A large beer hall type venue in a working brewery. Great and friendly service with a good selection of their own beers. Prices are decent, but be warned as an online ticker, there is no cell service inside. A great brewery and a must for anyone in London.

On a Saturday morning (the only day they’ re open) in October. 10 beers on the menu, sad to say that theres no tasters, only bottles. So I took only two beers before we go visit the Towers Of London !!! And 4 bottle to go for latter. Sitting on wood logs in a back alley, it was a very good feeling to discover those two amazing beers in this very old environment. First time in London and I can’t wait to come back.

Great place to try and buy Kernel beers. A bit difficult to find but great selection on tap and in bottles to take away. Prices are reasonable and beers are as fresh as they get. They let you sample anything they have on tap or in bottle. Only open Saturday for limited hours but well worth the visit.

Ouvert de 9h à 14h seulement le samedi et pas besoin de plus de temps pour remplir les coffres. L’endroit est grouillant de vie et les bouteilles s’écoulent à un rythme que peine à tenir le staff. La liste de bouteilles disponibles et de fûts est impressionnante considérant que ce sont que des bières que la maison est incroyable.

(Revisited Apr 2014, replaces rating of the old location) Nice micro brewery under the railway arch south-east of London Bridge. The new location is bigger than the original, but that is definitely needed, due to the rising demand of their beers. It still tends to get quite crowded during the Saturday afternoons. Inside it’s a open hall with wooden benches and tables. Bottles for take away are sold at the entrance and the keg beers are served at the bar inside. Service is friendly and efficient, but there’s still usually a queue (and then there’s another queue for the toilet). Beer selection is very good, they have 7 or 8 of their own high quality beers, and usually different beers every weekend. A good selection of bottled beers as well. Since my last visit they have doubled the number of toilets (from one to two), so that queue is a bit shorter. It’s a slightly different experience than sitting in a cosy old-fashioned pub by the fire, but an interesting one, and since the beers are so exceptionally good I’ll keep coming back. A must visit.

Opend every Saturday till 4 pm. Half year ago - 10 beers on tap, and many in bottles. Taps are fresh, intense in nose and hoppy in taste. Also excellent bottles, e.g. barrel aged stout 7,7 %. Kernel is simply an obligatory visit when you’re in London. Much better than top craft beer pubs there. I’ll be back!

One of many factory units under railway arches in Bermondsey. This used to be a no-go area and now it is a cosmopolitan walk about. The brewery is only open for drinkers on a Saturday, so planning has to take place. We found it slightly tricky to find but once there you find a row of trestle tables where it is best to share space, making it a good place to meet people. It has a cold feel, it is a very open area. The beer, and after all this is why you are here, is split between the Kernels many bottles to the front and a few kegged taps at the back. It has a good buzz on a sunny lunchtime but does get packed. There are just 2 loo’s so plan ahead.

The best brewery in London and a must visit for anyone in town on a Saturday. Usually around 15 or so fresh Kernel beers available across a bunch of different styles with an occasional brewery-only beer. The prices are cheaper than you’ll find Kernel beers anywhere else. The staff here are great. Very friendly and knowledgeable about their beers. The brewers are usually around and happy to chat. It can get pretty crowded around midday especially when the weather is nice. I really wish it was open more frequently.
