MillerCoors grew from the dreams of two German entrepreneurs who came to America in the mid-19th century. Miller Brewing Company began when a determined young brewer, Frederick J. Miller, brought his passion for beer to the United States. Miller settled in Milwaukee, where in 1855 he bought the Plank Road Brewery and made his first delicious beer, using yeast that he had carried with him all the way from Europe. Coors Brewing Company tapped its first barrel in 1873, when Adolph Coors opened The Golden Brewery in Colorado. Coors was born in Prussia and apprenticed at a brewery in his teens. With characteristic spirit, he stowed away on a ship to get to America and bring his brewing dream to life.
Both companies had the good luck to be formed from the visions of remarkable businessmen who also happened to be remarkable human beings. Both had the good fortune to have family members carry on the work and legacy of founders. Both enterprises survived Prohibition and two world wars, when brewing materials were scarce and hundreds of other brewers failed to survive. Our founding companies built their success barrel by barrel.
MillerCoors now begins it's own history with two wonderful traditions. Now, their talents, energies and ingenuity come together to form one promising company. MillerCoors' website address is MillerCoors.com.
