the 3L mighty Molson beer bottle

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

 

I hope everyone had a good Christmas.

 

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get one of these 2010 Vancouver Olympics 3L Molson Canadian bottles.

The reason I ask is my father-in-law got me one with some pic's at a silent auction. it was his special Christmas gift to me. Well, I packed it in the van thinking there is no way 3L of beer would freeze and the damn thing blew up like a grenade. So now I need to find one to complete the gift once again. BTW, it was full of water I discovered as I cleaned up my wife's van... Any info either here or PM would be great, thanks!

That was probobly a one off thing Molson did for promotion of the gold medal win hense why you father-in-law got it at an auction.

To Quote Peter Nowlan (Geoff Molson signed them)

 

"We wanted to create a signature Canadian tribute to recognize these athletes' amazing achievements,” said Molson Coors CMO Peter Nowlan. "We borrowed this tradition from global sporting events like Formula 1, but Canadianized it to immortalize this special moment for both our athletes and our country."

 

Don’t bother trying to buy one to fancy up your Friday night–Victory bottles aren’t for sale. All you have to do to get one, though, is win an Olympic medal.
