Over next 18 mos, Coors will add 1.6-1.7 mil bbls to Memphis (cost: $70 mil), new ?beer supply logistics system? ($10 mil) and ?new transport logistics system? ($5 mil). Coors also got about 700,000 bbls of Keystone capac-ity in Canada as part of Molson deal, which ?could allow? Coors to ?produce nearly twice that amount? of Co-ors' beers in Golden ?by reducing time lost on line switching,? according to Andrew. Coors recent gross margin ?deterioration? because longnecks jumped to 21% of mix in 2000 from 18% in 99. Could be 23-24% in 2001.
