The beer that saved men from wine.

Born in 1987

In the late '80s, the sensation of wine bars struck New Zealand. Men were offered no escape from the wine that, while delicious, just wouldn’t cut it at the end of a hard day’s work. DB Export Dry with its sophisticated taste meant that when offered a wine, men could say with confidence, “No thanks”.

A distinctly drier lager with light, aromatic hops to balance slightly malty and fruit notes.

Brewed to meet a sophisticated taste profile and with an ABV of 5.0%, this lager was brewed for distinction.  Awards to its name include Best Lager in the World in 1994, and gold medals at the 2010 and 2011 Monde Selection. Wine didn’t even get a finalist.

Distinctly dry in taste, with a premium crisp finish.
