Due to the state of the roads and pavements the tap room has decided to remain closed today (Friday 2nd March). We will continue to monitor the situation and update you all as soon as we know the situation going forwards.
Thank you for your continued support.
Due to the snow disrupting travel to and from the taproom at Poole Hill Brewery (for both our staff and visitors) we have made the decision to close early today, so will be shutting at 16:30.
We will keep you updated if the weather effects their opening hours over the next few day.
Many thanks for your continuing support.

Where we will be heading next on our adventure?
The red ales of Ireland which can be sampled in the taverns of the Temple Bar area of Dublin are quite different than our English ales and hopefully we shall be recreating the taste and experiencing some of the craic down the pub here in Dorset.
The hops have just been ordered including Galena, which impart some grape and peach flavours.

Dear Beer Lover,
News flash from Phipps Brewery Northampton where I’m at The Label Of The Year 2015 awards.

And in first place for the Standard Label ….
Southbourne Ales, Sunbather.
Dear Beer Lover,

Dear Beer Lover,
After delays from the crowd funding service provider and not being prepared to radically alter my ethics; we have changed our platform.
The fundraiser will be starting on the 10th June and running for 30 days. During that time you can register with them to see details of our business plan, financial forecasts, exit strategies and much more.
I shall also be out and about at various venues should you wish to have a chat about any of the details, these will be posted on our Facebook site.
I hope that you find our plans interesting and please feel free to provide any feedback.
Dear Art Lovers,
After receiving many requests for large prints of our pump clip images I am pleased to announce that nine different prints shall be available to purchase from our web site www.southbourneales.co.uk .The images are limited to 200 numbered and signed prints.
Each Giclee high quality artist print is on Albrecht Durer watercolour paper printed with quality pigments that mean in 100 years time your image s could be collector’s items. However today these bright and distinctive works will make excellent value wall features for your home or business.
Dear 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.
