Corona is sponsoring the Florida Aquarium’s outdoor bar

The beer company also has pledged donations to aid conservation efforts.

TAMPA — The Florida Aquarium’s cantina has a new look thanks to a partnership with Corona.

The outdoor bar that overlooks downtown Tampa’s waterfront has been rebranded as the “Corona Cove.” Corona now has a prominently displayed sculpture and branded decor throughout the bar area.

As part of the new partnership, Corona says it will donate $1 to the aquarium for every case of its beer sold in Hillsborough County in the months of June and July.

“Corona has long asked consumers to ‘Find Your Beach’ and thanks to this new partnership with the Florida Aquarium, we will come together to drive awareness for the need to protect those oceans and beaches for years to come,” Ann Legan, vice president of brand marketing for the Corona family, said in a statement.

Corona is part of fortune 500 company Constellation Brands and the leading imported beer brand in the U.S. No other financial details about the new partnership were disclosed.

The Florida Aquarium is known for its efforts to rescue and restore the state’s sea turtle and coral populations.

The bar will be open during regular business hours and for special events.
