Get Drunk! Popular Beers In Bali

Beer is the world’s most widely consumed and probably the oldest alcoholic beverage; it is the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea. The production of beer is called brewing, which involves the fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains—most commonly malted barley, although wheat, maize (corn), and rice are widely used. Most beer is flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included. The fermentation process causes a natural carbonation effect, although this is often removed during processing, and replaced with forced carbonation.

And there is list of popular beers in Bali

Bintang is Bali’s best-selling beer (and also probably the best-selling T-shirt). The taste is similar to an American pale lager, like Heineken, and has an alcoholic strength of around 4.7%. It’s also possible to buy Bintang Zero, a low-alcohol version with less than 1% alcohol. The standard price for a small bottle of Bintang from a supermarket is about Rp. 15,000 but can cost as much as Rp.60,000 from fancier bars and clubs.3.jpg

Anker is Bintang’s rival. Made in a Jakarta brewery, this beer has a  stronger taste. Anker costs about the same as Bintang, so it really just comes down to your personal preference.4

Bali Hai
Bali Hai is a cheap local beer that was originally only sold in Bali, however it’s now available all over Indonesia. Popular with people looking for an affordable beer, Bali Hai is actually brewed in Jakarta and not Bali, as the name suggests. The taste is a little weak compared with other local brews, but still does the trick on a hot day.

Storm Beer
Produced by a microbrewery in Bali, Storm Beer is the only truly local beer. The beer is thought to have been created by an Englishman at the turn of the last century, and there is a range available to suit everyone.5
