Does Budweiser own Corona?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

Budweiser does not own Corona. Grupo Modelo, the largest brewer in Mexico, is the owner of Corona. However, it is worth mentioning that Grupo Modelo is now a subsidiary of Anheuser-Busch InBev, a Belgian-Brazilian multinational beverage and brewing company. Anheuser-Busch InBev acquired Grupo Modelo in 2013, but Grupo Modelo still operates as a separate entity within the larger corporation.

Corona is a popular Mexican lager that has gained worldwide recognition. It is brewed in various locations across Mexico, including Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Tijuana, among others. Grupo Modelo has several breweries throughout the country where the production of Corona takes place. These breweries adhere to the traditional brewing methods and quality standards that have made Corona a beloved beer brand.

Corona’s popularity extends far beyond Mexico, as it is exported to over 150 countries around the globe. Its distinctive clear bottle, refreshing taste, and association with beachside relaxation have contributed to its international success. Corona is often enjoyed with a wedge of lime, which is placed in the bottle’s neck to enhance the flavor and add a touch of citrus.

While Budweiser and Corona are both well-known beer brands, they are not owned by the same company. Budweiser is a brand owned by Anheuser-Busch, which is now part of Anheuser-Busch InBev. Budweiser and Corona may both be part of the same larger corporation, but they operate as separate brands with their own unique identities and brewing processes.
