Corona Familiar

Corona Familiar is different from Corona Extra and Corona Light as it comes in a large 940ml bottle -- the largest offered by Corona -- with amber-coloured glass instead of the clear transparent type. Corona Familiar is mostly consumed in Mexico and is rare in the United States and Europe.


Corona is not available on tap but only in bottle form. Consumers outside of Mexico drink the beverage with a lime wedge unlike the Mexican people who typically drink it as is. Corona recommends that consumers should consider the nutritional content of any type of Corona beer before drinking the beverage.
