It seems amazing that this brewery has only been open a matter of months, so well-established are their beers becoming. The brewers have now settled on their three basic recipies and will no longer be labelling beer as ‘First Brews’.
Five Points - Railway Porter4.80ExcellentPlenty of chocolate flavours.
Five Points - Five Points Pale4.40ExcellentThe bittering hop in this one is Magnum.
Five Points - Hook Island Red6.00GoodStrong, red, rye beer, with Chinook, Columbus and Simcoe hops.

An enjoyable visit to this impressive brewery organised by North London CAMRA – the first hosted at the brewery (they have a Brewery Open Day on 6 July). Ed Mason and Head Brewer Greg talked 30-40 of us through the brewery’s short history and their brewing philosophy before we had a taste of one of the beers. The group then went around the corner to the Cock Tavern for further tasting.
Five Points - First Brews No. 4 – Pale Ale 4.40GoodOn gravity dispense. Not as rounded in flavour as this beer can be, with a harsh, bitter aftertaste. I think it was a little bit too ‘brewery fresh’ and green.
