Black Sands Brewery began with a thirst, a revelation, a desire for high quality craft beers and most importantly, a place to share with friends.
Grown with inspiration by beers from far away lands, Mattia began brewing at home and after plenty of time testing beers on his friends and family, he brewed up what worked and the rest was the beginning of beer history in Bali.
What happens next in this tale of beers, friends and surfing? The handy machinery arrives, sparkling, new, beautiful & BIG. Then a building goes up with a panoramic view over the vast rice fields, 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 around a shared food concept. Not only are we brewing the best beer in Bali but our food is definitely worth paying a visit for 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.
