Stella Artois

stella-artois-logo1If you’re not a beer-junkie but you just like good beer, then you probably know Stella Artois. What you may not know, however, is that the company traces its roots to a brewery in Leuven, Belgium that started making beer in 1339!

In 1708, Sebastian Artois became the master brewer at the Leuven brewery, and 9 years later named the company after himself.

The actual Stella Artois beer didn’t come around until 1926, and started out as a seasonal Christmas time brew that soon became available year-round.

One cool note: the current package, bottle, and label has only been around since 1988!

    • >Lords, personally, not one of my favs. I put this in the lager category, for women and gays.

      • hahahaha… Well I for sure don’t fit in one of those categories. Well, I still think it’s tasty. :)

      • :-) I wasn’t insinuating… I often tease Brazilians in the local bar about their beer too.
