Molson is part of the huge Molson Coors Brewing company which now has about a fifth of the world beer market. Originally starting in Montreal by the Molsen family it’s headquarters still tody sit on the banks of the St. Lawerence River. The Dry is one of a range of Molson branded beers it contains 5.5% alcohol with a fruity yet crisp finish. There are also a couple of variants including a 6.5%, 7.5%, 8.5% and whopping 10.1% brews and some pretty fancy 250ml 6.5% cans called ‘Cold Shots’ which are sold in some markets. The beer was only launched back in 1989 and has done pretty well for itself winning even a North American Specialty Lager Gold medal at the 2002 World Beer Cup.

The huge Molson Coors Brewing Company has a very tasty boutique brand available in North America called Blue Moon. They produce a Belgian stle white beer which has a distinct orange flavour, in fact many pubs serve this beer with a slice of orange, just as they do the lime and lemon with Corona. This wheat beer is a milky orange colour and is not filtered, it is spiced with both orange peel and the traditional coriander and hops. The beer is usually sold with a 5.5% alcohol vol although in some US states it is a little lower. The brewery even makes a few specialty beers during the year including a very tasty Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale which usually hits the shelves just in time for Halloween each year. You might think Yuk! Pumpkin, but trust us it is lovely and much nicer than it sounds.
Here’s a news story which could only happen in America. A perfect tenant has moved out of a quiet neighborhood and left a little surprise for the real estate agent- 70,000 beer cans. They were over a metre high all through the house and in some places in boxes up to the roof. The guy liked a beer, but didn’t seem to think the empty can should go in the trash- he might have been waiting for one of those cash a can days. The 70,000 cans were all Coors Light and the tenant lived in the house for 8 years which means he must have knocked off about a slab of cans every day he was there. As you can see from the You Tube news report they ended up tracing down he man, he doesn’t touch the stuff any more, maybe because he’s too lazy to open the can? who knows.
