Complete Your Beer Bucket List: 6 Bali Beers and 3 Breweries to Try!

Bali is famous for its beautiful and exotic beaches. One exciting and earthy way to enjoy Bali’s beaches is by drinking a cold glass of springlike beer!

In Bali, beer is indeed well known and liked by many tourists and also Balinese. Finding places that sell beer in beach areas might be easy, but you need to know which beer is best served in Bali, and which breweries are serving the best booze to enjoy with friends. Local beers are the most popular amongst other brands, such as Bintang, Bali Hai, and find out more in the article below!

Bali Local Beers

1. Bintang Beer

This beer is arguably one of the best selling beers in Bali. With an alcohol content of 4.7%, you can easily find these beers, from small stalls to five-star hotels. Many say this beer has the same taste as Heineken. The price itself is around IDR 20,000 if purchased at a supermarket. Meanwhile, if you buy it at a bar or club the price can reach about IDR 60,000.

The Bintang beer is also styled as a pale lager, gold in colour with an ideal serving temperature of 7 °C. The 4.7% ABV Pilsner has malt and hop flavour. Because it is a localized version of Heineken, its taste is similar and comparable to Heineken, and the Bintang bottle is reminiscent of a Heineken bottle; the red star on the bottle is the same as Heineken. Bintang makes a malt-based beverage called Bintang Zero 0.0%, a low alcohol Radler called Bintang Radler (in both lemon and grapefruit flavours) 2.0%, a soft drink product called Green Sands.

2. Anker Beer

5. Stark Beer

6. Es Bir (Iced ‘Beer’)

This typical Balinese ‘beer’ is made from coconut combined with lime juice. This drink has a distinctive taste and is very delicious when enjoyed during the day. This drink is very popular in Bali, especially northern Bali (Singaraja, Buleleng, and surrounding areas).

This beer ice is similar to typical es kelapa muda on beaches in Indonesia. The difference is that the mixture of es kelapa muda uses granulated sugar, syrup, or even brown sugar, then the ice beer mixture must use sugar and also add lime juice.

If you are curious about what it tastes like, you can make it by yourself and it is pretty easy actually.

Ingredients:

  • 1 young coconut (thick flesh)
  • thinly sliced lime
  • sugar
  • ice cubes

How to make:

  • First, take the coconut water.
  • Split the coconut, shaved/take the meat thinly
  • Lime sliced

Serving method:

  • Prepare a glass, take sugar according to taste
  • Add young coconut water and shavings of young coconut meat
  • Add ice cubes to taste
  • Give some lime juice, and add the lime juice.

Turns out making it so easy, right? You may have enjoyed this drink often, it’s just that sometimes the name of the drink is different.
