A London Fields brewery has opened its new outdoor taproom venue just in time for pizza-filled open-air get togethers this summer. 

The Five Points Brewing Company will be serving its full range of tank-fresh beers in the outdoor space, which is based in the yard and arches of the brewery's new headquarters in Mare Street.

The venue is also preparing to launch a brand new pop-up at the space called ACE Under The Arches next Thursday on July 8. 

Five Points co-founder Ed Mason said: “We love ACE Pizza, and we love their attention to detail.

"Their 48-hour cold fermented dough makes for a delicious pizza crust, and their flavours and ingredients combinations are incredible. Having worked with them at our pub The Pembury Tavern, they were our first choice when it came to inviting a food brand to join us at our new open-air Hackney Taproom this summer.”

Along with the ACE Pizza residency, the Five Points outdoor taproom will also be hosting a series of events throughout the summer, including screenings of the Euros, guest DJs and bands, plus a range of beer and food festivals and collaborations. 

On July 24 and 25, seafood specialists Decatur will be serving up Louisiana-inspired seafood boils and chargrilled oysters and in August the venue will host a British hop beer festival.

Five Points will also be giving away a free beer in exchange for donations to The Hackney Foodbank. Customers can get involved by booking a table between July 22-25 and bringing donations on the day.
