Meet the Brewer - 5 Points Brewing @ BrewDog Shoreditch
Head down to our bar at 7 pm for the “Meet the Brewer” session with brewers from 5 Points Brewing.
5 Points is located just off Amhurst Road in Hackney. In their own words:
"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 are a small, independent brewery, and we brew and package all our beer ourselves, on site here in East London. After many months of recipe development and trial brewing, we brewed our first batch of Five Points Pale Ale on our full commercial brewhouse on 9th March 2013. Our flagship Five Points Pale is one of our core range of three beers: Five Points Pale, Hook Island Red and Railway Porter. All three are available in keg (served refreshingly chilled), cask (traditional ‘handpull’), and bottle.
We chose to be based in Hackney because the owners and founders live in Hackney, and it was important for us to be based in 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 our energy from 100% renewable sources, and we are committed to reinvesting a 5% of our profits in local charities and community projects."
