“Molson Coors Brewing History

The company’s binational nature has caused several sources in both the U.S. and Canada to claim the company is now controlled by interests in the other country. While the company is incorporated in the United States, the company is traded on stock exchanges in both countries, and control is equally shared between the Molson and Coors families. The company is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and in Montreal, Québec

On October 9, 2007, SABMiller and Molson Coors Brewing Company announced a joint venture to be known as MillerCoors for their U.S. operations that will market all of their products.

On February 2, 2011 the company purchased Sharp’s Brewery of Cornwall in England for around £20 million.

On May 26, 2011 seventh-generation family member Andrew Molson succeeded Pete Coors as acting Chairman of the company.

In early 2012, the company expanded into the Central and Eastern Europe markets by acquiring the region’s market-leading brewery StarBev from CVC Capital Partners.”
