New beer found in old Coors recipe book
GOLDEN, Colo. -- If it wasn't for a fateful flood a few years back at the Coors Brewery in Golden, a part of Colorado history would have been lost forever. That bit of history lives in an old, dusty and fragile book. In it is the original recipe for the original Coors beer. The original Coors beer has not been in production since 1919, the beginning of prohibition in the United States. When prohibition ended in 1933, a new Coors recipe was brewed, Coors Banquet beer.
