Corona Extra beer will be on available on draft for the first time ever beginning March 10, and Turlock will be one of the first cities to try it.
Rico’s Pizza in Turlock and Ceres have been selected as test markets for the draft beer. Just three markets nationwide are receiving Corona Extra on draft in this initial test market.
The Ceres Rico’s Pizza location will receive the beer on the first rollout date, March 10, with the Turlock location expected to receive the beer at the beginning of April, said Rico’s Pizza owner Jesse Aguilar.
This will be the first time Corona Extra, which was introduced in the U.S. nearly 35 years ago, will be available on draft.
Corona Extra draft will be available in three U.S. markets beginning March 10, Turlock being one of them. Corona Light draft will also become available in 35 U.S. markets, including New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and Dallas, on that date.
Test markets were chosen based on previous sales of the two beers, said Aguilar.
Rico’s Pizza in Turlock is located at 2321 W. Main St.
