Crowd Funding Update

Crowd-FundingDear Beer Lovers, The time is finally approaching when Bournemouth will have both award winning beaches and award winning ales. Southbourne Ales has finally found suitable premises to start brewing our ales in sunny Bournemouth. Having won two awards in the last six months and successfully brewing and selling our range of eight beers in both cask and bottle; everything is coming together nicely. In order to fit out the brewery with a brewhouse, public bar and visitors centre we still need to raise a substantial sum of money and are looking for you to help by investing in our project and sharing this with your friends who might also like to be a part of this exciting project. To follow what’s happening join the journey now!  (Crowd Funding Update)

Cliff Riser

5-Scew-CliffRiser-LaunchCliff Riser 4.5% Pale Ale. After Cliff Riser’s initial limited release finally our Spring Seasonal is available for all to enjoy. This pale ale is typical of the traditional Burton ales with the familiar Goldings hops added at the end of the boil. This beer was popular at The Big Bournemouth Beer Festival and Southbourne Shake ‘n’ Stir.


5-Scew-Grockles-LaunchGrockles 4.5% Blonde Ale. Here we have a gulp of swallows, amongst the UK’s most well known tourists. Grockles Blonde Ale is also here just for the summer with its refreshing peach aromas. As the first of our beers to be available as bottle conditioned your new favourite can make it to the BBQ or even down the beach for the Air Show.


4-Scew-Headlander-LaunchHeadlander 4.2% Bitter. The significant exultation of skylarks breeding at Hegistbury head is celebrated with our special Headlander Beer. Skylarks with their exceptional song and distinctive flight have suffered greatly from modern farming practices. Headlander is brewed using spring sown barley which provides the birds easier landing in the thinner crops and a longer breeding season.

Beach Comber

4-Scew-Beach-Comber-LaunchBeach Comber 5.7% Brown Ale. This style of ale became widely brewed in the 1920s and they were considerably stronger than most modern English versions. Our brown ale Beach Comber at 5.7% recreates this now rare specimen and is a real find with its full flavours.

Sunbather Launched

Sunbather Launch

Dear Beer Lover,
Sunbather is finally jere amd brings a welcome change in the weather with it.
This second stage of our journey introduces the red ales, with sunbather being a fruity, full bodied and sweet ale of just 4%. Its pronounced flavours include toffies and oranges.
overall it’s not quite what you’d expect from a beer as anovice; but that’s what makes ales great, the diversity of styles and flavours.
