Some of them, eg acetobacter, but not all of them, eg brettanomyces can grow anaerobically.

I drank a lot of Stella Artois while I was in the UK. But this was basically because it was half way palatable, as distinct from the general run-of-the-mill Pint of Bitter that most pubs sold. There was some very good Real Ale in places, but this could be very hard to find.
