About the Brewery
Coors Brewing Company was founded in 1873 by Adolph Coors and Jacob Scheueler in Golden, Colorado. In 1880, Coors would buy out his partner and become the sole owner of the brewery. Coors grew rapidly until 1916 when Colorado enacted their prohibition law. During this time Coors would establish the Adolph Coors Brewing and Manufacturing Company, which included Herold Procelain and other ventures. The brewery produced malted milk and near beer, while they relied heavily on the porcelain company as well as their cement and real estate companies to stay afloat. Prohibition ended in 1933 and Coors was one of a handful of breweries that survived.
In 2004 Coors merged with Molson to become Molson Coors Brewing Company. Molson Coors Brewing Company is the world’s 3rd largest brewing company, and their brewery in Golden, CO is the largest single brewery facility in the world!
Tobin’s Review 4 out of 5
Coors Banquet has a nice light gold hue with almost no head. The beer has a sweet malty aroma with a nice light, slightly sweet full mouth grain. It’s a nice light drinkable beer. I honestly never knew I would be a Coors fan, but it’s a tasty light lager!
