Description

  • Corona Extra is a 4.5% pilsner-style beer.
  • Iconic Mexican lager, served with a lime.
  • One for sunny days and barbecues.

Corona is a premium beer, classic and authentic, recognised worldwide for its high quality, distinctive taste and image plus its iconic lime ritual. 

It was first brewed in 1927 at Grupo Modelo brewery in Mexico City. It’s popularity soon spread over the border, and by 1933 Corona Extra was being exported to the US. Today, it’s the most sold imported beer in the States.

Did you know: No one really knows why lime began to be added in the neck of bottles of Corona Extra. Some stories suggest it was to keep flies out and some suggest it sanitises the bottle top, but most people suggest it just tastes even better with a hint of real lime. However, don’t be surprised when you go to Mexico that your Corona doesn’t have a lime in it! 

Ingredients: Water, barley malt, maize, hops, yeast.

Beer Colour
