The Corona beer brand produces four different beers in its portfolio. Additionally, Corona has added lines of seltzers and malt-based Refrescas to the fold. So let’s look at these beers and bevies to find your favorite. 


All Four Corona Beer Varieties Listed

Corona beer is synonymous with beach parties and living the island life. Corona was first introduced to the United States in 1979. Corona has grown to be the fifth best-selling beer in the US and is one of the world’s most popular and recognizable imported beers.   


Corona Extra

Corona Extra is the brand’s flagship product. It is an international pale lager made with European malts, unmalted corn, hops, water, and yeast. This golden liquid is a perennial favorite at any beach bar, with its customary lime wedge served atop its clear bottle.

  • Alcohol: 4.6%
  • Calories: 148

Corona Premier

Introduced in 2018, Corona Premier is Corona’s ultra-low calorie light lager. Their website describes the flavors of Corona Premier as “sweet, crisp, and even body. It, too, is brewed with barley malt, unmalted cereal grains, and hops. Corona Premier was the first new beer by Corona in 29 years with an aim at carb conscious market; this beer has almost half the carbohydrates of Corona Extra.

  • Alcohol: 4%
  • Calories: 90

Corona Light

At just nine more calories than Corona Premier, Corona Light is branded as a flavorful light beer and “pilsner-style lager.” Corona suggests complimenting the hop flavor of Corona Light with foods that are spicy and have citrus. Try it with Baja-style Fish Tacos or Carne Asada with a squeeze of a lime wedge. 

  • Alcohol: 4%
  • Calories: 99

Corona Familiar

Corona Familiar is a much fuller-flavored beer of the four types in the Corona family. It is maltier than Extra and has more alcohol content and calories than Light and Premier. It is also the only Corona beer packaged in brown bottles. However, the beer’s 32-ounce squatty bottles are notable, offering a fun, rustic take on the classic beach beer.

  • Alcohol: 4.8%
  • Calories: 156

In addition to their classic, island-vibe lagers, the Corona brand offers a line of Seltzers and cocktail-inspired seltzeritas to tap into new and younger markets. Corona Seltzers are gluten-free, are available in variety packs, and come in a selection of refreshing flavors.
