Company History

For more than 60 years, On Tap Credit Union has worked to offer the highest quality and lowest cost financial products and services possible. Chartered in 1954, the credit union had only 30 members and was located in a small office in the Coors Brewery in Golden, Colorado.

On Tap Credit Union was founded by employees of the Brewery as a means to help each other build their savings and attain affordable loans.

In fact, our archives show that Adolph Coors III and Bill Coors quickly gained the support of the employees to launch the creation of the Adolph Coors Employees’ Credit Union.  The official Certificate of Organization was approved on February 5, 1954.  We are certainly glad that the State Commissioner approved the desires of the Coors Brewery employees to establish this fine credit union!

Today there are nearly 20,000 members who work with financial advocates at On Tap Credit Union for home loans and business loans to checking accounts, certificates and retirement accounts, to credit cards and savings accounts for children. On Tap Credit Union offers products and services to individuals, families and businesses in Jefferson, Denver, Boulder and Larimer counties and has more than $220 million in assets. Many things have changed in those decades since its founding, but one thing has clearly remained the same says President and CEO Tracie Wilcox:

“We’ve worked hard to blend the best: a proud beer heritage, an authentic outdoor lifestyle and a unique brand of service that includes individual banking solutions for everyone. We want to be our members' trusted financial partner for life.”
