We’re pleased to welcome all well behaved children, dogs and adults at Brewhouse & Kitchen 🙂
English Style Ale - Session Bitter
How different the future of this country would have been if Sir Winston Churchill’s fall in Bournemouth, 1892, had been fatal. Whilst out one night walking, or doing what 18 year old boys do, he fell off a 29ft bridge rendering him unconscious for 3 days and bedridden for 3 months! Luckily though, he survived, and ended up doing some pretty great things! It’s no secret that Churchill loved a beverage or two so what better way to show our respect than with a traditional English ale. Raise your glass of session bitter in his honour.
Single Hop Pale Ale - English Style Ale
Flying from Bournemouth to Spain in the early 1950s was no more than a mere dream! However, in 1958, the pale Brits’ dreams were answered. Local Palmair established an introductory “single flight to Palma” – sun and Sangria only a hop away! After their first operational year, they aspired to being the pioneering force behind the start of the “package holidays to Spain”. In respect to their single flight, here’s a single hop ale, made with love – cheers to Palmair for giving us a need for sun cream!
Blonde Ale - American Style Ale
Here’s a display of real community spirit and very wise investment. After suffering a catalogue of knee injuries and under threat of never returning to playing professional football, Bournemouth FC veteran Eddie Howe was loaned from Portsmouth in 2004 back to his adopted home club, where supporters took matters into their own hands when the club’s financial problems rendered his future uncertain, raising the sum of £21,000 for his official transfer – fondly known as “Eddieshare”. Fast track 3 seasons and 270 appearances later after his instrumental role in saving the club, Eddie moves from player to management and embarks on an amazing road to success culminating in Bournemouth FC joining the world-class Premier League in 2015!
Traditional IPA - IPA
It’s hard to imagine what kind of brain is required to make up stories such as the unorthodox, horror story of The Modern Prometheus (Frankenstein) (1818), and it would surprise you to know that it was in fact an 18-year-old Mary Shelley whose dream inspired the legend! We reckon you have to have quite a spicy personality to come up with a novel like so we’ve brewed a spicy Traditional IPA in her honour.
Red Rye Ale - American Style Ale
In tribute to one of the world’s best guitarist, the late, great, Greg Lake, born in Bournemouth in 1947. He honed his style under the tutelage of a Dorset music teacher who encouraged his imaginative style, later to become the trademark of his group ‘Emmerson, Lake & Palmer’, who after an enthralling performance at IOW in 1971, were firmly established as the world’s first ‘Supergroup’, with their rendition of Lake’s ‘Lucky Man’, which he wrote whilst at school in Bournemouth, becoming their legendary classic.
American Pale Ale -American Style Ale (KEG)
Who better to name our American Pale Ale after than our adopted national treasure, Bill Bryson. Whilst working for the Bournemouth Echo during the 1970s, he wrote his beloved book Notes from a Small Island. The book is inspired by his ‘Grand Tour’ of Blighty from an American perspective –filled with jokes and interesting facts about Britain – it’s well worth a read. We’re sure a man of this acumen couldn’t resist a pint of Yankee Hack!
Belgian Blond - Belgian Style Ale
Who would have thought that Bournemouth Schoolboy, Alex James, would become the bassist of one of the most iconic bands in the 1990s! After meeting his fellow bandmates, Damian Albarn and Graham Coxson, at Goldsmith’s College in 1988, they became the nemesis of Oasis. In 1994/1995, Blur and Oasis released their singles on the same day causing the music charts to shut down. So, whether you were a Madferit or Blurite, raise your Belgian Blond pint to the biggest feud in music history.
Black IPA - IPA
“I wanna tell you a story” about one of the greatest comedians, singers and actors of the 70s and 80s TV era , Bournemouth resident, Max Bygraves. After falling into showbiz, he changed his name to Max from Walter in honour of comedian Max Miller. As well as having his own TV show, Bygraves appeared in the Royal Variety Performance 20 times! In tribute of this charismatic story teller, we have brewed a Black IPA, full of body and personality!
Witbier - Wheat Beer
Imagine the fun to be had by Julian, Dick, Anne, Georgina (George) and Timmy the dog, AKA the adventurous ‘Famous 5’, created by novelist and Bournemouth resident, Enid Blyton in 1942, on their cheery picnics along the Dorset coastline where boiled eggs, ham and jam tarts were washed down with “lashings of ginger beer” – in tribute to the 21 book series which have been and are still enjoyed by schoolchildren the world over, we have brewed a refreshing Witbier with wholesome drinkability!
Cask Pils - Lager
Inspired by his travels to Continental Europe, the brilliant young architect Benjamin Ferrey was commissioned by local ‘wasteland’ landowner George Gerwin in 1836, to build a marine resort and elegant summer retreat to rival that of the esoteric ‘Tregonwell family’s summer estate’, making it available to all and which laid the earliest foundations for Bournemouth to become the thriving summer holiday destination it is today!
American Amber Ale- American Style Ale
Here’s a record that’s still to be broken. Picture this, it’s 1971 and Bournemouth are playing Margate in the FA Cup. Ted McDougall, a Bournemouth footballer, is set for one of the best games of his life. In this one game, he scored 9 goals – the most goals ever scored in an FA Cup! This incredible achievement dubbed him ‘Supermac’ and placed him in the same league as some of the footballing greats of today! As Supermac now lives in the USA, coaching the Atlanta Silverbacks, we’ve honoured him with this American Amber Ale!
Stouts & Porters - Historic Porter
It is no secret that most famous author and Bournemouth resident JRR Tolkien, responsible for the classic trilogy Silmarillion, The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, loved beer and talking into the early hours of the morning – something we probably all like to do after a few pints! Grab a glass of this fantastic historic porter and cheers to Middle Earth. Originally written as one book, lack of available paper meant it had to be published in 3 separate parts – probably the best commercial literary decision ever.
Smoked Stout - Stout & Porter
We’ve named our smooth yet complex smoked stout in honour of regular Bournemouth visitor, the early 19th century, and much revered, romantic English poet Shelley, whose plans to spend his twilight years as a resident here were thwarted during a sailing fatality in Italy. His wishes came true in part as his wife Mary, who continue with their dream and built what was to become known as Shelley Manor, later was buried along with the ashes of the lodestone’s heart – who said ‘romance was dead?’
