Marking five years of fabulous beer, Five Points Brewing Co is celebrating in the best they know. Offering a range of new and unique collaborations from five acclaimed craft beer breweries from across the UK that will feature at their fifth birthday party in Hackney.
The Five Points birthday bash not only marks five years of amazing beer but also, Five Points continuous community spirit and support for their local Hackney Community. Five Points has come a long way since their humble beginnings. Starting up in 2013, the brewery has produced over two million pints of beer annually, each bursting with flavour and aroma. As well as staying true to their tastes, Five Points was the first brewery in the UK to be an accredited Living Wage employer with it continuing to play an integral part in giving back to the local Hackney community.
Having recently launched a crowdfunding campaign so they can treble the capacity of their birthday celebrations, Five Points will be marking their five years of brewing in the heart of Hackney with amazing food, entertainment and of course, the flavoursome beers. As well being able to party in style, the crowdfunding campaign will also go towards investing in a growing team and restoring their iconic Pembury Tavern to become the first Five Points taproom. On April 21st 2018, Five Points are bringing people into their world so they can experience the thing that they're all about - good quality beer.
To make this celebration bigger and better than ever, the brewery are teaming up with five acclaimed breweries from across the UK and Ireland. From cutting edge innovators like Somerset's Wild Beer Co and Leeds based Northern Monk to industry stalwarts Thornbridge and new wave brewers such as Lost & Grounded and Yellowbelly.
The day event will run from 1pm until 8pm, with partygoers able to try all five of the unique collaboration beers. Each ticket includes a half pint of each of the five new tastes plus a commemorative glass. If you're feeling peckish, Oli Babes and Capish? will be serving a selection of delicious dishes that can be enjoyed along with the banging tunes from resident Five Points DJs. If this isn't enough, afterparty beers, and pentagon pizzas will be held at The Pembury Tavern - Five Points' new brewery tap directly opposite the brewery.
With incredible support from the local community over the last five years, Five Points Brewing Company are incredibly grateful and therefore want to celebrate to show their gratitude. The fifth birthday party will highlight the close-knit relationship that the brewery and local community have and will be calling upon everyone to join in the fun.
Ed Mason, Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Five Points Brewing Company said, “we are a company that is successful and profitable without taking ourselves too seriously. Work days can be long and hard, but knowing there is a great group of people here to help makes all the difference. Our staff have really made Five Points what it is today and even more so the local community for all their help and support.”
