DENVER — Coors was founded in Colorado in 1873, and with so much history, it may seem odd to some that Molson Coors’ headquarters are moving from downtown Denver to Chicago. “We like to say that no two entities have done more than John Denver and Coors to brand modern Colorado,” said Sam Bock, a historian at the History Colorado Center, where the exhibit “Beer Here” is currently underway. “Without Coors, you don’t have the beer industry in Colorado.
