Beer is available in Bali but you may be surprised at how expensive beer and wine can be compared to other places in Southeast Asia. Alcohol prices in Bali tend to be pricey. One of the reasons for this is that Bali is part of Indonesia which is a Muslim-majority country and as a result alcohol is taxed quite high.
There is a wide range of beers available in Bali that are available in both bottles and cans. I have created a list of the popular beers in Bali. I have excluded beers like Heineken and Carlsberg as these are imports from Europe. As these are quite expensive compared to the local Bali beers.
So, let’s take a closer look at the most popular beers in Bali.
