ABF # 2 back again at 18th – 19th December 2019. This is an annual event organized by Arak Dewi Sri and the Indonesian Bartender Association.
The aims of this event is to introduce arak as one of the local wisdoms that we must maintain its continuity as a noble cultural heritage. “The culture of drinking arak must be returned to its rules, that should be for the younger generation to enjoy arak responsibly, education is what we must prioritize before we discussing legalization” said Putu Widhiantara, founder of The Bartimes Magazine, on the sidelines of the seminar and discussion with the theme “The arak between legalization and tradition”
