Speaking about the festival, the brewery's digital and marketing manager Claudia Mayne said: “The Five Points has made a long-standing commitment to cask ale and proudly brews beer that looks to the future, as well as drawing on the brewing heritage of the past.

“In a changing landscape of beer that has seen a number of acclaimed breweries cease cask ale production, Cask Party at the Pembury Tavern showcases our definition of modern, progressive and ever-relevant British cask beer.”

The Five Points took over the Pembury Tavern last month, after a successful crowdfunding campaign​ in which it raised more than £1m to further grow the business.

Speaking about the brewery’s crowdfunding campaign, founder Ed Mason said: “We have been blown away by the level of interest in our company – to have reached our target so quickly is a massive vote of confidence in our vision. 

“What we love about Crowdfunding is the thousands of investors who are literally invested in our company, our success and who will act as supporters and brand ambassadors." 

The funds will be used to increase the brewery’s capacity in Hackney from 8,000hl to 25,000hl annually, install new external fermentation tanks, make improvements in the brewhouse to improve efficiency and hire 15 new members of staff.

It will also enable Five Points to bring all of its production back ‘in-house’, having produced around 4,000hl at Brouwerij De Brabandere in Belgium since reaching capacity in Hackney in late 2016.
