Our brewmasters have employed the same distinctive techniques since they began brewing Negra Modelo back in 1925. This Munich Dunkel (dark) style is characterized by its liberal use of roasted or toasted malts. The slow roasting of the malts alone makes the brewing process last twice as long as other beers, producing its signature reddish color and hint of sweetness.
Negra Modelo is Mexico's top-selling dark beer and the #2 imported dark beer in the U.S. Average growth rate for the last 10 years (2003-2013) is 5.2%.
Negra Modelo redefines the way consumers think of a dark beer because in taste and color it is a very drinkable beer. Negra Modelo appeals to import beer drinkers who are looking for something new and different. Consumers who drink craft beers also love Negra Modelo as it offers more flavor, more complexity and a little "mystery."
Negra Modelo is made with filtered water, malted barley, hops, rice and exceptional yeast varieties, which give way to the balanced flavor and remarkably smooth taste you can only find in a Negra Modelo. Hints of caramel sweetness and dark chocolate balance out this smooth, medium bodied beer.
