Greater Mexico City
With origins in the 1920s, Modelo was first brewed alongside fellow local beer Corona at the Mexico City brewery Cervecería Modelo in 1925. For decades, these two beers dominated Mexican beer culture before eventually making their way to the U.S. In 1990, Modelo Especial introduced American beer drinkers to a different kind of Mexican beer: a full-flavored lager rich with a smooth taste and crisp finish.
Since the early 2010’s Modelo has been under the ownership of AB-InBev.
Pouring a crystal clear brilliant gold colour with long lasting white foam. This lager has rich aromas of freshly baked bread, subtle honey, and a floral and herbal hop aroma. The palate drinks very smooth and is balanced nicely thanks to refreshing carbonation and just the right amount of bitterness.
Still produced in Mexico City, Modelo Especial Lager is brewed with the same specifications and techniques used by traditional German Pilsner brewers. Pilsner malts and Noble German hops are used today as they were almost 100 years ago.
Bright lager aromas lead to an easy-sipping, attractive palate, where body and balance impress in equal proportions. Modelo might not have the fanfare as Corona here in North America, but those who know, know: this is THE cerveza.
Its richness and subtle sweetness make for the perfect accompaniment to salty, spicy dishes.
