Product Description

In 1925, our Brewmasters set out to create a unique lager with rich flavor and smooth taste. The result was Modelo Negra, a Munich Dunkel-style Lager made with slow-roasted dark malts, brewed longer to enhance the flavors. As a dark beer with a surprisingly light finish, Modelo Negra will defy your expectations of a Mexican beer. Modelo Negra's rich, smooth taste brings out the flavors of Mexican-inspired dishes as well as many other cuisines. This balanced, easy-drinking beer contains 173 calories, 0 grams of fat, and 5.4% alcohol by volume per 12 ounce serving. Best served chilled.

Drizly Expert Notes

Negra Modelo is a Munich Dunkel-style lager coming in at 5.4% ABV. Although dunkel is the German word for “dark," this classic Mexican brew remains crisp with its snappy hop bitterness complemented by smooth and slightly sweet malt flavors. Negra Modelo's flavor profile and gorgeous amber hue are derived from the caramel and roasted malts used in its brewing process. When looking for more flavor, look no further than Negra Modelo with rounded malt flavors that pack more of a punch than your light, golden pale lagers.

Although delectable by itself, Negra Modelo is the number one choice when pairing beer with Mexican cuisine. Its toasty and caramelly malt flavors are so versatile, pair Negra Modelo with braised beef (barbacoa) tacos with cilantro and onions, fried fish tacos with spicy mayo and cabbage slaw, crispy tortillas with spicy charred tomato salsa and sour cream, and more. And not to be only limited to Mexican food, Negra Modelo is simply one of the most food friendly beers and will pair wonderfully with almost any meal.

And finally, instead of a pale lager, Negra Modelo's bold, yet balanced malt flavors makes it the perfect beer for Micheladas or mezcal and tequila themed beer cocktails. For example, add 1 bottle of Negra Modelo, 1 ounce of your favorite smokey mezcal, and ¾ oz. fresly squeezed lime juice into a large glass with a salted rim and ice, and enjoy a refreshing beer cocktail on a hot summer day.
