Everyone who has enjoyed a good sporting event or two in their life — or is a fan of the neighborhood pub — has heard of the world-famous MillerCoors brand. Having been established well over 100 years ago, Coors has played an integral part in an endless number of parties, celebrations and get-togethers with family and friends.

With such a well-known brand, there is likely something that most of us don’t know about MillerCoors, and that is the company is made up of a number of very popular brands that have gained significant fame in their own rights.
