    Extremely expensive for a case of beer. Over $50 for something that is $26 at the local store. Gave the app a 2 star review because the driver was great. Otherwise this app is crazy expensive.

    Excellent service every time on time no negative remarks on my end but a mere suggestion.. please close the gate that you opened behind you. Even if you don’t see a dog doesn’t mean there’s not one there..

    Modelo is a particularly good beer. It's rich in flavor like a good lager. It has and keeps a good head on it. Nothing like a good cold Modelo.

FAQs

Super refreshing, easy-to-drink, with a daytime-friendly ABV, Modelo Especial is the type of beer you want in your poolside cooler (with a few slices of lime on the side). Modelo Especial is a light, bubbly Pilsner-style beer made in Mexico. Pilsners are a type of lager, and lagers are distinct in the German bottom-fermenting yeast strains employed in the brewing process. It’s a curious cultural hybrid. In the 19th century, many German immigrants who made their way to the United States continued their journeys south, bringing their Bavarian-inspired beer-making prowess across the Mexican border (you can thank them for Corona beers as well).
Modelo Especial beers are qualified as lager-style brews, which are typically less alcoholic than those made in the ale style. Following that pattern, a 12-ounce bottle of Modelo Especial contains just 4.4% ABV. The lager yeasts are more delicate than the strains used in traditional ales and perform much better in a gentler, less alcohol environment. This overall lighter alcohol content creates a crisp, clean finish and makes these brews an excellent choice for those sweltering Southwest summer temperatures.
Alcohol content is the leading source of calories and carbohydrates in a beer’s nutritional make-up, and Mexican lagers, like Modelo Especial, are known for their lower ABVs. As such, you can expect a 12-ounce bottle of Modelo Especial (at 4.4% ABV) to contain about 140 calories and roughly 14 grams of carbohydrates (the same portion of a 5.5% ABV pale ale will likely cost you upwards of 180 to 200 calories). Nonetheless, even at just 140 calories, a bottle of Modelo Especial packs a full flavor (look for notes of honey, malt, and herbs) and a crisp finish.
Imagine — your friend is sprawled on a beach chair reading a steamy summer romance. They are slightly sticky from lying in the sun too long, but too hooked on the chapter to put the book down and take a dip in the pool. You hand them a frost-cold Modelo Especial with a lime wedge cushioned along the rim of the bottle. At this moment, it’s hard to imagine a better gift than a Modelo Especial. It’s affordable, tasty, refreshing, and most of all, each bottle is topped in gold foil, so it’s wrapped like a present.

The fight for the Model Beer takes time and turbulence
