Beer brewing giant Molson Coors Brewing Company ( TAP ) on Wednesday posted mixed third quarter earnings results, as profit beat expectations but revenue fell short of analysts' view.

The Denver-based company reported third-quarter net income of $197.7 million, or $1.09 per share, compared with $194.7 million, or $1.05 per share, in the year-ago period. Excluding special items, adjusted profit was $1.37 per share.

Revenue jumped 25% from last year to $1.2 billion. Sales were bolstered by better performance in the U.S., as well as the addition of the company's Molson Coors Central Europe operations.

On average, Wall Street analysts expected a smaller profit of $1.34 per share, albeit on higher revenue of $1.25 billion.

Molson Coors shares were unchanged in premarket trading Wednesday.
