London’s largest independent brewery is hosting a socially-distanced weekend-long celebration of UK lagers with DJs and Bavarian-inspired pizza specials!

With the real Oktoberfest unable to take place this year, the team at The Five Points Brewing Company have decided to throw their very own socially-distanced celebration in its honour.

Taking place at the company’s Mare Street Taproom on what would have been the famous Munich festival’s opening weekend (18th – 19th September), Five Points Does Oktoberfest will feature lagers from some of the UK’s best craft breweries, including Donzoko, Lost & Grounded, Braybrooke, North Brewing Co, The Kernel, Unity Brewing Co, Burning Sky, Anspach & Hobday and – of course – Five Points!

The event will also feature DJs and the delicious ACE PIZZA, who’ll be on-site serving up Bavarian-inspired pizza specials (think sausage, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut!) plus hot dogs and pretzels from their wood-fired oven. Veggie-friendly seitan alternatives available too. For more information, visit

Offering the perfect space for socially-distanced get togethers, The Mare Street Taproom launched back in July in the yard and arches of Five Points’ Hackney warehouse. Designed to follow the best current safety measures, the venue has room for 154 guests to drink safely, promising an atmosphere worthy of the real Oktoberfest.

Commenting on the event, Five Points Events Manager, Tom Powell said: “Oktoberfest is one of the highlights of the beer calendar, and we always love trying the one-off specials brewed by our friends across the UK beer scene at this time of the year. We’re really excited to be able to pour some of the UK’s finest lagers in a safe environment. It’ll be a fitting tribute to the festival in Munich, and a celebration of great independent beer too.”
