Suds on the Chicago River

So, if you'll remember your beer history, Molson merged with Coors.  And then Miller announced a merger with Molson Coors to form MillerCoors.  Well, now it looks like the whole shebang could end up in Chicago.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the new company has picked Chicago for its new home and that 400 jobs will move here.  But where, exactly?  There's not enough time to build a new tower (sad), so it's scouting locations in existing properties.

The Apparel Center is said to be high on the list of candidates.  A couple of years ago that building scored the Sun-Times when it moved to make way for the Trump Tower.  Maybe we'll see another giant corporate logo hanging from the building's horrible facade.  It could only make things better.
