Federation to close

Heineken UK -- Scottish & Newcastle as was -- has announced it will close the Dunston Brewery on Tyneside at the end of May. Dunston was the former Federation Clubs Brewery, a co-op owned by workingmen clubs in the North East.
Production of the Tyneside beer, primarily Newcastle [sic] Brown Ale, will transfer to the John Smith's Brewery in Tadcaster. It will be interesting to see if Heineken retains the Tyne Bridge logo on the label of Newcastle Brown. Well, sort of interesting. Does anyone care what happens to such raddled and Bowdlerised brands?
