Miller and Coors are also one and the same now also. The stable of beers that fall under the MillerCoors umbrella is huge. I just noticed they even have Red Dog ... I completely forgot about that beer. I didn't know it was still around.

MillerCoors: Age Verification

If you're ever in Denver, I recommend hitting up the Coors brewery in nearby Golden, Colo., whether you're a fan of Coors beers or not. It's the best beer tour I've been on and you get plenty of drinks both during the tour and after.

Some local news today on MolsonCoors. It looks like Molson Ice and Molson Golden will both be brewed in the Tri-state.

Sort of. They're really more of a combined marketing arm than a combined brewing company. Miller is owned by SAB (South African Breweries), but SAB does not own Coors. It's a strange arrangement. In fact Coors is the only one of the major three that is still American-owned -- and only half-so at that.

Party in the Park is a real pooper now. Just say no to Bud Light. But then it appears that event is targetting the lowest taste denominator in all aspects of what makes a good music fest. Fratboys playing cornhole (when I grew up, that meant something else lol) love their Milwaukee urine (wow, p-word is censored? Don't tell the English).
It's been a couple of years since I grew out of Party in the Park, but as I reacall it was alternating beer sponsors. When it was in the park, it was Budweiser, when it was at the Point, it was Miller (or vice versa). Both sucked, but I at least tried to avoid the Bud weeks. And actually, they used to have at least one booth that served something other than Bud or Miller. I recall some IPAs on tap being served by UC cheerleaders. Can't remember the beer, but I remember the cheerleaders.

The fad that I don't get is these recent college grad dorks who think drinking PBR is cool. OMG, never forget the night I first realized that it was a fad beer when I saw a line up of d-bags drinking PBR longnecks at Monk's in Mt Adams. ugh

PBR is currently the hipster beer of choice, for some reason. Go to a hipster bar, drink PBR.

I'll give the hipsters credit -- if you want to be ironically proletarian, PBR really does deliver a decent bang-for-the-buck ratio, particularly if you can find a hipster joint selling it for two bucks a can/bottle or less.

PBR is cheap and reasonably not awful. there is nothing like drinking at a bar for a few hours and running up a tab of $10 or $12. for my money, i'll usually get Hudy at the same price though.

Moerlein beers are great. To double up on the previous reviews...the OTR, Northern Liberties, and Helles are excellent. I really like the Barbarossa too, among others. I absolutely love supporting local brews, so I go with Mt. Carmel and Rivertown sometimes too. Of course, it's fun to try any good tasting micro brew...recently been having some Avery Brew Co. beers and they've been great. Bell's from MI is awesome too. Anything is better than Bud Light, Miller, etc...that **** is awful.
