History of stella artois beer

Stella Artois was established in 1366 in the town of Leuven, Belgium, a medieval city 16 miles east of Brussels. Originally named Den Hoorn Brewery, it brewed his first beer in 1366. with the presence of students after the establishment of the University of Leuven in 1425 and because of the poor quality of the available drinking water Brouwerij Den Hoorn if flourishing.

In June 1708 brewer Sebastian Artois get his master diploma from the Den Hoorn brewery. Nine years later he purchased the Den Hoorn Brewery. Later, he changed its name to Stella Artois. The name “Stella” – meaning “star” in Latin – pays homage to the occasion, and a star has been proudly displayed on Stella Artois bottles ever since.

Sebastian Artois became an innovator in his own right, successfully introducing many new beer styles. His efforts ultimately led to the Artois brewmasters creating a golden lager inspired by the German and Czech Pils.

But it wasn't until 1926 that a limited-edition Christmas beer was produced that catapulted the brewery on to the world stage. Named after the Christmas star Stella Artois is now the only beer they brew.
