Stella Artois, Leuven, Belgium

When the DeHoorn brewery, open since 1366, first brewed its Stella Artois beer, it was intended to be a special holiday run — the name is a combination of the Latin word for star (stella) and the name of the brewery's founder, Sebastien Artois. But it was such a hit that they made it a permanent offering. Visitors to the Stella Artois brewery in Leuven can take an hour-long tour, which guides them through the brewing hall and filing lines, and quench their thirst post-tour with a Stella in the brewery's Den Thuis bar. Admission: €6 ($8).
