity, and as thanks, we provide the first sample as people arrive. The event is run in conjunction with one of our major radio partners, who send one of their on-air DJ’s to host the event.

Celebrating Safe and Sound

This year, our Nova Scotia team partnered with the city of Halifax on both of their marquee long weekend events for Canada Day and Natal Day.

Each concert sees thousands of people show up to the Dartmouth waterfront, and while the location is ideal for hosting a concert, it doesn’t have an abundance of parking or access for those trying to get in from various locations across the city. Enter Molson Coors’ Responsible Drinking program:

Halifax-Ferry

This Natal Day, our Responsible Drinking team piloted a program with the city’s Metro Transit division, making the Halifax-Dartmouth Ferry Service free on the day of the event. Starting at 6am, and continuing on until 1:30am the following morning, …
