Molson Coors Overhauls Golden Colorado Brewery
On October 6 Molson Coors broke ground on a massive multiyear overhaul of its brewery in Golden, Colo., that will improve its brewing performance, flexibility and productivity.
The multi-hundred-million-dollar investment,(!) will completely overhaul the beer-making infrastructure at the massive brewery, which ranks as one of the largest in the world, according to according to Beer & Beyond. “It includes the addition of more-efficient fermenting, aging and filtration facilities, as well as a state-of-the-art upgrade to the so-called government cellars where the brewery stores beer prior to packaging.”
The project, which is slated to stretch well into 2024, is dubbed G150 (a nod to the upcoming 150-year anniversary of Adolph Coors’ launch in 1873) and will also reduce energy and water usage by 15% each and waste by 35%.
