About Coors Brewing Company
Coors Brewing Company was founded in 1873 by Adolph Coors, who chose the Clear Creek Valley in Golden, Colo., for his new brewery because of the pure water in the nearby Rocky Mountain springs.

About J Balvin
J Balvin has been hailed by Billboard as “the biggest breakout act Latin music has seen in many years.” Creating a unique urban fusion that blends influences from Puerto Rico’s pioneering Reggaeton artists, the distinct Colombian rhythms of his heritage and a love for progressive Hip-Hop and R&B, J Balvin is undeniably Latin music’s most significant new artist. This recognition stems from three consecutive chart-topping singles – “6 AM” and “Ay Vamos” from J Balvin’s breakthrough album “La Familia” and the fast follow-up ascent to #1 on Latin Airplay of his latest single “Ginza”. Billboard recently certified that “Ay Vamos” was the #1 overall Latin single in the United States across the first six months of 2015, and its related video has received well over 500 Million Views. Now “Ginza” is picking up the pace further for the second half of this year, as it instantly set a new Spanish-language video record for debut views upon its launch, and has now skyrocketed into Vevo’s overall Top-5 videos in early September (charting right alongside Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber, while exceeding weekly views of The Weekend, One Direction, and many more). Driven by his irreverent humor and openness with fans, J Balvin has also become a social media powerhouse– with over 3 Million Instagram fans.
