First established a Nederlandsh-Indische Bierbrouwerijen in Medan in 1929, the Company was operating a brewery in Surabaya before it built a second brewery in Tangerang in 1972.
Over time, the Company grew in strength to become a reputable and responsible Indonesian Beverage Company with portfolio of leading beer and soft drinks brands. In line with its growth and development, the Company was renamed PT Multi Bintang Indonesia Tbk. when it went public in 1981.
