Nigerian Breweries, makers of Star Lager Beer, is Nigeria’s pioneer and largest brewery. Incorporated in 1946, Nigerian Breweries introduced Star lager beer into the Nigerian market on June 2, 1949 as the first indigenously brewed beer in a market that was dominated exclusively by imported brands.
Star Lager is largely responsible for the growth of the Nigerian indigenous beer industry, as its success story has influenced the introduction of other successful brands.
As a result of the brand’s successful football initiatives in the country, it has become a reference point for corporate sponsorship and development of local and international football in Nigeria.
