Mexican beer brands Negra Modelo and Pacifico are destined for a new Australian distributor.

Foster's lost the low volume brands along with Corona when owner Grupo Modelo cut ties with the SABMiller-owned company early last month.

They were not taken up by Corona's new Australian distributor, Lion.

Negra Modelo is Mexico's top-selling dark beer, while Pacifico is a pilsner-style brew.

Like Danish brand Carlsberg, the Mexican brands have been heavily linked with the Coopers-owned distribution business, Premium Beverages, but neither party would comment at this stage.
