Today, we continue to uphold those same values and strive to produce the best damn beer possible. Whether you're new to Black Sand or have been with us from the beginning, we welcome you to raise a glass and join us on this exciting journey!
Founder Mattia set out to create his own brews after taking inspiration from places around him.- testing each concoction on family and pals until he crafted something special! He then upped the ante by bringing in shiny new machinery, building an amazing brewery overlooking Bali’s gorgeous rice fields… complete with its very own beer garden.
After months of hard work constructing an incredible building with its own beer garden - it's finally time to gather your friends and discover what makes Black Sand so special... the kitchen sparks to life, a beer garden grows and finally, a revelation is realised and there is a place to come together and celebrate good beer with good friends that is Black Sand Brewery.
The vision was to establish Bali’s first craft brewery, based on a shared food concept. Not only are we brewing the best beer in Bali but our food is definitely worth paying a visit too! Top-quality food and top-quality beer. A better combination is yet to exist.
Although beer has been around in Indonesia, Black Sand Brewery encapsulated everything beer lovers dream about. The first real craft brewery in Indonesia, focusing on quality, friends and giving people an experience in the unknown world of craft beer in Bali.
