While the Artois Brewery may have served gentlemen and rogues since 1366, it wasn't until 1926 that the pride of Belgium was born. Christmas had enrobed the town of Leuven. As the spirit of goodwill permeated the crisp air, the brewers of Artois took it upon themselves to devise a special Christmas brew. This new beer emerged clear, clear as a star, you could say. It was thusly christened "Stella," Latin for "star." The people rejoiced in this new brew and have henceforward set their tables with it year round.
The name Stella Artois revels in a birth brought about by natural elements. The natural ingredients that comprise its makeup include water, malt, hops and the magic element, a unique Stella Artois yeast. The water itself is drawn from underground wells located deep beneath the brewery. The finished product is a culmination of ingredient, tradition and style.
The Artois Brewery has too seen many a rebirth. In 1918, it suffered from the artillery of WWI and was rebuilt. Today, the senior brewery is protected as a national patrimony. A second was built in 1948 and today boasts an annual production of 150,000hL. 1993 marked the birth of fully automated brewery in Leuven. Stella Artois has found many homes but countless more friends.
