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 ground up, gaining its status from below via bodegas, convenience stores and word of mouth, becoming the second largest beer import into the U.S. selling more than 50 million cases annually.
