What do you do here at Five Points?
Cook up the wort!
.

What was the first beer to impress you?
Drinking bottles of Fuller’s Bengal Lancer at the Cricketers Pub in Dorking. The OG of (and still one of the best) English IPAs.
.
.
What’s your favourite Five Points beer?
Pils. This is a proper pilsner. Brewed traditionally, it’s clean, refreshing, and well balanced. Exactly what you need after a brew day.
.
.
What do you like about the beer industry?
The innovation. As a beer drinker I constantly feel like a kid in a sweet shop. As a Brewer, I feel there are endless possibilities to stretch my imagination. It’s a great time for beer.

What’s your favourite thing about Five Points?
Five Points has always been a brewery I’ve looked up to - clean branding and a truly solid line up of core beers. I’m proud to now be part of the brew team, and I am excited to see how we progress through further collabs and new Brewery toys to play with!

Sam, our quality manager, tasting some beers from our barrel ageing and souring project. This one’s our 1000th brew imperial stout!

We are supporting Well Street Against Racism this Sunday! Sound systems, food traders, tasty beer - and all money raised goes to charity!

Kicking off this year's @gbbf_official with our @fullers & Friends collaboration - Transatlantic Golden Ale.

Straight from London Craft Beer Festival into @gbbf_official! Beers are ready to go for tomorrow thanks to these lovely folks.

What a weekend! Thank you to everyone that came to see us at #LCBF18 this year.

One day left at Tobacco Dock! We’re on the East London bar at @weare_beer #LCBF18 for the last session of the weekend. Come find us!

Pop in and see Louis at @boroughwines on Wilton Way. Perfect spot to stock up on beers for this lovely evening!

We’re getting to welcome another brilliant new addition to our team this week. 👋 Alice, Sales & Business Development Director.

What do you do here at Five Points?
Helping to shape the future of Five Points, getting great beer into more people’s hands – it’s pretty exciting!
.
.
What was the first beer to impress you?
Slightly controversial but my first move away from mainstream lagers was to Weissbier and Paulaner Hefe Weissbier is definitely (and still is) one that stood out for me.
.
.
What’s your favourite Five Points beer?
If I really had to pick, it would be XPA. A super light and sessionable Pale Ale that still has loads of tropical and hoppy flavours!
.
.
What do you like about the beer industry?
The collaboration. Especially in the independent brewery scene. There’s no shame in asking a fellow brewery for a bit of advice or help – everyone is always sharing ideas and cheering on each other’s successes.
.
.
What’s your favourite thing about Five Points?
The people and the ambition. Despite the everyday stresses and strains the brewery can bring, there’s a real camaraderie in Five Points – everyone pulling together and supporting each other to deliver our ambition of bringing everyday great beer to as many people as we possibly can!
