Wisconsin’s breweries are a tight-knit industry.
Brewers, large and small, local and statewide are offering their support to the Molson Coors family.
“Milwaukee is Brew City,” said Sprecher Brewing Company CEO Sharad Chadha. “Yes we compete, but we are also complimentary to each other as a brewing community.”
“I’ve been in that building and I know a lot of the folks over there,” said Sprecher Chief Commercial Officer Jim Kanter, who once served as Miller Coors General Manager.
Brewers all across Wisconsin took to social media to offer their support.
💔Milwaukee is a close-knit community, and when one of us hurts, we all hurt. We stand with our brothers and sisters at Miller Coors, profoundly saddened – and sending compassion, strength, and healing in the aftermath of today’s senseless act.#wearemillercoors #milwaukeestrong pic.twitter.com/snHN1HfsJb— Sprecher Brewery (@sprecherbrewery) February 27, 2020
Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the tragic events at the Molson Coors Brewing Co. Our roots run deep in Milwaukee — the birthplace of what makes our industry so dear.

Thinking of our friends at @MolsonCoors. The local beer community has now experienced the senseless gun violence that the greater Milwaukee community has dealt with for far too long.— Gathering Place Beer (@GatheringPlBeer) February 27, 2020
