"Let nothing come between a man and a great beer." Morton Coutts
"Let nothing come between a man and a great beer."
In 1960 Morton Coutts discovered the Holy Grail of beer, continuous fermentation. A process that unlike batch brewing, meant once the brewing started the beer literally never stopped flowing. The process was adopted by the rest of the World and the beer that flowed was Export Gold.
Made using only the finest New Zealand hops, barley and pure spring water, it is perhaps New Zealand’s freshest and most refreshing beer. It has an ABV of 4%, and won a Gold medal at the 2011 Monde Selection awards and continues to win awards around the globe.
The ‘80s were a dark time for New Zealand men. Wine had effectively replaced beer. So Morton Coutts set to work brewing a sophisticated lager that would give wine a run for its money. The result was Export Dry. Dry’s extended batch fermentation and long cool maturation process created a premium lager that did the impossible. Anyone can make a beer that is refreshing and anyone can make a beer that is full of flavour, but only Morton could brew one that did both. Thanks to its sophisticated taste, men could finally say no to wine.
Export Dry went on to win Best Lager in the World in 1994, and gold medals at the 2010 and 2011 Monde Selection. Wine didn’t even get a finalist.
Naturally brewed 33% longer to remove all the sugars you don’t need and give you all the flavour you want, Export 33 continues Morton Coutts’ tradition of taking on convention and confounding critics.
This full flavoured lager was launched in 2008 and named ‘Best Low Carbohydrate Beer in New Zealand’ in 2009 and 2010 at the NZ Beer Awards. It also became the first New Zealand low carb beer to win a Gold medal at the prestigious Monde Selection awards in Belgium in 2010, winning Gold again in 2011.
The most refreshing beer you will experience, Export Citrus delivers a clean, crisp taste of DB Export beer with natural lemon juice. Brewed without additives or preservatives, with a distinguishable cloudy lemon look, this exciting new beer offers drinkers something completely different to anything they have tried before.
Following the award winning Export Citrus in 2013, we pushed the boundaries even further and brewed the Citrus Grapefruit. We took our DB Export beer and blended it with an added splash of natural Grapefruit juice, complementing the refreshment with a hint of bitterness for a distinct twist. Pop one open and let the pleasant aroma pull you in for a natural taste, perfect for sunny afternoons.
