Quick Reflection: Celebrating 225 anniversary with Molson Coors in Canada

molson jour

I just came out of an employee luncheon meeting in Montreal where our Canadian President and CEO updated employees on the business and the event was wrapped up by Geoff Molson – President of the Montreal Canadiens and a Board member of the Molson Coors Brewing Company. What’s really unique is that Geoff is the seventh generation member of the Molson Family. 225 years ago John Molson started brewing on the shores of the St. Lawrence in Lower Canada…now Quebec. It’s fascinating to sit and reflect upon the legacy that this family has had dating back to John’s brewing roots, as well as ventures in banking, steamship lines, railways and the arts. A long standing legacy of John Molson perpetuated by Molson Coors today is the commitment to community. Employees are constantly reminded of the famous words of John to employees in the early 1800′s that “we are all members of a larger community, which depends on everyone playing a part”. Brothers Geoff, Andrew and Justin do…cheers. @molsonferg
