  • RIP Bill Coors

    102 is one hell of a run!
    William “Bill” Coors, brewing industry leader, dies at 102

    Never really a fan of their products --especially 'Coors Light', which seems redundant-- (but that never stopped me from drinking them when someone else was buying).

      Too bad all their beer was on the light side because they do have a great water source but they did describe their beer as a "Banquet Beer". The kind of beer dad could drink at family gatherings or picnics and not get sloshed. I'm sure Bill witnessed a lot of changes in the beer industry especially before-during and after Prohibition. Anyway R.I.P. Bill.

        I probably single-handedly made him a Billionaire. RIP. A freezing cold Coors on a sweltering hot summer day in So. Tx where its 98+, just hits the spot!

          Back in the 70s Coors wasn't sold east of the Mississippi river (at least in Alabama) so Coors was a very popular beer simply because of it's unavailability. Everyone thought it was the cat's meow but I never liked it that much. I was always a Heineken fan cause I could ask my wife to grab me a heinie. (as in rear end, not a person of German persuasion)

              Yeah Holy Grail. I used to work at an FBO that hangared all these nice business jets. The rich guys would bring Coors back by the case from their business trips and everyone was all giddy and excited. Ooooo, Coors. Bleeech!

                Wasn't Coors a major contributor to anti-2A causes?

                (oh gawd, here he goes AGAIN...)

                Yeah, I remember when that canoe beer* wasn't distributed east of the Mississippi, and everyone made a big deal about it. Funny little two-circle pop top dealio on the cans. Didn't like it then, don't like it now.

                But 102 years---? Respect for that. RIP.

                  When Coors first came east they were the first to ship it in refrigerated trucks otherwise it would spoil.

                    Yes, we anxiously awaited the first shipment of Coors to Ohio.

                      I remember them too, I think first it was available in PA where I lived. Goofy press in on two spots. I think it was also the first that didn't have a pull tab.

                          I know a guy who got busted trying to bring a panel truck full of Kahlua in from Tijuana. Since he was active duty military and no priors, they just confiscated his cargo and gave him a stern talking-to.

                          True story...and I'm glad they didn't take my truck (it was a 1957 Chevy)

                            Hell, from what I understand there was a fairly successful movie based on the premise of bringing Coors to a southeast state. It had a few actors that were, IIRC, semi-well known and a co-star that was a car. Again, IIRC it was a Camaro or some other GM machine.

                            I never saw the movie, just heard about it. Anyone happen to see it? I think it came out in the late 70's or early 80's...
