Brewing titan Molson Coors undergoes name change, looks to cut up to 500 jobs TOM DAYKIN | MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL
USA TODAY MILWAUKEE The parent of MillerCoors LLC will be moving hundreds of corporate office jobs to Milwaukee, a restructuring move that will result in the loss of 400 to 500 employees throughout the company.
The number of jobs coming to Milwaukee isn't yet known, a company representative said Wednesday. But Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said it will be hundreds of good-paying white-collar jobs.
Barrett, at a City Hall news conference following the company's announcement, said his administration and Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. officials have been working Molson Coors Brewing Co., the corporate parent of MillerCoors, on plans to move jobs to Milwaukee.
New phase, new name The move will grow a workforce that has its roots in Miller Brewing Co., even as the MillerCoors name is dropped.
MillerCoors will now be known as Molson Coors Beverage Co.

They should call it Molson Coors DP0622 Company
Coors will no longer be based in Colorado?
Sell the naming rights to ‘em.
Looks like office jobs. Us blue-collar folks will likely stay in Golden.
You got it. No more Rocky Mountain spring water. get used to ChiCongo sewer water and corn syrup.
The job shift to Milwaukee is tied to a Molson Coors plan to simplify its corporate structure and cut costs.
The company will move from a corporate center and four business units to two business units: one for North America and one for Europe.
The North America business unit will consolidate the U.S. and Canada units and corporate center, the company said, allowing to it maneuver faster with its large brand lineup.
Molson Coors will close its Denver office, with the MillerCoors Chicago office becoming the North American operational headquarters.
I’ve become a beer snob. I won’t touch any InBev stuff. No Miller/Coors. I stick with the imported German beer or the local craft brews. No IPAs. Brown ales in winter, pilsners in summer.
How are ya man!?!??
Haven’t gotten an awesome pic of Texas in a while!!
Couldn’t care less. Coors tastes like pish-wasser. Give me a good old Yeung anytime!
You know, most things that people rip on Chicago are true...but don’t rip on Lake Michigan/Chicago water man...its among the best around out of the tap.
This should pair nicely with the recently revived "Banquet beer" advertising campaign. Betcha Sam Elliot's voice-over will be gone when the next Coors ads debut.
No IPAs!!! What??? I enjoy an occasional lager every now and then and brown ales or even Guinness is okay. But the big commercial beers aren't welcome in my home.
“MillerCoors will now be known as Molson Coors Beverage Co.”
I’m all FOR jobs in Milwaukeestan, DESPITE the current Mayor and all that have come before him in these past 112 years.
That said, my Great Uncles, who all worked for Miller, are spinning in their graves, I’m sure. ;)
Yeah, the allure was totally based on unavailability. I remember drinking a can of the stuff while visiting relatives in Texas. The thought that immediately came to mind was "Well, this stuff is over-hyped".
The CEO’s of Coors and Guiness were having a drink together. The Coors boss ordered a Silver Bullet and the Guiness chief asked for a lemonade.
After getting a confused look from Coors, Guiness said, “If you’re not going to drink, then I won’t either.”
Sounds like they drank too much of the product.
Hold my Coors and watch this!!!
In the 1980’s these mergers would have shocked Colorado. But with all the micro brews today in the state, this will generate a shrug.
