What beer is available in Bali?
The normal supermarket price for a small bottle of Bintang is Rp. 15,000 but prices in bars and clubs can be around Rp. 60,000
Anker is a rival to Bintang. Produced in Jakarta, this beer has a stronger taste. Anker price is the same as Bintang, so go back to your choice.
Bali Hai is a cheap local beer only sold in Bali. however now it is available throughout Indonesia. Most people who are looking for beer at an affordable price, Bali Hai is actually a brand from Jakarta not Bali, unlike the name. For the taste is not as hard as other local beers, but still fresh when enjoying the hot sun.
Arak is a distilled drink from Southeast Asia, Sri Lanka and India. It can be made from various ingredients such as rice, coconut fruit and flowers, but in Bali mostly sugar cane is used. Also referred to as “rum of Indonesia”, we must be careful when buying and consuming arak if it is not properly processed it can contain methanol, and if consumed it can be fatal.
Bali Moon is a drink with flavors like coffee, pineapple, banana and coconut. used also in cocktail mixes. Bali Moon can be found all over the island and ranges in price from Rp. 30,000 ($ 3) to Rp. 100,000 ($ 10).
Tuak is the same type as rice wine and sake. It is very easy to make and the price is cheap. Tuak is often used in Balinese ceremonies and in some local cocktails. It’s not for everyone, you either run it or hate it.
Tourists often encounter Balinese brem which are sold at gift shops. This drink is made from fermented rice and can also be consumed as a brem cake. The taste isn’t all that special, but makes a great gift in a lovely bottle.
Most people are more familiar with world-class surfing than wine, but that doesn’t mean wine is second to none. Introduced by Australians who started growing grapes in Bali, the most famous local wine is Hatten and can replace when you don’t want to spend a lot of money on Australian wine.
