About DB Breweries
DB Breweries is an iconic New Zealand company that has been part of the Kiwi landscape since 1929. It produces and sells a wide range of high quality beers, ciders and RTDs, including premium global brands such as Heineken and Tiger; local favourites Tui and DB Export; and leading craft brands Monteith’s, Tuatara, Black Dog and Lagunitas (USA). It also operates Drinkworks, which markets and distributes premium beer and cider in Australia, and has a direct interest in over 20 licensed premises in Auckland through Joylab, a joint venture with JAG Hospitality Group.
DB is 100% owned by HEINEKEN Asia Pacific Limited. While our shareholding is global in nature, DB remains very much a New Zealand company with strong ties to the local community. All of our breweries, and our cidery, have long histories in New Zealand and are embedded with a strong sense of Kiwi pride.
