Product description

Modelo Negra Mexican Beer, the original Modelo beer, is a Munich Dunkel-style dark lager beer with rich flavor and a remarkably smooth taste. Made with galena and super galena hops, plus slow-roasted caramel malts and non-malted cereals, this Mexican lager style beer is brewed longer to enhance its flavors. The result is a medium-bodied imported beer with 172 calories* per serving, minimal hops bitterness, and a surprisingly light finish that exceeds expectations. Savor this easy-drinking beer on its own in a favorite lager beer glass, or pair this balanced, flavorful, dark malt beer with Mexican dishes, grilled meats, roasted vegetables, shellfish, or Asian food. There's dark beer, then there's Negra, brewed for those with a fighting spirit. *Per 12 fl. oz. serving of average analysis: Calories 172, Carbs 15.7 grams, Protein 1.5 grams, Fat 0 grams.

The primary difference between these supremely popular lagers is in their color and brewing method. Modelo is a pale lager, while the Modelo Negra is a dark, delicious Munich Dunkel Lager (“dunkel” is German for “dark”). The flavors correspond as you might expect, with the Modelo having a light, crisp flavor that pairs well with cookout food and spiciness. Negra, on the other hand, is dark with more bitter notes. It’s also worth noting that Modelo has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 4.4%, while Modelo Negra sports 5.4% ABV.
Modelo Negra is a Munich Dunkel Lager, which essentially means it’s an accessible yet irresistibly bitter dark lager that remains balanced and pleasant for the masses. Driven by malty and nutty flavors, Modelo Negra opens the door to darker beers for those who perhaps are put off by the aggressiveness of other swarthy beers. Modelo Negra is a full ABV percentage point stronger than its non-Negra cousin Modelo, giving it a slight kick that also contributes to its flavor.
Yes, by a single percentage point — classic Modelo has an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 4.4%, and Modelo Negra has an ABV of 5.4%. There are plenty of differences between these two brews aside from that, though. Modelo Negra is a Munich Dunkel Lager (in other words, a dark lager) with notes of caramel, malt, nuts, and a tastefully balanced hoppy bitterness. Modelo is a pale lager that’s light, crisp, and refreshing. If you’re looking for an accessible gateway into darker beers, the Negra is a great choice.
Modelo Negra is the perfect — and we mean PERFECT — gift if you’re trying to convince someone of the beauty of darker beers who is usually put off by the aggressive flavor profiles of other dark brews. Modelo Negra brings all of the lovable traits of dark beers to the floor, with maltiness, nuttiness, caramel, and a balanced flavor profile that avoids the overt bitterness of other darks. Slam a pack of Modelo Negra in their hands and see if you don’t have a new convert.
