Molson Coors plans to open a new brewery in Longueuil

The company said late yesterday that the offer, on a site in Longueuil, is subject to the approval by local authorities. The move follows a decision to build a new facility rather than revamp the existing Notre-Dame street brewery in Montreal. 

"As noted previously, the original Notre-Dame Street facilities are no longer suited to extensive modernisation of our equipment and processes," said Frederic Landtmeters, president & CEO of Molson Coors Canada. "Our intention is to build a modern high-performance brewery fit for Canada while relying on the world-class talent and expertise found here at home in Quebec."

The company did not disclose financial details, however local news reports from earlier in the year said Molson Coors could spend around CAD500m (US$391m) on the site.

In April, Molson Coors announced the construction of a US$147m brewery in British Columbia
