AB InBev’s Stella Artois has marked its first-ever summer seasonal beer with a limited-edition golden lager made with citrus essences.
Inspired by the longest and sunniest day of the year, Stella Artois Solstice Lager is the brand’s latest seasonal brew to launch and joins limited-edition products such as its Midnight Lager for Halloween.
With a 4.5% ABV and at 105 calories per bottle, the lager reportedly features malty sweetness and zesty citrus notes.
Described as full-flavored and refreshing, the beverage is triple filtered for a smooth, crisp finish.
“We are very excited for people to try what’s soon to be their new favourite beer of summer,” said Lara Krug, VP of marketing at Stella Artois.
She added: “Stella Artois Solstice Lager delivers a little taste of sunshine in a bottle, turning any summertime moment into a special celebration, at a time where summer might not look like the usual.”
From 8 June, Stella Artois Solstice Lager will be rolling out for a limited time across US retailers in 6-pack and 12-pack bottles.

A new wave of brands is emerging that promotes indulgence and rejects the notion of sacrifice. Low-maintenance “hangover” beauty products are designed to address the effects of late nights and partying without judgment or hassle, and even include cosmetics that are formulated in a way that means you can fall asleep in your makeup without feeling guilty.
The pilot will allow the company to scale circular packaging in about 18 markets over the next three years, an approach that jumps on the success of similar efforts in the company’s Indonesia ecoSPIRITS program, which launched in 2022 and is active in 38 bars.
Unilever’s focus on purpose across its brands has been a source of criticism from some of its investors. Its new CEO Hein Schumacher says the company now recognises there are some brands where the concept is simply not relevant.
