German art of brewing & the water of the Rocky Mountains

As with many other US light berries, the roots of Coors Light are directly in Germany. The founder of the Coors Brewing Company was the German Adolph Coors from Wuppertal. He founded Coors Beer in Golden, Colorado, not far from the Rocky Mountains in 1873.

Coors was of the opinion that the water used plays a decisive role in the quality of a beer. This was one of the reasons why Coors chose Golden as the location for their brewery. After all, the water in the Rocky Mountains was considered to be one of the cleanest and best in the United States.

To this day, Coors Bier has not lost this strong relationship with the Rockys. The famous mountains are still the main source of Coors Light's water and the peaks are prominently featured on the Coors logo. If you should buy your cans of Coors Light, the Rockys will immediately catch your eye.
