Corona is Bringing the Tropics with New Corona Refresca®

CHICAGO, April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The maker of the No. 1 import beer brand family in the U.S.1 is bringing its tropical and carefree attitude to a new category – Flavored Malt Beverages (FMB) – with the launch of Corona Refresca, a premium alcohol-spiked refresher. This is the first flavored malt beverage in the brand’s 37-year history, which will enable the brand to capture new, flavor-seeking consumers.

“The strong brand equity of Corona allows us to keep the iconic lifestyle at the heart of everything we do. We are propelling Corona forward to address consumer’s desire for flavorful experiences with new innovations, like Corona Refresca,” said Ann Legan, Vice President of Marketing for Corona. “This expansion of the brand is anchored in Corona’s carefree lifestyle and inspired by the tropics, helping fans pause and celebrate the moments that truly matter with a new flavor-forward beverage in-hand.”

Research shows that consumers are seeking a flavor-forward, alternative malt beverage experience2 and in one year, the brand has significantly expanded to proactively meet the diverse and changing needs of beer drinkers – with Corona Refresca as well as Corona Premier that launched nationally in 2018. To support this innovative launch, Corona Refresca will implement marketing support through new national TV spots, digital, out-of-home, social media and public relations.

Corona Refresca has a refreshingly delicious taste and comes in three tropical flavors: Passionfruit Lime, Guava Lime and Coconut Lime. With an ABV of 4.5%, Corona Refresca offers a crisp and flavorful taste with 199 calories per 12-ounce serving. Guava Lime and Passionfruit Lime flavors will each be available in six-packs for an SRP of $9.99. A 12-pack that include all three tropical flavors – Guava Lime, Passionfruit Lime and Coconut Lime – will be available for an SRP of $16.99.
