Miller Brewing Company, Milwaukee, WI


The Miller Brewing Company is now known as the MillerCoors Company. For anyone who knows their alcoholic beverages, they will know that Miller Coors is all about beer. Miller wanted to be the best beer company in America, and they have strived over the years to grow into the largest production company of beer. They have 288 years experience in brewing beer. Miller Coors began with two German entrepreneurs who came to America. Frederick Miller brought his passion to Milwaukee, where he bought the Plank Road Brewery in 1855. Coors began in 1873 with Adolph Coors. He started the Golden Brewery in Colorado. Coors came over from Prussia and in his teens was an apprentice at a beer brewery. Coors was sold to Miller to form the Miller Coors company. Coors is still open in Colorado, but the main company is out of Milwaukee.

Miller Lite is the flagship brand. It was the first lite beer in 1975 to grace the shelves and has always been known for its lower calorie content. It has won four gold rewards. Coors Light is the fourth best selling beer in the U.S. since 1978. Many find Coors to be flavorful. Miller Coors is in good company with Blue Moon Belgian White. Blue Moon is a soft beer. It doesn't have an aftertaste, and works for those who do not like the darker beers. The Belgian White came from the cloudy white appearance of the beer. Belgian White is a Belgium beer that has roots from 300 years ago. Adding it to Blue Moon has enhanced its taste. This beer was launched in 1995.

Peroni Nastro Azzurro was imported from Rome. It is the number one brand in Italy and is currently found in 38 countries. Pilsner Urquell is another international success from Pilsen, Czech Republic. It was first made in 1842 with a golden color and light body. These are two other beers sold that are in the great list of beers, and though they are not Miller or Coors they fit right in.

Miller High Life was created in 1903 as a lager. It has a darker appearance and rich taste that supposedly takes drinkers back to the "High Life.'' George Killian's Irish Red is an Irish beer from Enniscorthy. The recipe was created in1864. It is an amber beer with a creamy head.

Miller Coors has made a number of acquisitions over the years in order to sell popular beers. Like minds tend to create top beers like Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve, which includes a number of different beers that have been aged. There is a 37 step process to the brewing. Another on the beer list is the 1986 Milwaukee's Best Light. It offers a premium taste, according to the company. Miller and Coors have both refined their brewing process to make their beers some of the best in the U.S. They have also made sure that their beers are in some of the greatest beers of history.
