Thread: How one of the worst tasting and lowest rated beers keeps selling well

  1. #1

    Default How one of the worst tasting and lowest rated beers keeps selling well

    Constellation Brands (STZ), best known as a wine empire, is once again crooning about Corona. Last year it bought all of the Mexican brewery that makes the beer and the company that imports it to the U.S. The results have been intoxicating: Profit in the recent quarter almost doubled because of a surge in Corona sales.

    Corona is now the fifth bestselling beer in the U.S., selling more than double the amount of Heineken, the next most popular import. It’s growing while the rest of the beer business is drying up or being siphoned off by new small-batch brewers. Last year, Corona sales rose 4 percent.

    Here’s the curious thing: Corona is not very good—at least by most critical accounts.

    After 3,200 reviews at RateBeer.com, Corona has a grade of 1.69 out of 10. The Beer Advocate gives Corona an “awful” rating of 55 out of 100 and the following description: “faded aromas of sulphur, faint skunk, mild cooked veggies.”

    Not only is Corona not very good—it’s one of the worst Mexican beers.

    Alcoholics always buy cheap liquor and beers.

    Also Heineken is overrated as hell. It just has the name and fame. For good tasting beer you really can't go wrong with Belgian beers.

    I'm pretty sure corona is brewed and stored incorrectly for what it is supposed to be which is why you need to add a lime or lemon to it not some bullshit about keeping flies away smh

    Most standard beers are garbage anyway. Heineken sucks. Beck's is okay. I remember that Eric Visions cat wanking on about great his beer knowledge was and Dos Equis was great, it tastes like water lol

    Step your game up Apollo, there are much better tasting beers than Corona.

    Agreed Jasper, Belgian beer is probably my favorite.

    Some of the German beers are very good aswell.

    ^I'm sure this has a lot to do with the popularity, the whole gimmick of adding a slice to it.

    Its one of the few common beers chicks drink. Make a bitch drink in the alcohol beverage industry and you got a whole different market captured. Happened with those pre-mixed drinks in cans in the past few years. Make sweet flavored whisky like the movie Whisky Business.

    Things could be worse. You could live in Jersey and be a drinking victim of 'Operation Swill'
