Christmas Cheer with the Christmas Beer

Christmas Cheer with the Christmas Beer

Stella Artois – the beer originally crafted for Christmas – has this year’s festivities all wrapped up, with a special edition range that will help you to have a stellar Christmas!

The brightly coloured packs leave no need for wrapping paper: Stella Artois has it covered with red boxes, covered in white stars – complete with a ready-to-sign gift card on top. The 12-packs give off a distinctly festive feel that make them a perfect gift for that hard-to-buy-for’ person in your life.

If eggnog isn’t your style, there’s no better beverage for Christmas time than Stella Artois. Taking its name from the Christmas star (“stella” is “star” in Latin), and Master Brewer Sebastian Artois, Stella Artois was originally brewed for the holiday season in its home of Leuven, Belgium. It proved so popular that the brewery began offering it year round, and it is now enjoyed by those who appreciate the finest quality and craftsmanship, through all of the seasons.

In the same spirit of generosity that Sebastian Artois showed the people of Leuven, the Belgian lager is giving a unique gift to all: an eight-track album of Christmas favorites to be offered, for free, throughout the season.

Under The Christmas Star is Stella Artois’ special gift to you, and will be available for a limited time only exclusively from

Look out for the special edition 12-bottle Christmas pack; a brand new, limited-edition 750ml bottle available for sale for the first time this year; and a new 24-bottle case – all designed to help you capture the Christmas spirit!

Keep gift-giving simple this year. The 750ml or 12-pack of Stella Artois is a perfect Christmas gift for friends, bosses, co-workers or family. They’re just the right fit for anyone in their 20’s or older who you need a little Christmas treat for.

And for another Belgian treat, available for a limited time is the Hoegaarden White gift pack featuring four bottles of Hoegaarden and the unique hexagonal shaped Hoegaarden Glass to enjoy drinking them from.

Bringing the taste of the European Summer to New Zealand is the Taste of Belgium gift pack featuring six different Belgian specialty beers: Stella Artois, Stella Artois Legere, Hoegaarden White, Leffe Blonde, Leffe Brun and Leffe Radieuse.

Look out for the special edition Stella Artois Christmas range, available now from supermarkets or liquor stores near you.

You must be over 18 to purchase.

About Stella Artois
Stella Artois is part of a Belgian brewing tradition dating back to 1366. It is the number one Belgian beer in the world and is present in almost 80 countries. Stella Artois has a pleasantly bitter flavour and refreshing finish that distinguishes it from other European lagers. Stella Artois is best served in its signature chalice, which showcases its rich, golden colour while releasing the beer's flavour and aroma.
