From the outset the focus was on brewing high quality premium craft beers in accordance with the most popular international brewing styles. Only the finest ingredients are used. The malt, for instance, is imported from Belgium, whilst the yeast used is specifically produced by the Department of Microbiology at the University of the Free State.
Each of the beer brands has a strong connection to the region.
The roots of Stellar Brewery can be traced back to the friendship between two schoolboys, which started in 1975 at Grey College in Bloemfontein. And the crafted beer and gin produced by Stellar Brewery in Bloemfontein today, flows with the companionship and loyalty of this friendship that withstood the test of time.
Stellar is also deeply rooted in the rich, fertile soil of the Free State province, called by many the heartland of South Africa. Hence names like Oliewen Weiss, Mangaung Gold and Free State Lager, in which the heartbeat of the region resounds.
