Five Points launches collaboration range to mark fifth anniversary
London brewer Five Points is celebrating its fifth birthday by launching a limited-edition range in collaboration with some of its most exciting craft counterparts.
It has teamed up with fellow London producer Gipsy Hill to create a lemon and blueberry Berlin Weisser that is purple in colour.
The duo used lemon zest from Hackney neighbour Square Root Soda and blueberry puree and concentrate to create a tart 4.8% beer brewed without hops.
A collaboration with Magic Rock of Huddersfield has yielded a 6.5% abv IPL, while East Sussex brewer Burning Sky helped it create a 5% abv Belgian wit.
Finally, it linked up with Bristol’s Wiper & True to launch the 2.2% abv Table Beer, a sessionable amber ale brewed with El Dorado, Citra and Mosaic hops.
“This is the second time we’ve collaborated with other breweries,” said co-founder and managing director Ed Mason. “In April this year we teamed up with five acclaimed breweries to celebrate our fifth birthday, Five Years of Five Points, so it seemed only fitting to end the year the same way.”
The beers are available on Five Points’ web store.
Five Points began life as a microbrewery in east London back in 2013, and now it produces the equivalent of 2 million pints a year, having enjoyed a successful crowdfunding campaign to boost its footprint.
