Useless place with no service snobby neighbours and only a few bottles for takeaway. Complete unnecessary to go here since they don't allow drinking on site and their beers are on tap elsewhere. No idea why this is rate so highly, it's a bottle shop with terrible hours and rude neighbours.

It was pouring rain outside so I was happy to get some roof on me finally. Plenty of bottles around. We were allowed to drink on premises, but I don't know if it was an exception. Staff weren't the gloomiest in area, but not the happiest as well, but we clicked somehow. Will come back if in area, but beside bottles to go or similar this place is dead boring.

Visited on a trip through Bermondsey. As other have said only open for off sales. Although people were drinking beer when I visited. The staff were curt boarding in rude. So we didn’t stop. Worth a visit to pick up a few of the kernel beer if you want to.

Another Bermondsey brewery, and a well-known one! We got a spontaneous tour by one of the workers. Only bottles to go are sold, there is no taproom. Still a fun place!

End unit in the small industrial estate it resides in. Its own bottles are neatly presented on a table just inside the shutters. Essentially just a bottle shop.

Update:
Since they’ve discontinued the on-site drinking the need to come here is more questionable. If you have designs on being a Kernel completist you need to visit regularly because you’ll get all the new releases (which are not easy to keep track of). If you don’t they might pop up anywhere and they’re easy to miss because you simply aren’t in the right place at the right time. If you’re not a Kernel completist there’s not really any need to visit as Kernel beers are quite easily found elsewhere. You may, of course, want to visit to buy the new bottles and drink / share them elsewhere.

Original review: Score - 4/9/12/na/8/16=82
So, it’s a brewery under railway line in a less than inspiring neighborhood that only opens for a few hours on Saturday for bottle sales (and on-site drinking) and a couple of beers on tap. Still it manages to score highly for ambience and selection. Firstly, the Kernel folk are great and always around. Secondly, anyone interesting from the beer world who is town is almost certainly going to call in and, because of the limited opening hours, you’re almost certainly going to bump into them. Thirdly, although the number of beers available is not huge, they change every week and, unless you go every week you are bound to miss some because of the number of different beers they make. So definitely an essential visit. Way more than the sum of the parts.

Chociaż browar zaprzestał serwowania piwa z kranu juz jakiś czas temu, jest to dalej jedno z najcześciej odwiedzanych miejsc na piwnej mapie Londynu. W każda sobotę, pomiędzy 10-14ta można przyjść do browaru by skosztować piwa i zakupić go w butelce. Obsługa cierpliwie naleje Ci każdego piwa i pomoże w wyborze. Dobra rada, za nic nie proście ani nie otwieracie piwa na miejscu by napić się go z butelki!
