Stella Artois in collaboration with Mr. Gwej of Mr. Gwej’s Kitchen brought together media personalities, guests and friends of the brand to celebrate the fusion of tradition and modernity through Christmas inspired gastronomical experience with an at-home feel at a private residence in Parktown North. 



“Each bottle of Stella Artois honours centuries of Belgian brewing heritage, with a design that hints at our origins and the quality taste that still captures the imagination of beer connoisseurs of today. The star design on the bottle harks back to the first Christmas brew crafted as a special gift for the people of Leuven by the original Master Brewer Sebastian Artois,” said Stella Artois Marketing Manager, Mr. Thomas Lawrence.



Stella Artois: The Original Christmas Beer

The rich history paired with the rich flavor on and in every bottle of Stella Artois inspired Mr. Gwej of Mr. Gwej’s Kitchen to assemble a menu of his famous traditional dishes with modern touches. The nibbly bits on the menu complimented the intricate flavour and enticing seduction in each chalice of Stella Artois. The malty middle and crisp finish as well as the pleasantly bitter flavour of Stella Artois made it the perfect accompaniment for the experimental and unfussy approach to food that Mr. Gwej of Mr. Gwej’s Kitchen champions.
