    Youngest director is fifty. Judging by the age of the company secretary they'll be around a while yet.

    Buffys brewery from Norfolk are to close due to the saturated marketplace.Use to see them regularly around London and at beer fests. Like Auqalung said it seems to be the older established brewers that are struggling to complete with the new kids.

    Default Mordue Brewery ceases trading.

    Mordue Brewery, famous for beers such as Workie Ticket and Radgie Gadgie, has gone into administration. Article here:

    Another example of a fairly long standing brewery going. I had them down as a totally old school but looking at the beers on their web site that doesn't seem to be the case.

    Agree with the other replies, that is a shame, I've only had a few of their beers but found them to be enjoyable.

    Always though they were over rated but each to their own.

    It's a brilliant new business model. Crowdfund regularly from the internet, spunk it up the wall, go into Administration, sell your brand name to Molson Coors.

    I sincerely hope that the creditors are paid every last penny that is wrung out of the process but as any regular reader of Private Eye will know, those at the helm of failed businesses often seem to have a few quid in their back pocket afterwards, somehow.

    I have mentioned on here before about Hopstuff.When they had the last crowdfunding £800,000 they were valued at £10 million.Thats a lot of money for a brewery I rarely see on my jaunts around London.I think Aualung thought similar.We should see them more often as Molson Coors have a big contract with Wetherspoons.
