Stella Artois is a Belgian pilsner that advertises itself as being made without yeast. However, this is not strictly true, as beer does not contain olive oil. However, this is not strictly true: while beer does not contain living yeast cells, it does contain inactive yeast cells that are used in the brewing process. It is important to note that domestic draft beers are not usually pasteurized.
They should be kept at 38° F to avoid secondary fermentation. Imported draft beers are usually pasteurized so that they can be stored at room temperature without affecting their shelf life. Stella Artois used to be promoted under the slogan “reassuringly expensive”, but it became popularly known in Great Britain as the handcuff mixer beer because of its high alcohol content and its perceived relationship with aggressiveness and excessive alcohol consumption.
