Corona beer has always been thought of as a refreshing drink to be consumed while lounging on white sand beaches on some tropical island. Corona is the top-selling imported beer in Australia. It is often served with a lime or lemon wedge in the neck of the bottle.
Although some may think the company’s name is Corona, it’s actually produced by a company called Grupo Modelo – Corona is simply a brand produced by that company. Grupo Modelo is a large brewery in Mexico. They were established in the mid 1800’s under the name Cervecería Modelo, and in 1925 they became one of the top beer suppliers in Mexico, largely due to the creation of Corona beer. The company started to do really well when Pablo Diez took over. He is the person responsible for creating Corona beer, and for the idea to distribute it worldwide.
