A new brewery and taproom is opening in Hackney this weekend.

Five Points Brewery & Taproom will offer tank-fresh pints and pizza, brewery tours and evening DJs, with space for 130 people indoors across the ground floor and a mezzanine viewing gallery among the tanks.

Based at local independent brewer Five Points’ headquarters near London Fields and Broadway Market, the Mare Street venue opens to the public this Saturday (November 20).

Five Points co-founder and managing director, Ed Mason said: “We are very excited to be welcoming our local community into our brewery to drink the freshest Five Points beers in London.

“And to be able to keep our new brewery and taproom right in the heart of central Hackney, where it all began eight years ago, makes us really happy.”

Five Points, which has been brewing in Hackney since 2013, opened its new base earlier this year. 

During spring and summer, it was home to a giant pop-up outdoor taproom.

The brewery and taproom at the site will be Hackney's largest, Five Points says.
