The last brew of Newcastle Brown at the Tyne Brewery was actually in 2005, and production was shifted to the Federation Brewery in Gateshead. Only a few miles but still not Newcastle. Production moved to Tadcaster when Heineken closed the Fed brewery in 2010.

Apologies, this distinction was actually in the original copy (along with the miles between Gateshead and Newcastle) but was edited out insensitively for space reasons.
