What began as a passion for surfing and a beer with the boys quickly turned into a lifestyle they could not escape!
A surfer walks into a bar…
…and leaves disgusted. “Why”, he says to anyone listening, ‘can I not get a decent beer in Bali?” Spurred by his disappointment, he heads home and gets busy finding the solution to this problem.
Adding a little personal ingenuity with his passion for beer, he began brewing at home, found what worked, invited his long-suffering friends and finally, came up with just what he liked. Inspired by local beers from far away lands, he was ready to make the leap and start whipping up some serious brews.
It began with an itch, a lightbulb moment, a thirst for a local brew and a bar to call home.
This is how Black Sands Brewery was born. What happens next in this tale of brews, mates and surfing? The machinery finally arrives, sparkling, new and BIG. A building goes up with a view over the rice fields, the kitchen comes to life, a beer garden grows and finally, this dream is starting to come true.
