NUTRITIONAL BEER FACTS
Modelo is made from malted barley which naturally contains gluten. The fermentation process significatively lowers its content, however, there are traces of gluten in all our beers. We recommend that you consult your physician regarding consumption.
Yes, Modelo products are vegan friendly. We do not use any products derived from animals.
Modelo products are not Kosher certified.
Modelo products are pasteurized. The pasteurization process, which assures the microbiological stability and secures the shelf life of beer, is accomplished by heating it at approximately 60°C for a predetermined period of time.
BEER PRESERVATION AND STORAGE
While there are many factors that contribute to beer shelf life, we have found that in order to enjoy the consistently fresh taste of Modelo, it is best to drink within the timeframe of the code date printed on the product packaging.
We strive for the highest standards of quality and freshness for all our products and regularly conduct comprehensive testing to ensure the best quality liquids for our consumers. Our best by / code date is printed on the neck of the bottle or bottom of the can. Please reference our code date chart for more information.
Storage conditions also play a factor in the shelf life and quality of beer. Prior to opening, Modelo should be kept in a cool, dry, dark area away from bright light while avoiding extreme temperature changes. Kegs should be stored in temperatures of 34-39 degrees Fahrenheit with serving temperatures of 36-41 degrees Fahrenheit. The optimal storage temperature for cans and bottles is 53-59 degrees Fahrenheit.
Modelo products have a carbonation level of 2.7 CO2 volume. The recommended CO2 gauge pressure for Modelo products should range between 12.5-16 PSI at 38 degrees Fahrenheit at sea level. For every 2000 feet in elevation, the PSI needs to be raised by 1.
WHERE TO BUY
Modelo products can be located nationwide using our Product Locator. You can put in your zip code for a curated list of retailers in your area to purchase Modelo products for online & in-store purchase nationwide. However, we recommend calling first to make sure the retailer is fully stocked prior to your arrival.
