“In June 2013 the company (Constellation Brands), which formerly imported Corona and other Modelo brands to the United States, acquired the US rights to those brands as a part of an anti-trust settlement permitting Modelo’s acquisition by Anheuser-Busch InBev, along with a brewery in Piedras Negras, Mexico. It now produces its own versions of those products for the US, with Modelo serving all other countries.”
So where are the Constellation Brands version of the Modelo brands and Corona brand brewed? And shouldn’t they have a separate entry for the US market?
If the recipes have remained the same, should there be dual entries? Fosters Lager comes to mind.
The brewer markets this same or near-same product by more than one name. This can be the result of a brewer distributing this beer under different names in different countries, or the brewer simply changing the name, but not the recipe, at different points in time.
Yes, most of the macro brewers have similar set ups. I don’t think they qualify for new entries unless we have some evidence indicating they are very different recipes and considered different beers by the brewers.
