Bali Hai – Indonesia’s Best Beer

Sara and I are currently in Bali, which is home to our new favourite Southeast Asian beer thus far: Bali Hai. We stumbled upon it at a knock off 7-11 (Mini Mart) in Ubud, and were thrilled to finally find a beer that wasn't Heineken or Bintang (Indonesia's favourite beer). I bought a small can of it for the equivalent of about $2.40 CAD and proceeded onward to the Alcoholic Monkey Forest.

While nothing special, the beer far surpasses Bintang in terms of drinkability. It's a typical adjunct lager with a slight cereal aroma and taste. It's a little sweet overall, but fine. Meh, it's another lager.

As we entered the forest, an alpha climbed onto my back swinging from arm to arm in a desperate attempt to score some swigs. These are bloody alcoholic monkeys man, and I guess they're just sick of Bintang. I am too.

Before the ambush, I posed like a douche and ignored the sign...

Have you tried Bintang or Bali Hai? What did you think? What's your favourite international beer that you can't get back home?
