    Stella Artois Brewery, Leuven - November 2011

    Visited with fishbrain, Illogical, and oldskool.

    Apologies to all those who wanted another glimpse of the brewing hall and that fabulous staircase - I know I did, but workers were in that part of the building as we had a nosey, so given OT's troubles here a few years back, we thought we'd better leave them be and settle for just seeing the other areas of the complex... after all, we had to be back at Calais in a matter of hours and the unwanted attentions of the local Politie might have hampered our return.


    The origins of the Stella Artois brewing company can be found to dated tax papers from 1366, and began in the town of Louvain (Leuven), Belgium. The brewery was called "Den Hoorn" (Dutch for "The Horn") which is still illustrated on the Stella label. In 1708, Sebastien Artois won the coveted title of Master Brewer of Den Hoorn, and the name Artois was forever associated with the town of Louvain and the brewery. After producing a exceptionally clear beer during a traditional annual Christmas brew in 1926, the batch was named "Stellafrom," Latin for "star," and was so popular that it was produced year-round. Thus the full name Stella Artois was born.

    The past and future history of this particular brewery is unclear, but it seems to be that they needed to expand by the presence of the brand spanking new factory just a couple of hundred metres away.
