The Five Points is one of London's best known craft breweries. Based in Hackney, East London, their award-winning beers are stocked nationwide in pubs and in Waitrose, Tesco and Nando's. They are funding to open a new showcase brewery and taproom in the heart of Hackney.
In 2013, we started brewing beer under a railway arch in Hackney, East London. We launched with a simple ethos - to brew modern, flavourful, craft beer with integrity and a commitment to the community we live and work in.
8 years later we have grown from £173k sales in 2013, to £4.8m in 2019 (EBITDA £105,600). And we are pleased to have held our COVID-impacted 2020 revenue at £3m (EBITDA -£69k).
We've opened our first pub, The Pembury Tavern, won numerous awards, earned listings in pubs across London and the UK, and in Nando's, Waitrose and Tesco.
Now, we want to build upon these achievements and our successful 2018 Crowdcube raise - to bring brewing, sales and distribution together at a new Five Points Hackney HQ, and to finally open our own on-site brewery taproom. Planned to be the largest brewery taproom in Hackney, and just a stone's throw from bustling London Fields and Broadway Market.
Covid has been challenging for the hospitality industry, and we have worked hard to adapt, developing a successful e-commerce site with online sales of over £300,000 since March 2020. Our comprehensive, ambitious restructuring plan will allow us to:
- Open our new on-site taproom with a large outdoor area for beer sales direct to the public
- Build a new flagship brewery site in Hackney
- Become more efficient, save costs, and drive new sources of revenue
- Maintain our commitment to East London
