About us

The Five Points Brewing Company is an independent brewery based in Hackney, East London.

We brew beer that is unfiltered, unpasteurized and full of flavour – the sort of beer we enjoy drinking and we hope you enjoy drinking, too.

We brew beer on site within a Victorian railway arch underneath Hackney Downs Station, or with our partners at a family brewery in Belgium. After many months of recipe development and trial brewing, we brewed our first batch of Five Points Pale on our full commercial brewhouse on the 9th of March 2013. Our flagship Five Points Pale is one of our core range of now eight beers: Five Points Pale, Hook Island Red, Railway Porter, Five Points IPA, Brick Field Brown, Five Points XPA, Five Points Pils and London Smoke. We produce beers across a multiple range of formats, including keg, cask, can and bottle, which are distributed from our Warehouse space on Mare Street.

We are based in Hackney because the owners and founders live in Hackney, and it was important for us to be part of our local community. We strive to be a socially responsible business and employer, contributing to the community around us. We are a Living Wage employer, we run an apprenticeship scheme for 18-24 year olds in Hackney, we source the electricity for our brewhouse from 100% renewable sources, and we are committed to assisting local charities and community projects.

We are of course as committed to the integrity of our brewing as we are to our social and business responsibilities.  It is really important to us that our beers are brewed to the highest possible standards of quality, consistency and flavour.  We are passionate about our beer and want you to be too.  Please don’t hesitate to drop us a line with any questions.
