Coors Original continues this path forward, taking inspiration from the original recipe and resulting in the same full-bodied flavour you’ve enjoyed in Coors Banquet.

Is there really no where I can get Banquet now unless I go to the US?

Coors Banquet will still be brewed in Golden and available in the U.S. but will not be imported or sold here in Canada. Coors Original offers the same full-bodied flavour you love, brewed and sold in Canada with the same tradition of never compromising since 1873.

Are you taking away Banquet and replacing with Original because you’ll profit more?

Brewing in Canada allows us to reduce our carbon footprint and bring new opportunities to our Canadian brewing team. We look forward to growing in Canada through the hands of Canadians.

Why go through the trouble of changing the name and packaging if it’s the same beer?

Expanding our brewing is a new and important piece in our ongoing story that deserves a name. We call ourselves Coors Original to honour our heritage while marking a new page in our history.
