Corona, the fifth best selling beer in America despite horrible taste ratings, is facing a shortage.
The company told The Wall Street Journal it is spending $1.5 billion to expand its main brewery on the Mexican border. It’s also trying to open a new plant in California, with the goal of doubling its output by 2018.
“We’re doubling capacity and brewing at the same time,” an executive from parent company Constellation told WSJ. “There’s nothing like it in the brewery world.”
