DB Breweries


DB challenged the way the world brews beer. We were the first to introduce the continuous fermentation process and to sell this technology internationally. We were named Champion Brewery in 2010. Our reputation is built on pushing boundaries and creating new beer styles and innovative brands and our journey is not over.

We’re nimble enough to change the game and respond to new challenges with fresh ideas. We’re primarily a beer business but we anticipate emerging trends and act quickly. We were first in the market with aluminium kegs and cans. We were the first to brew a local dry beer and a micro-filtered beer. More recently we reinvigorated Kiwi interest in premium cider. We are bold enough to lead not follow.

Our strength is in beer and cider, our culture, our innovation and our brands. Our people are passionate about our sense of family, of history, of being successful and overcoming adversity. We are proud of our quality, our brewing awards and our business success.  In a nutshell, we live the legendary DB spirit every day as we achieve global excellence for our beers and ciders. We focus on innovative thinking and processes, as we do the impossible by turning the impossible into reality.
