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, the superb ales were revived.

This incarnation of Mordue built up a local strong and loyal customer base which saw demand require no less than 3 expansions of brewery, from the original West Chirton site to a huge brewery in the Tyne Tunnel estate. This new range of beers gained both local and national awards.

Mordue is now part of the Blue Brewing Company.

Blue Brewing is a Gypsy brewery and proud of it!


Blue Brewing is owned by a group of North Easterners with a wide background of skills who came together, not only to keep the Mordue beers alive but also for their shared passion for Craft Beer.

“Gypsy brewery” is a brewing term for breweries like us who are nomads, who have no fixed facilities and use other breweries equipment to brew their own beers. To celebrate we are creating No Place Brewing our creative, collaborative, craft beer brewery which intends to create innovative beers for your enjoyment.  

To ensure continuity of the exceptional quality standards Blue Brewing have retained the services of Mordue’s former Operations Director to oversee the quality of the beer and retain its high standards that you have come to expect.

We at Blue brewing are also conscious of our environmental impact so we are fully paperless on invoicing, tracking, delivery and payments.

Come and try one of our beer brands at your local pub, bar, specialist bottle shop and find us at many local markets and Festivals!
