No doubt the Coronavirus is grabbing headlines worldwide, and it's still astounding that anyone in their right mind would make a connection to Corona beer,  and the aforementioned virus, but yet, here we are.

So, how are sales of Corona beer in Sioux Falls?

"Corona sales are simply GREAT in Sioux Falls, and nationally, despite the beer sharing its name with the infamous Coronavirus. Sales up 10% over last year in our local market and over 2% nationally." ~ Manager at Dakota Beverage - the local distributor of Corona beer.

Fact: the news you may have heard in the last few weeks about tanking sales of Corona beer has been...well...fake news. And that bit of misinformation was picked up by several news outlets.

So calm down, put the 98-pack of toilet paperback on the shelf, and have a cold one with lime.
