Good news, Corona lovers! A large brewery expansion is in the works for this fan-favorite brand of cerveza.

The expansion is linked to concern from the beer's owner, Constellation Brands, about their ability to meet the recent, rapidly growing demand for Corona.

Shipping nearly 10 percent more beer than it did five years ago, Corona is now the fifth-best-selling beer overall in the US. And it doesn't show any signs of slowing down.

The massive expansion will double the size of the main brewery on the Texas-Mexico border, as well as add a second brewery in California.
