FAQ's


1.Short History

In 2009 our GOLDEN SANDS ale won Champion Best Bitter at the Great British Beer Festival. For Paul Bardsley, brewer, delivery driver, cleaner etc. this award was a huge pat on the back for a one man band in our industry usually associated with large multinational brewers. Since those early days times have changed but we remain true to our traditional brewing style and use the same 5 barrel brew kit that was used to brew GOLDEN SANDS. Southport Brewery Ltd. is passionate about cask- conditioned real ale and it`s commitment to brewing a quality product. Our beers are made with Maris Otter and Lager Malt sourced from British farms and then mixed with hops gathered from around the world . Our yeast is from a top regional brewer. A multiple award winning combination that gives a blend of bitterness and flavour making our beers taste unique.


2. Information on beer names

Visitors to SOUTHPORT often recognise the names of our beers as iconic images of our seaside town. On your journey to the resort you may see some of them, often beginning with bouncing along the coast road with excitement, there the GOLDEN SANDS of the beach appear before you. Whether strolling along the pier or walking from Lord Street towards the arcade ,the Carousel ride spins in front of the Marine Lake. High above the fairground, once stood the exciting CYCLONE ,a big dipper ride that thrilled many a tourist and resident of the town. These SANDGROUNDERS once used to see RED RUM galloping along the sands, they can still see the OLD SHRIMPER working the tide for cockles and the famous Southport Shrimps. Knowing that the coast is protected by the R.N.L.I. formed after the tragic rescue attempt of the crew of the Mexico, on a stormy and DARK NIGHT on this very coast. Behind the beach are the sand dunes and pinewoods that are the home of the NATTERJACK TOAD and the red squirrels. We hope you enjoy your time in Southport, relaxing with a pint in one of the many pubs and clubs. Our beers in the 3 bottle packs are a good momento of your visit.
