First established as a microbrewery in 2011, Stark Beer is the first wheat beer produced in Indonesia entirely from natural product without preservatives - an additive cited as the cause of "hangovers" in other beers. Produced with pure spring water that undergoes three rigorous filtrations that retains the natural minerals while removing any bacteria and toxic elements.

In the few intervening years, Stark Beer has grown to a medium-sized brewery with a growing reputation for the high quality of its wheat, dark wheat and low-carbohydrate beers,
Speaking to Bali Post, general manager of Stark Beer, Raimund Norbert Mester, said that most ingredients for making his brews are still imported from abroad and mixed with the highest-quality local spring water to produce a distinctive and aromatic beer for the Indonesian market.
The low-carbohydrate beer produced by Stark Beer uses a high-technology method that manages to reduce sugars while still retaining a 5% alcohol content in the final product. Mester boasts the finished product - a white beer using special grains and yeast imported from Belgium - is rich in vitamins and half as fattening as competing beers.
Sharing a production secret, Mester said the wheat beer produced by Stark Beer uses local coriander that give the beer a taste with a hint of a Balinese orange. Meanwhile the dark wheat beer - a German-style brew - has a color resembling a ruby bestowed through the marriage of wheat, malt and caramel.
