One of the best-selling beers in the world, the Stella Artois Belgian Lager Beer is smooth and delicious. It has an ABV of 5%, and is refreshing and crisp. On the palate, it’s crisp and well-balanced, with a malt sweetness, and a hop bitterness.
The crisp bitterness of this Lager Beer from Stella Artois cuts through creamy dishes and pastas beautifully, as well as creamy cheeses like Havarti and Morbier. Its refreshing qualities also pair perfectly with the strong flavors of Thai and Indian cuisine.
Stella Artois has over 600 years of brewing heritage. Founded in Leuven, Belgium at the De Hoorn Brewery in 1366. The lager was created as a gift from the brewery to the people of Leuven for the holidays, hence the name, “Stella,” meaning “star” in Latin. The “Artois” comes from Sebastian Artois, a De Hoorn Brew Master, beloved in both the brewery and in the Leuven communities. The Stella Artois is not only a gift, but a way to honor the legacy of a beloved man.
Store beer bottles upright to prevent yeast rings from appearing. They must be kept in a cool, dark place at approximately 13°C. Don’t allow beer to be caught in bright light for long periods of time to prevent it from attaining a “skunky” taste.
