Corona Has Become So Popular, There Could Be a Shortage Soon

Do you love yourself some Corona? Better buy up a case or two now as the brewer claims the beer has become some popular, they may not be able to keep up with demand.

Corona sales have increased 10 percent in the last five years (for comparison, Annheuser-Busch sales are down 10 percent since 2008). That rapid growth has the distributor of Corona, Constellation Brands, scrambling to produce more cervezas to keep up with demand.

Currently, the company is working to double the size of the main brewery along the Texas-Mexico border, which is costing 1.5 billion dollars! The company is also said to be looking for a spot for a second brewery in California that could be open by 2018.

Analysts say Corona will keep growing too, possibly by as much as 6 percent in the next 10 years as it adds more cans and taps in bars and restaurants.
