    Coors May Sell Brewery

    Wisconsin-based City Brewery may buy Memphis plant

    Molson Coors is in talks to sell its Memphis brewery to Wisconsin-based City Brewery.

    Coors announced plans to close the site as part of a series of cost cuts after the merger with Molson.

    City Brewery was reportedly doing due diligence on the Memphis plant including a labor agreement with local unions, before completing the acquisition.

    City Brewery produces under license a variety of energy drinks, including the Hansen-owned Monster, as well as Diageo’s flagship RTD Smirnoff Ice.

    To the best of my knowledge, the Coors plant in Tennessee is a rectification/packaging plant only. High gravity beer is shipped by rail from Colorado. There is no brewery at this location.

    They do produce beer. A while back they began brewing in the East to help meet demand. See the following link:
