Southbourne Brewing Limited – Investment Event

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.

Postcards from Dublin

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.

Crowd Funding Updates

22 May 2015

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.




August 2014

Dear Beer Lovers,

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.




July 2014

Dear Beer Lover,

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.



Cliff Riser

June 2014

Dear Beer Lover,

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.
