Best Alternatives for Corona Beer

In these tough times, when people around the world don’t know what to do, one thing is sure – a bottle of good beer can relieve stress. There are a lot of good brands out there, and for those that like Mexican lager ones, the best known is Corona beer.

There have been some tweets that the sales of this brand had declined because of the coronavirus. We can assure you that this is not true. People are still drinking Corona, and they are enjoying it, and no, you can’t get coronavirus from it. But if you don’t like being reminded about the world crisis every time you open a beer bottle, we’ve made a list of alternative Mexican lagers for you.

Here is our list of other Mexican style beers available on the market, there are some good ones on the list, and some that are not that good:

1. Sol (Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma)

This beer is so tasty, with a slightly sweet, clean and crisp aroma. The flavor is refreshing, and if you live Corona beer, you will love this one also.

2. Victoria (Grupo Modelo)

This beer comes from Mexico’s oldest beer brand, which was established in 1865. And yes, it’s the same brewery that makes Corona. The flavor of it is a bit bready but sweet. It’s not that light, but also it’s not heavy, it’s a perfect balance.

3. Pacífico (Grupo Modelo)


If you want a beer that you’ll drink while chilling, Pacífico, with its dry finish, is a good option. This beer is perfect for lazy afternoons at the beach, or your house – it doesn’t matter.

4. Modelo Especial (Grupo Modelo)

Another beer that tastes almost like Corona is Modelo Especial. A balanced aroma of corn, with a hint of bitterness, will teleport you to sunny Mexico.

5. Most Interesting Lager in the World (Ex Novo Brewing)

This beer is a light, but very exciting. It’s tasty and bright and perfect for a sunny day.

6. Sesion Cerveza (Full Sail Brewing)

Perfect beer if you need to refresh and relax at the end of a hard working day in summer. It’s a bit lemony, but only the ideal amount of it.

7. Tecate (Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma)


It is not the best beer out there, and if you don’t like soft beers, you can skip this one. But if you want just one or two to pass your time, you can try this one.

8. Bohemia Clásica (Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma)


An exciting mix of aromas are in this Bohemia Clásica, and it won’t be everyone’s bottle of beer. For those that want to try something exciting and new, go for it.

9. Carta Blanca (Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma)

Another interesting mix of flavors, with a hint of apple. It is not everyone’s favorite, but it has its fans.

10. Dos Equis Special Lager (Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma)


Not the best beer out there, so if you can, you should avoid it. But maybe someone who is not an experience beer drinker and lover would love it.

11. Clasica Amber Lager (Xicha Brewing)

This beer has a slight hint of lime and a bit too much of acidity. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t exactly taste like a Mexican style beer.

12. Cusqueña (Union de Cervecerias Peruanas Backus y Johnston)

If you are into metallic flavor beers, this can be your next favorite, which we doubt. But anyone else that doesn’t like that in a beer can skip this one for sure.
