In 1786, more than 60 years before John Labatt founded his brewery, John Molson put his own name on a Canadian beer. Molson, first opened in Montreal, became one of the country’s most storied family businesses, running through seven generations of Molson leadership. Yet the patriotic “I am Canadian” beer maker would marry with its American competition in 2005, when it merged with the Coors Brewing Company, one of the largest brewers in the U.S. at the time. The resultant pairing was called the Molson Coors Brewing Company, which is now the world’s seventh-largest beer maker by volume. The corporation maintains dual headquarters, one in Montreal, Que., the other in Denver.
