At Stella Artois, we are extremely proud of our Belgian roots, dating back to 1366 when our brewing tradition began in the city of Leuven, Belgium– where the original Den Hoorn brewery was founded, creating the quality taste and standard Stella Artois is known for.  Sebastian Artois was admitted to the Leuven Brewer’s Guild as a Brew Master in 1708, and only nine years later purchased the Den Hoorn brewery. In memoriam, you can find his last name on the brewery and every bottle of Stella Artois around the world.  The Artois Brewery was so beloved internationally and locally, a special batch was created as a Christmas gift to the people of Leuven. That special batch was the first to officially include "Stella" in its name. "Stella", meaning star in Latin, pays homage to this original occasion, accompanied by a star on every bottle.  Elegantly packaged today, enjoyed around the world and on tap at the Newport International Polo Series.


Since its foundation in 1772, the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin House has remained true to its motto: “only one quality, the finest”.  Its history carries the mark of an exceptional woman: Barbe Nicole Ponsardin, Madame Veuve Clicquot.  This young widow of 27 years old was left devastated by the untimely death of her husband, but courageously took up the helm of the family business.  She was uncompromising on quality, and set off to conquer the world, transmitting her taste for excellence and innovation to her successors.
