For over 90 years, Modelo Especial has tapped into its past to brew a better beer. During that time, Jorge Burgos fought his way up the ranks from washing kegs in Modelo’s brewery to mastering the craft. Greatness takes patience and hard work. The crisp, refreshing taste of our Pilsner-style lager continues to improve overtime – for a taste that’s pure gold. Modelo Especial. Brewed with a Fighting Spirit.
