Is a pilsener beer of Grupo Modelo®, first brought to market in 1966.
The origins of the brand lay way back in time. In 1717 Sebastien Artois, master brewer since 1708, purchased brewery Den Horen existing since 1366. The company, located in Leuven (Belgium), was then given the name Artois. Stella was born as a christmas beer in 1926. Hence the name Stella = star.
Artois, after several acquisitions, merged with Piedboeuf in 1987 to form Interbrew.
