The MillerCoors partnership is now five years old, and analysts say the joint venture between Miller Brewing and Coors Brewing Co. has saved nearly $900 million over that period through lower costs.
A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report says the two companies merged five years ago Monday.
Since then MillerCoors' annual net income has risen 37 percent, from $892 million in 2009 to $1.22 billion last year.
The rise in income comes even as sales volume has fallen 6 percent. That's partly because of the cost savings and because beer prices are up.
The company says the number of brewery employees hasn't changed in five years.
But there are about 40 percent few office workers, with some of the jobs shifting to the company's new headquarters in Chicago.
With snow, sleet, freezing rain and even flood warnings hitting Wisconsin, Monday was a messy day on the road for drivers.
Freezing mist becoming freezing rain and sleet toward Tuesday morning, then ending by late morning. Be very careful out there! Sunshine for Wednesday.
