Bintang is an Indonesian beer made by PT Multi Bintang Indonesia Tbk. It is made out of rice and water and has a malty flavor. The name of the beer is derived from Bintang, the name of the ethnic group that lives in Bintang, and the word ” Bungtang” means “cooked rice”. Tampak Lipang was responsible for brewing it. Bintang is one of the most popular beers in Indonesia, especially in Central Java.
Bintang was brought to the world’s attention when the producer Netherlands Oud Bruin released it as an import in the United States. After only a few years, American beer drinkers discovered the rich taste of bintang. During the Dutch colonial rule in Indonesia, beer was an important part of the trade. Thus, many of the ingredients used in making bintang were also used in the local breweries of Java, Sumatra, and Borneo.
Today, you can find many restaurants in major cities all over the world that serve bintang lager. Although it was originally a lager, it is now often served with other types of beers, such as wheat beer, or with the addition of other fruits, such as lemons. Because of the wide variety of options available to consumers, bintang is becoming a popular brew to serve during special occasions, such as weddings, birthdays, or to celebrate the passing of a long loved friend. In fact, some people in Indonesia are producing this beer and selling it under their own label.
If you visit Indonesia, you will be able to find bintang beer on tap in almost every restaurant that you enter. Unfortunately, due to the recent financial crisis in Indonesia, many Indonesian restaurants have had to reduce or completely eliminate their beer selection. This is unfortunate because not only is beer an important part of the Indonesian culture, but also a great way to relax after a long day of work. For this reason, many of the smaller restaurants in Indonesia that still offer bintang as an option, also offer it along with other fine beers and wines. A wonderful idea for a special dinner date with your significant other, or an afternoon of bonding with your friends, serving up a few cans of this India Pale Ale will surely please.
One option that you may want to consider if you cannot get your hands on a local bintang is to look on the foreign market. You can find both locally produced bintang, as well as those that are imported from other countries. Typically, you will be able to find a bintang zero that has been created in India, or that has been created in Indonesia, but either way you should know that the quality is outstanding. If you are trying to save money, you may opt to buy a bottle of indonesian market bintang for considerably less than you would pay at a restaurant, which makes it even more enjoyable to drink.
Many people believe that the best way to enjoy a good bintang is to brew one yourself. This is certainly true, however you can save quite a bit of money by purchasing a bintang radler instead, as these are generally cheaper to purchase and they taste just as good as the stuff that is purchased in the supermarket. In addition, the bintang radler is generally made from all-grain rice, which makes it very easy to keep clean. If you plan to make the bintang from scratch, you should know that there are many recipes available on the internet that will allow you to customize the flavor as much or as little as you would like. The radler is also available as a packaged beverage, so it is always convenient to take along a bottle when you are out on the town.
