Modelo Especial

Modelo Especial is a pilsner-style lager whose original recipe was first brewed in Mexico in 1925, under the vision to create a ‘model’ beer. Since its introduction to the U.S. in the 1990s, Modelo Especial has grown organically from the ground up, gaining its status from below via bodegas, convenience stores, and word-of-mouth.

Modelo Especial is a very different, pilsner beer, full of attitude and image and is Mexico’s second most popular beer, as well as the third most popular imported brand (from Grupo Modelo) in the US. Modelo Especial was the first brand produced by Grupo Modelo, in 1925, the year in which the company was founded.
