Miller Brewing refused to be drawn on the details surrounding the resolution of a long-running legal dispute with Canadian brewer Molson.

The two sides have settled a two-year row over the distribution of Miller products in Canada. In 2005, Miller launched legal action to end the licensing agreement with Molson after the Canadian brewer merged with US beer maker Coors.

However, Miller said today (22 March) that it had reached an agreement with Molson and extended their contract for the Canadian market

"We are pleased that we have reached a satisfactory resolution and we look forward to focusing on growing our business in Canada," a Miller spokesman told just-drinks.

At the height of the dispute, Miller claimed that Molson's merger with Coors gave the US brewer access to confidential information on the Miller business. Miller also claimed that its brands would get less attention after Molson's combination with Coors.

A Miller spokesman refused to be drawn further. He said: "We aren't saying more at this point."

A spokesperson for Molson in Canada said the two sides had reached an "amicable agreement" but again refused to comment further for "competitive reasons".

The deal sees Molson brew and sell brands including Miller Lite and Miller High Life for the Canadian market.
