Corona Extra is the number-one selling beer in Mexico and is the leading export brand from Mexico. It was first brewed in 1925 by Cerveceria Modelo, which is located in Mexico City. It’s a light tasting, crisp beer with not much carbonation. Corona Extra is best enjoyed very cold on a hot summer’s day as it is a huge thirst quencher.
