Formerly a Kidderminster Brewery Co. Ltd house.

Thomas Booth bought the Blue Pig from Dudley brewer George Henry Downes on 23rd October 1920, paying £2,300 for the premises, brewhouse and plant at the rear, the licences, fixtures, fittings and trade utensils. The purchase price also included a plot of land shouldering on King Street, Dudley. Booth re-opened the dismantled brewery at the rear with the assistance of Netherton brewer Solomon Cooksey. He brewed here from 1921 to 1934, when he sold the premises to Julia Hanson & Sons Ltd.

Closed and demolished.
