Corona Sales Decline for First Time in 16 Years

Post by phjim »

From Advertising Age: "Other Brews May Have Corona Singing Blues"

Corona has long been miles away from the ordinary -- and the competition. But for the first time in 16 years, the seemingly unstoppable Mexican import is actually seeing sales decline.

Wall Street analysts and some of Corona's rivals point to a frothing head of new or reinvigorated brands that appeal to traditional Mexican import drinkers -- including Dos Equis, Miller Chill, the forthcoming Bud Light Lime and even Corona's resurgent sibling Modelo Especial -- as creating a more difficult competitive environment than the No. 1 import has previously faced.

A-B last year also launched Landshark Lager, a niche brand that swiped Corona's longtime Jimmy Buffet tour sponsorship and nosed its way into Mr. Buffett's Margaritaville restaurant chain.

How dare they compare Dos Equis to the other "Mexican Beers".....it is in a class by itself (Negro Modelo would also be in that class if it had been on the list)

Landshark is really good too! But my fave for all time is still Leinenkuegel's Sunset Wheat. MMMM...........

I think it comes back, once again, at least in part, to the economy. At $7.99 or so a sixpack, it's not cheap, as beer goes. I don't buy as much Corona as I used to. I'm not one of the people who substituted Landshark, I just buy less premium beer than I used to. Once in a while I'll pick up Corona, Dos Equis or Negro Modelo, but as the exception rather than the rule. And somewhere along the line I also decided to buy American, so I buy more Sam Adams and less Mexican.

We've switched to gluten-free beer whereas we used to either have a) a keg full of something microbrew or b) Corona.
