Molson beer bottles (circa 1925).

Molson beer

While the history of beer in Québec dates back to New France, a British man by the name of John Molson managed to leave quite a mark! He arrived in Montréal in 1782 and, four years later, founded Molson Canada, the oldest brewery in North America that is still in operation.
