Do Modelo products contain gluten?

There isn't an accepted methodology for testing gluten content in fermented beverages, so we cannot provide an accurate amount of gluten in our beers. There are traces of gluten in all our beers. We recommend that you consult your physician regarding consumption.


Are Modelo products vegan friendly?

Yes, Modelo products are vegan friendly. We do not use any products derived from animals.


What is the shelf life for Modelo products?

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 products, it is best to drink within six months of production.


How can I find the code date?

We strive for the highest standards of quality and freshness for our beers. Our code date is printed on the neck of the bottle or bottom of the can. This code represents the production date. Please reference our code date chart.


What are the ideal storage conditions for Modelo products?

Storage conditions also play a factor in the shelf life and quality of beer. Prior to opening, Modelo products should be kept in a cool, dry, dark area away from bright light. Optimum storage temperature is 53 - 59 degrees Fahrenheit. Avoid extreme temperature changes.

 

Where can I purchase Modelo?

You can locate Modelo in your area using our Product Locator. However, we recommend calling first to make sure the retailer is fully stocked prior to your arrival. Modelo is also available on demand from Drizly and Minibar.


Can I order beer directly from Constellation Brands?

Legal restrictions prevent us from shipping beer directly to consumers, but don’t worry, Modelo products are likely available at a location near you! We sell beer to local distributors who then sell it to retailers such as grocery stores, convenience stores, bars and restaurants. Please contact your local distributor carrying our products to obtain pricing and availability information.

Where can I submit my ideas?

The excitement and enthusiasm our consumers have for our brands is contagious. Thank you for your support! However, any ideas for products, concepts or commercials must come from our paid agencies we work with. Though we know our consumers have great ideas, it would infringe on our contracts with those agencies if we accepted outside ideas.  In addition, we want to avoid any misunderstandings about the origin of ideas, concepts, etc.  Accordingly, we cannot accept your submission.


How can I become a beer promotional model?

Becoming a beer promotional model is actually handled differently in each area of the U.S. We sell beer to local distributors who then sell it to retailers such as grocery stores, convenience stores, bars and restaurants. Our beer distributors use local agencies to hire models for events. Contact your local beer distributor that sells our brand, and ask to talk to the sales team. Those are the companies that hire the agencies.
