Molson Coors Canada Takes Triple Honours at Canadian Brewing Awards

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2010) - At the 8th edition of the Canadian Brewing Awards, Molson Coors Canada took honours for each of Molson Export, Molson M and Molson Dry. Molson Export and Molson M won gold medals in the North American style blonde/golden ale and North American-style premium lager categories respectively, whereas Molson Dry earned a bronze medal in the North American-style lager category.

This prestigious competition groups together brewers from across Canada and uses blind taste-testing to choose the best beers in each category. The 2010 edition of the competition drew record attendance, with 76 breweries presenting a total of 390 beers in 31 categories. The event proved to be the largest of its kind to date for Canadian brewers. 

"We are extremely proud of the recognition bestowed upon the company by the experts of this renowned competition organized to honour the best beers in the country. Results demonstrate yet again that Molson Coors Canada brews exceptional beers which are highly appreciated by Canadians," stated Dave Perkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Molson Coors Canada.

Medals were presented during Toronto's first ever Beer Week before brewery representatives from across the country. A panel of 20 judges scored beers based on the following criteria: flavour, appearance, aroma, sensation in the mouth, and overall impression.
