The Beer Story
Dux de Lux: from the latin meaning "Masters of the Finest"
Synonymous with quality beer production, our in house breweries continue to gain recognition with awards from national and international beer competitions. Crisp clean lagers, creamy black shag stout, real ginger - ginger beer (alcoholic and non alcoholic) and the notorious Nor'Wester Strong Ale. We are proud to produce a fine range of premium beers for all palates.
The first brews to be born within the Dux family of beers were the every popular Dux Lager and Hereford Bitter- brands you still see today. The beer family has now grown to include 7 permanent brands on tap with an exceptional range of seasonal beers specifically brewed for each season.
All Dux de Lux beers are brewed onsite, naturally, with full malts with no preservatives. With a background as a chef, Masterbrewer Richard "Dicky" Fife enjoys cleverly crafting flavours and ingredients and continues to explore the new world of brewing beer today.
To date the Queenstown brewery holds the title for Best NZ Draught Beer for Alpine Ale 2005 and also Best NZ Wheat Beer for Wakatipu Wheat 2005, the Dux de Lux is also proud of our Nor'wester pale ale which gained the title of Grand Champion Beer at the 2003 Australian International Beer Awards - the best beer in the world!
