(United States)
In 1873, Adolph Coors decided that the right water was the key to a successful beer, so he opened his brewing company in Golden, Colorado, where he could take full advantage of the cold mountain water available in the Rocky Mountains. Coors Light was born from those humble beginnings, and it was introduced to America by the the Coors Brewing Company in 1978.

Now produced by Molson Coors, this fruity light beer with a hint of bitterness and an alcohol content of 4.2 percent sells well in the United States, the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe and Asia.

Coors Light continues to consistently rate higher than many other light beers within the United States. As the last of top 10 best selling beers, it holds a market share of about 1.3 percent worldwide.
