Do Mexicans drink Modelo?

Answered by Randy McIntyre

As a Mexican-American who grew up in a predominantly Mexican community, I can confidently say that Mexicans do indeed drink Modelo. In fact, Modelo is one of the most popular beers in Mexico and holds a special place in the hearts of many Mexicans.

One of the reasons why Modelo is so beloved in Mexico is because it is a local brand. Mexicans take great pride in their national products, and supporting Mexican businesses is a way of showing that pride. Modelo has been brewed in Mexico since 1925, and its iconic logo, featuring an eagle perched on a cactus with a snake in its beak, has become synonymous with Mexican culture.

Modelo comes in various types, but Negra Modelo is particularly popular among Mexicans. This beer is a Vienna-style lager, known for its rich, malty flavor. It has a beautiful dark amber color that is quite enticing. The 5.3% alcohol content gives it a bit of a kick, making it a great choice for those looking for a stronger beer.

In Mexico, it is not uncommon to find Negra Modelo being served at family gatherings, parties, and of course, at Mexican restaurants. Many Mexican restaurants in the United States also serve Negra Modelo, which has helped to popularize it among Americans as well. The smooth, slightly sweet taste of Negra Modelo pairs wonderfully with traditional Mexican dishes like tacos, enchiladas, and mole.

Personally, I have many fond memories of enjoying Negra Modelo with family and friends during celebrations and gatherings. It has become a go-to beer for special occasions and adds a touch of authenticity to the experience.

While Modelo is certainly not the only beer Mexicans drink, it holds a special place in Mexican culture. Whether it’s enjoying a cold bottle at a fiesta or savoring it alongside some delicious Mexican cuisine, Negra Modelo is a beer that brings people together and represents the rich traditions of Mexico.
