Have you met the whole Coors family? We talked to General Manager of Australasia for Molson Coors, David Coors, about what he wishes more people knew about the brewery.
This 1890 photo captures the dawn of an era of innovation at the brewery. Workers stand near the first mechanical refrigeration unit. Years later, in 1953, Bill Coors would introduce the first refrigerated truck to transport Coors Banquet across the West.
At one time, Coors Banquet was the Coors Brewery’s only beer and could be delivered to just 11 US states – my how times have changed...
Only #brewed with the finest ingredients since 1873. #CoorsBanquet #Original #Heritage
Only the finest ingredients go into a Coors Banquet, this includes Rocky Mountain Spring Water. It's a message that rings as true in 1957, when this billboard went up, as it is today. Just another reason to say, “Gimme a Banquet.”
Make the same call generations have made since 1873 and say, “Gimme a Banquet.”
Brewed to Rocky Mountain perfection for 140 years.
Coors was the first brewery to start a cash for cans program. From the looks of it, people thought it wasn't a bad idea.
True Banquet spirit in every picture, the Legend arrives on Instagram.
Since the beginning, The Banquet Beer has been brewed in the shadow of South Table Mountain. #CoorsBanquet #TheLegend #Original
Take a sip of history.
Coors Banquet wasn't always available nationwide, so people east of the Mississippi had to smuggle their favorite beer across state lines. We talked to Chairman of Molson Coors, Pete Coors, about his favorite smuggling story.
Always brewed with 100% Rocky Mountain water.
Always begin a Banquet with a toast.
We only use the best barley. We've used the same strain of Moravian High Country barley since 1936.
Coors Banquet was not distributed nationwide until 1991. Why? Coors built a cult following with movie stars, presidents and consumers toting the beer back from Colorado or making special trips to buy the uniquely crisp and drinkable beer.
Legend has it that in the late 1800s, thirsty miners threw celebratory banquets, with Coors as the honorary beer because of its superior craftsmanship. This is how we earned the name Banquet.
Back when barrels were actually made of wood, we were filling them with The Banquet Beer.
Back in the early 1900s, some brewery workers bet another worker he couldn't carry a 100-pound barrel of beer from the brewery to the top of South Table Mountain and back without a rest. The undaunted keg carrier won the bet.
We're proud to put our name on this Coors Banquet commercial. Sit back and learn about our family heritage in the only place it's brewed: Golden, Colorado.
There’s plenty of cold Coors in #Calgary. No bull. #CoorsBanquet #Stampede #Rodeo #BanquetCountry

Three cheers for Banquet on draught.
