As can be read here, Mordue Brewery of Tyne and Wear has gone into administration.
It would be sad indeed if this micro went under. In 1997, only two years after they formed Workie Ticket their 4.5% bitter won Champion Beer Of Britain, and a very fine beer it is too. I enjoyed a fair few pints of it on my only beer drinking trip to Newcastle. They have still been winning Beer Of The Festival awards in the last few weeks.
Time will tell of course if this is the end, but I do hope not.
