Viator Exclusive: Corona Brewery Tour and Beer Tasting in Mexico City
Viator Exclusive: Corona Brewery Tour and Beer Tasting in Mexico City information and booking
Tour description provided by Viator
What’s better than a cold Corona on the beach? For fans of the iconic beer, it’s Viator’s exclusive tour of the Corona factory in Mexico City. Get a behind-the-scenes look at how Grupo Modelo brews favorites such as Corona, Modelo Especial, Victoria, Pacifico and Negra Modelo. Walk through the facilities, sample cerveza and buy your own bottles to bring home (own expense).
Take off from your Mexico City hotel in the morning for a trip to the Grupo Modelo brewery. Since 1925, the factory has bottled some of the world’s top beers, including the crown jewel of beach brews: Corona.
During the tour of the grounds, your English-speaking guide translates as a Grupo Modelo employee rattles off production and historical facts in Spanish. If you aren’t fluent, our exclusive trip to the brewery is the one to take – all other tours are conducted in Spanish.
Along the way, inhale a malty aroma wafting from special mills that grind barley, look up at stainless steel vats of boiling brews and gape at the finished product in the bottling area. As you learn more about the intricate production process, it might come as a surprise to learn the factory had already produced 8 million bottles of Corona and Modelo by 1928, only three years after opening. Today, Grupo Modelo makes a total of 14 brands that include Victoria and Pacifico.
All that walking might make you thirsty. Luckily, a tasting is included! Sip on freshly brewed lagers and pilsners, among other drinks. Other beverages and food can be purchased at your own expense.
If you’re in high spirits after your samples, head to the gift store to purchase some of the cherished cerveza. It's the perfect way to commemorate this tour only available to Viator customers. From there, you will be transported back to your Mexico City hotel. Don’t forget to buy some limes before you head to the pool or beach!
