The recently announced merge to form Miller-Coors may be on the horizon, but now local fans of the two individual brewers that formed the new company may be revving up for a fight.
Only days after Miller and Coors went public with the plan, a debate has begun over where the new headquarters should be. With Miller operating out of Wisconsin and Coors running out of Colorado, locals are concerned that they may lose an import part of their respective town’s pride.
One of the most adamant voices in this situation has been that of Wisconsin’s own governor, Jim Doyle.
“I have no doubt that we can present the winning case here,” Doyle told local WISN 12 news. “That’s not to say that happens, but Miller will say it, this has been a great, great place for Miller to do business.”
