Corona Extra is a pale lager produced by Cervecería Modelo in Mexico and owned by AB InBev in Belgium. It is one of the top-selling beers worldwide. Corona is commonly served with a wedge of lime or lemon in the neck of the bottle to add tartness and flavour.
Since 1998, Corona Extra has been the top-selling imported drink in the United States.
According to Sinebrychoff, a Finnish company owned by the Carlsberg Group, Corona Extra contains barley malt, corn, hops, yeast, antioxidants (ascorbic acid), and propylene glycol alginate as a stabilizer. Propylene glycol alginate is a synthetic, colorless, odorless, tasteless liquid that belongs to the same chemical class as alcohol.
Some bars and restaurants serve a “Coronarita”, a beer cocktail that consists of a bottle of Corona upturned to drain into a margarita.
