The selction consisted of about 10 taps and 15 bottles at my visit. Several of them were excellent. The service was very good and friendly to talk to. The athmosphere is relaxed and there are many raters here. Iím not a fan of the interior as itís basically just some benches and tables in an old storage room with pallets full of beer everywhere.

Only open on the saturday, this place is a piece of heaven in London. Under the underground, on a small market you will find the Kernel Brewery. The place is clean and clear, really pleasant for a Saturday. You can only taste Kernel beers on tap or bottle and you can buy some bottles to taste it at home. There are table and benches in the middle of the stock (between malt and kegs). Really friendly environment, if you want to eat something visit the others stands of the market and go back to the brewery. Taste the Kernel IPA itís just amazing!

Cool makeshift brewery type feel going on here. In an arch under the railway so every time a train goes past you can hear it. Pretty cool and dingy. Place was packed when I got there at 1pm. There is a counter for bottle purchases and then a counter around the side with the tables for drink purchases. Drinks are cheap from what Iím used to in London. Apparantly they always have something new on tap which hasnít been bottled yet. After a few regular visits they always seem to have the harder to find Kernel stuff. Really cool place. Surrounded by some cool makeshift stores as well. Very enjoyable place to go to

THE place to go for Kernel beers (unsurprisingly). Rough around the edges as youíd expect but itís all part of the charm. Beers are reasonably priced and you can sit and drink. Staff are good and happy to let you try before you buy. Go go go!

Camons  (288) Hasselager, Denmark | September 30, 2013
Industrial looking, but still cozy, brewery in a arch under the railway. Great selection of Kernel beers, about 8 taps and like 12 bottles at my visit. Good varity of styles and great quality of course. Good and knowable service. No food avaible, but you can bring you own or buy some from the vendors next doors. Crowded and very busy, so get there early if possible. Cool crowd with a friendly atmosphere. Cheap prices both for drink in and take away. Hope to be able to go again at some point. A must go if in London on a saturday

An industrial hall with Kernel brews on sale from bottle and tap. Very friendly and nice service. Knowledgeable too. As it is an industrial hall, the surroundings are rather barren, but a nice atmosphere of beer enthusiasts enjoying a pint or two. Decent prices, especially considering the quality and everything. If youíre in London on a Saturday, this is a must stop.

Great place to drink Kernel beers. Pretty decent choice ofmtheir stuff. A bit cramped seating, and not particularly comfortable, but the scene is somewhat compelling.

Easy part of town, but you have to go through a dodgy tunnel and then know where to find the brewery. Industrial storage facility beneath train tracks. Itís not for the looks you need to go here though. Atmosphere is wonderful with all young and a bit hipster kind of people that like to enjoy a tasty glass of beer. Opening times are a bit unhandy (did I say a bit? I have been visiting London >5 times the past two years and have not been able to make a visit yet). Nice selection of some more rare to get Kernel beers as well as their latest few. Maybe the fact that they are not easy to frequently visit, makes it pretty special and makes the atmosphere so good. Everybody is happy to just be there and sample some of Londons finest. Because that is what Kernel is: Londonís finest.
