Bintang: probably More Famous than Uluwatu and Padang Padang combined***
For those of you unfamiliar with the brew, Bintang is the number one selling beer in Indonesia and a staple to the diet of traveling backpackers and surfers alike. Locals, like to one pictured above, also indulge in this bubbly heineken-esque pilsner that follows the Dutch brewing traditions left behind by the former colonizer. Bir Bintang, meaning “star beer” in the local Bahasa language, is as much of an icon as any of the countless world class surf breaks that bless this fabled archipelago.
So to commemorate this beloved beverage (and country), SWELL is now introducing the Bintang Bali Beer Cap Tee now available on our website. A shirt this awesome is hard to find anywhere besides Indo, so be the first to sport the classic bottle cap logo on this soft 100% cotton tee. Logo Features the classic Bali cap print that invokes thoughts of reeling left handers and all-night ragers. Shirts come in White in sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large and Double-XL, to suit all you hung over, sleep-deprived travelers.
Just make sure not to stain it when you are eating your nasi goreng and listening to that sweet sweet gamelan.
