    Miller and Coors Merged?

    I was reading an article about a problem in Minnesota about Coors and Miller's complications with selling beer in the state because of no renewal of a agreement due to government shutdown. It mentioned the company MillerCoors. I was not aware that they had merged. I figured a story like that would have made huge headlines and I would have heard about it. Did I miss something? Am I the only one in the dark about this?

    Miller has owned Coors for a few years now.

    It was a pretty big deal when it happened.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    sorry, had to do it.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Beer drinkers should watch the doc called Beer Wars. Now that the law of diminishing returns is in play, the only way for these big companies to profit, is by buying up all the little companies.

    Did you catch that inBev bought Budweiser in 2008? I think the Miller/Coors was in response to this because they happened within a couple week of each.

    I went to college thinking I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

    I thought it was a bigger deal when they put the internet on computers.

    Same thing for drug companies. Buy, merge, layoff, hope the stock goes up.

    Miller-Coors is only a joint venture started in Oct of 2007 for US distribution. Coors has been apart of Molson Coors Brewing Company since 2005.

    Unlike the drug companies though, there is a huge cottage industry of mircobreweries that are nickle and dime-ing the big beer companies to death. I love it. American capitalism at it's finest. (Note to self; pick up a six of Fat Tire on the way home from work tonight) ;)

    I wouldn't say they are nickle and diming them to death. Take Sam Adams for example, it is a recognizable name and is less than 1% of the beer market. However those micro-breweries have forced the Big Beer Companies to expand.

    For Coors it meant expanding their Blue Moon line. For Anheiser Busch it meant developing Seasonal or Specialty beers typically under the Michelob name.

    Again the big beer companies will always be there, but Micro-Breweries and the Craft Beer boom has been very good for beer nerds like myself. It makes a wider variety of beers more readily available and lets people know that there is more to beer than the American Pilsner :)
