That was the t-shirt a (perfectly adorable) Italian archaeologist was wearing on our visit to another site today. Hilarious. Stella is a long-time favorite(?) of archaeologists working in Egypt. Used to be the only beer available (mostly still is, for that matter) and it was truly locally owned and made way back when. It used to come in big brown bottles and the quality control was, shall we say, iffy. It was kind of fun though, sort of like playing Russian roulette: you’d never know if you were going to get one made with rice or wheat or whatever grain(ish) was in season, and the alcohol content also varied so you could drink a bottle and feel a tiny little buzz or be knocked on your @ss.
Years ago it got bought by some German outfit, Heineken I believe, so now it’s much more normal. Since I don’t drink anymore, I can’t comment on its quality, but it’s still a fun little piece of nostalgia.
