Mordue Brewery is one of the UK’s most successful craft breweries of the last 20 years. Mordue Brewery have a history of winning national beer awards commencing with our very first ever brand,
Workie Ticket, which went on to win Champion Beer of Britain shortly after we started business. We brew craft beer to the very highest standards and have done from the first day of brewing 20 years ago.
We started with the express intention of brewing beer better than the beers that were available at the time. Our commitment to innovation and improvement hasn't wavered in the subsequent years - this is why we continually win awards for our new beers. This means that we are both established, yet at the cutting edge, our brewery is based just east of Newcastle and is equipped with state of the art equipment.
Over the last 3 years alone, packaged craft beer has grown by 154%. 42% of drinkers now claim they drink craft beer. Draught craft beer is also in strong growth, ahead of the total beer market.
People are turning away from mass-market products and are choosing niche, artisan products with a vast range of flavours and styles. Large national brewers reacting to the change are either buying up small craft breweries or investing in smaller breweries to try and produce craft beer. The craft beer revolution is one of the most innovative and exciting developments for years in the UK beer market. We are at the absolute forefront of that movement.

The original Mordue Brewery was situated on Wallsend village green and run by Joseph Mordue, a brewer of distinction in the 19th Century. In 1995, over 100 years later, two brothers revived Joseph Mordue's superb ales, their range of beers gaining both local and national awards.
The current Mordue Brewery has built up a strong and loyal customer base with the demand for our beer growing by the week.
Since moving to the purpose built West Chirton Brewery, just over the road from the first, smaller brewery, production has increased at an amazing rate It seems Beer drinkers just can't get enough of the subtle taste of Mordue.
The West Chirton Brewery soon became too small to hold the burgeoning business and we are now in a huge new brewery in the Tyne Tunnel Estate...
