Best of the Season to One and All



As the last day of “fall” reaches it’s end here in Toronto I wanted to extend the very best of the season to our readers, friends, partners and beer drinkers who follow the Molson Coors Community Blog. At this festive time of year we have a chance to reflect on the year past and look forward to renewed challenges of the new year. It’s time to pass along a little of the holiday spirit…like this small tree that my wife and I and neighbours decorate along one of the dog walking paths to put a smile on the face of passers by… (hey Torontonians…if you can tell me where it is I will even provide some samples for a holiday party to the first “six” to shout it out…cheers).

Thanks to all who partner with us in the community, to our business partners that help us bring the best in sport and entertainment to our beer drinkers and to our customers who help purvey our beers to those who thirst for our quality brews. A toast to our employees who ensure that quality, one case at a time…for over 225 years here in Canada ! To our fleet drivers that get the product to market.  And… to our beer drinkers who help to guide us in our brewing and response to them to help make sure that Molson Coors delights our drinkers throughout the calendar year. Please be sure to make responsible choices this holiday season and all the best for 2012. Cheers! @MolsonFerg

Celebrating 50 and 225 years…Cheers !

Toronto Brewery

What’s in a brewery ? Well, the situation today is that there will be employees, family and retirees of Molson Coors (Molson and Carling O’Keefe as well) that will return to the Toronto site of the Molson Coors brewery to celebrate 50 years of brewing in Toronto and 225 years of brewing in Canada. Approximately 1000 people will celebrate at a bbq on site. Joining employees and retirees will be Andrew Molson, Chairman of the Board of Molson Coors Brewing Company and Geoff Molson, a member of the board of Molson Coors Brewing Company – both who are the 7th generation of the Molson Family that has been brewing in Canada since 1786. No doubt @MolsonHammer and @MolsonSeb will have more to report on throughout the day. Cheers to the people that have worked in this brewery and helped make Molson Coors what it is today. Our people truly make the difference…we can celebrate the brewery but the people have made it what it is today. Let’s celebrate ! @MolsonFerg

225 ans pour Molson et hommage à mes 35 ans de service!


De G à D: Michel Léveillé, Marie Desmarais, Jacques Lachance, Yvon Grenier et Monique Dépatie, la fêtée!

Des retraités et des ex de Molson ont choisi la date du 2 juin pour fêter non seulement les 225 années de fondation de notre extraordinaire entreprise, mais également pour rendre un hommage particulier à mes 35 ans de services dans cette longue histoire de Molson depuis 1786.

Mes anciens collègues ont tenu à souligner mon développement et mon évolution dans une entreprise qui est la leur, où j’ai pu bénéficier de la confiance des personnes qui m’auront permis d’évoluer et de grandir. Cette grande entreprise de classe mondiale aura fait de moi ce que je suis devenue, une personne fière et passionnée … peut-être (je le crois!) vendue!

Jacques Lachance, l’organisateur de cette grande soirée, aura également profité de l’occasion pour rendre homme à mes collègues et amies, Marjolaine Deslauriers, responsable de notre prestigieux Complexe d’hospitalité (Salle John-Molson) depuis ses débuts en 1986 (couronnement de notre 200e anniversaire), ainsi qu’à Simonne Bienvenue, une personne passionnée et engagée qui aura consacré plus d’une trentaine d’années chez Molson Coors. Simonne en a parcouru du chemin dans toute cette belle histoire.


Au centre, Marjolaine Deslauriers!


Au centre, Simonne Bienvenue!

Un souvenir pour nous trois que je chérirai dans mon coeur toute ma vie durant! Quelle merveilleuse histoire que celle que j’ai vécue chez Molson, une entreprise familiale qui fête, en 2011, 225 de moments marquants dans nos communautés!

Merci du fond du coeur et Cheers!

Returns for Leukemia 2011

It’s that time of year in Ontario! Returns for Leukemia campaign is this weekend at The Beer Stores across the province.  May 28th and 29th, customers are invited to donate all or a portion of their empty bottles (or cash) with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.  Last year, we raised over $1,000,000!

I’m sure you have some empties kicking around from the long weekend…  :) Cheers, Tonia

Retrospect on creating Molson Coors Community Blog…cheers

Always fun when people ask about our blog. How did it start and why do we do it? It started because our team really felt that we just weren’t breaking through traditional media with all the great things we are doing in communities. After 224 years, we’re truly proud of the difference that we can make in connecting with Canadians in their communities coast to coast to coast. helps us be in conversation and connections with Canadians. I was most inspired by “Naked Conversations” by Scoble and Israel…to get on with doing it the “right way” in early 2008. Always open to suggestions on how people think we can improve our conversations and presence in social media. Cheers @MolsonFerg
