Product Description

A staple at everything from summer beach parties to everyday occasions, Corona Extra is a pilsner-type Mexican beer with a slightly sweet taste and a dash of citrus. Hints of lemon and ginger round out the flavor for a crisp and firm taste. Corona Extra was first introduced in the U.S. in 1981, and became the fastest growing imported beer in U.S. history. Corona Extra has been brewed and bottled in Mexico since 1925, and is the #1 selling imported beer in the U.S. For serving, try adding a fresh wedge of lime to bring out the citrus flavors. We recommend enjoying this simple brew from the bottle (or can), and if possible on a beach somewhere.

Drizly Expert Notes

Corona Extra has become as synonymous with relaxing on the beach as sunscreen, sand or the ocean itself. Born in Mexico and first introduced to the world back in 1925, it's hard to imagine a life today without this world renowned lager, particularly when accented with a juicy wedge of lime around the rim. Created in Mexico, but inspired by European traditions, Corona Extra walks a line between the slightly heavier German lagers of yesterday and the super clean, modern American-style lagers of today.


Corona Extra has a pristine shine to it, clear as the glass bottle that it comes in. Sure, like any beer it can be enjoyed out of a glass, but it's best enjoyed straight out of the bottle (or can!) so that you have less worries about spilling. That's what this beer is all about, less worries. Don't fuss over the flavor, enjoy the subtle honey and malt character, but ultimately just try to savor the moment. Squeeze a bit of lime into the bottle, maybe even a pinch of salt if you want to get crazy, sit back, and let the simplicities envelop you.


The subtle, refreshing character of Corona Extra makes it a perfect pairing for all sorts of spicy foods that need a bit of quenching on your palate. Size it up with a few al pastor tacos, complete with the hot sauce of your choice and a bit of pineapple for that tropical twist. Throw it on the table beside a bundle of homemade tamales, a platter of enchiladas, or a heap of fresh grilled carne asada and bell peppers as your make your own fajitas.


Or, go the ultimately Corona route and pair it with a lounge chair and not a care in the world.
