The company originates from Bass Brewers Limited founded in 1777. In 1926 Bass Brewers Limited merged with William Worthingtons. The company was purchased in 2000 by Interbrew and then forced to change its name due to the purchase by Coors in 2002, as Interbrew kept the name Bass. In 2009 following the merger between Molson and Coors in 2006, Coors Brewers Limited changed its name to Molson Coors Brewing Company (UK) Ltd. wiki
