“In 1980 there were only 3 Craft Breweries in New Zealand. In 2011 there were over 50, trending much #craftbeer!”
DB Breweries owns and operates four breweries around New Zealand - Waitemata Brewery in Otahuhu, Tui Brewery in Mangatainoka, Monteith's Brewery in Greymouth and Mainland Brewery in Timaru.
All our breweries are committed to respecting the environment and participating in and inspiring our communities.
Our innovative formal waste, water and energy reduction programmes have been in place since 1998. Each year we review our progress and refine our approach - we are more interested in a long-lasting, innovative solution, than a quick fix.
We pay specific attention to the consumption of New Zealand’s precious raw materials, water, energy and other resources within our processes, and minimise waste emissions to the environment wherever we can.
Our breweries participate in our communities in a way that is meaningful to them, from the Pukaha Mt Bruce sponsorship, to buying bricks to support the flood-devastated Kaeo Rugby Club.
