Molson/Coors Merger-I was Canadian

It is enough to make a Canadian cry in his beer. I am Canadian, well no more, time to make up a new saying I was Canadian.

Hockey and beer are just two things you don't mess with. Oh I almost forgot timmys coffee. Make mine a double double to go.

Nope Molson brewed Coors products for Canada and vise versa.
Molson also stopped brewing Carlsberg ealier in teh year (there contract ran out, there was a big fuss over it too)

rickhd, have you forgotten that Timmie's "merged" with Wendys International in 1995 (TH Canada is 95% franchise owned and operated though and does remain an seperate entity)

The beer is going to stay the same and be brewed here.

For the record - Carlsberg is now brewed in Canada by the same company that brews Moosehead and Tuborg (Premium Beer Company).
