Hackney’s Five Points to open new showcase taproom venue in time for easing of Lockdown restrictions

  • Five Points will bring brewing, sales and distribution together at a combined flagship site on Mare Street in Hackney
  • A brand new on-site taproom will host visitor tours and beer tastings, and will have a large outdoor area for open-air hospitality
  • The venue will be the largest brewery taproom in Hackney, close to London Fields and Broadway Market
  • The company aims to complete Phase 1 of the project in time for April reopening of outdoor hospitality 
  • Company will be raising fresh investment funding and allowing customers to invest, with perks to include bar tabs in the new taproom, free birthday pint and more
  • Move forms part of the company’s response to the impact of Covid-19
  • Five Points reaffirms commitment to community, with 2021 Charity Partners announced

Co-Founder and Managing Director, Ed Mason, said: 

“The past 12 months have been incredibly challenging for independent breweries, as they have for all small businesses. So it is incredibly exciting to be able to look to the future and place the company on a secure footing with a new brewery and taproom, in our Hackney home. I cannot wait to be sharing pints in the sun in our new outdoor taproom this summer”

The new site will be based at 61 Mare Street, London, E8 4RG.
