Five Points brewery has bought the legendary boozer that sits on the junction it is named after.

Individual Pubs Ltd sold the Pembury Tavern to the brewers this afternoon. 
It is located at the five-point junction linking Dalston Lane to Pembury Road, Amhurst Road, and Lower Clapton Road.
The pub, built in the 1860s, was restored in 2006 following a fire.

It has been a pioneer in establishing a craft beer following in Hackney.

Richard Naisby, managing director of Individual Pubs, the pub group associated with Milton Brewery, said: “The Pembury Tavern has been a fantastic pub for us over the years, but when we were approached by The Five Points about a possible sale, the geographical sense was difficult to ignore. Five Points Brewery is based within 100 yards of the Pembury Tavern.”

He added: “We are proud to have brought so much to the renaissance of good beer in Hackney.”

The Five Points Brewing Company was founded five years ago by two Hackney residents, and has become a brewing giant, producing over two million pints of beer annually.

Ed Mason, co-founder and managing director at Five Points, said: “The Pembury Tavern has pioneered the appreciation of real ale and great beer in Hackney for generations, and we’re really excited to be able to take the reins at this legendary boozer.”

Cambridge-based Milton Brewery has negotiated a 12-month supply deal with Five Points.
