visited by Wakefield CAMRA, Saturday 27th June 2009

Southport Brewery is housed in two units on an industrial estate on the inland side of the town. Unit 3 is the brewhouse.
Paul Bardsley welcomes us to his brewery. He is leaning on the mash tun which is mounted so that it can be tipped for easy cleaning. Behind it it is the hot liquor tank.
Brewing vessels, left to right: mash tun, hot liquor tank, copper, fermenting vessels 1, 2 and 3.The copper is custom-fabricated but all other vessels have previously been used elsewhere, including Fermenting Vessel No.3 which was purchased from Poachers Brewery when that downsized.
The two beers on offer for us to taste were Cyclone, a 3.8% bronze coloured bitter, fruity with a hint of blackcurra nt, and Golden Sands at 4.0%, a golden coloured triple hopped bitter with a citrus flavour. Cyclone is named after a historic ride at Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
