Having successfully raised £280k through crowd funding we have opened our Poole Hill Brewery producing our award winning ales in the heart of Bournemouth. We are now entering the next phase of our business; building the Southbourrne Ales and Tingay’s brands. In order to do this we are looking to invest in marketing, sales and with additional funds opening a chain of small Tingay’s branded bars in some of the countries busiest metropolises. To fund this we are releasing equity in our fourth round of crowd funding to raise up to £200k. Our Investment events give you the opportunity to see what we have achieved so far, discuss our plans and see if joining the Southbourne Brewing Limited owners club is right for you.
For updates on weekly, monthly and special events happening at Poole Hill Brewery check out the new events page.
This will be updated with new special events when they are announced. For starters you can book on to the Father Day Brewery Tour and visit us at Wimborne Folk Festival on the 9th, 10th and 11th of June.
Don’t forget the Quiz is on the last Wednesday of every month so you can exercise the little grey cells tomorrow night at 8pm.
We are pleased to inform everyone that tours are available daily at Poole Hill Brewery from 12pm to 4pm on the hour.
Tours will last for approximately 55 minutes and cost £10 per adult (£1 per child).
Booking is advised, using the main telephone number 01202 557583, but ‘walk-ins’ are also accepted, depending on the size of the current booked tour group.
Tours will be running throughout the year, which will include a visitor centre (once up and running), brewery information and time within the Victorian-inspired taproom so that our brilliant beers can be sampled.
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.
We would like to take this opportunity to meet up with potential new investors for our third round of crowd funding; as well as any existing investors who are interested is having a look round our new facility.
Monday 19th February – 19:00 to 21:00 – at Poole Hill Brewery
Having successfully crowd funded twice we have been able to undergo this sympathetic restoration of a Victorian building in the Triangle area of Bournemouth as well as installing a 20 barrel brewhouse capable of producing 15,000pints a week. Our award winning brands are about to fly onto the local ale market and from Easter our brewery will be operating daily tours through our visitors centre and taproom.
Keen not to stop there- we have been developing a secondary brand Tingay’s for the National market which will include a chain of branded bars across the country.
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,
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.
