For over 100 years judges all over the world have recognised DAB's outstanding quality.


We’ll Keep Stacking

Every year, companies from more than 100 countries enter the Brussels-based Institute’s Superior Taste Award to have the quality and taste of their food and drink tested by an independent panel of expert judges. The panel consists of 120 renowned chefs and sommeliers, all of whom are members of the most prestigious European culinary institutes and the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (The International Sommeliers’ Association). Only products with a score of 70% and above are eligible for the muchcoveted Superior Taste Award.

For three consecutive years, 2007, 2008 and 2009, DAB has won the „World’s Best Dortmunder” title at the World Beer Awards in the Category of Premium Lager. The World Beer Awards is a global event that selects the very best internationally recognized beer styles. This annual tasting honours and promotes the ‘World’s Best Beers’ to consumers and the trade throughout the world.

These awards, along with the many others bestowed on DAB throughout its more than 140-year history, is proof of just how unique this exceptional and internationally popular brand is.
