S is for Stella by the Sea
Beer has always been a strong important beverage in the Egyptian culture. It was very essential that it was even known to be part of the daily diet of the Egyptian Pharaohs 5,000 years ago.
However, when one would think of authentic Egyptian beer, the first beer that would come to mind is none other than Stella.
Brewed in Egypt since 1897, Stella is the most infamous of Egyptian beer, and just as its quality and taste have varied over the years, so have the labels. Here are three different examples all purchased at the same seaside bar on the same night! My favorite is the label on the right. What’s yours?
