There is only one way of getting nether bricks naturally, and that is through bartering with the new denizens of the Nether, Piglins. Piglins have a chance to drop 2-8 Nether Bricks when the players give them an Gold Ingot. This will make the Piglin stare at the Gold for a while before dropping a random item.

However, even though this is a completely renewable source, it is not consistent and therefore players are better off making them from scratch.
