While no longer holding a bar, they still run a bottle shop and will give out enough free samples to make it more than worth a visit. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Visited couple of weeks after they’ve stopped with drinking at the site thing. We’ve visited quite early but there were already few people there. Very good selection of their bottles. Guys and girls working there were very kind letting us try everything we put our eyes on, really appreciate it.

Nice guy working there chatted for a while and cool it was to see how small the brewery actually is! That said you can’t really see that much.. selection was decent but not really much better than kris wines which is way closer to me and not too much cheaper.

Based on 3 visits. Unfortunately the possibility to gather around outside is no longer possible - otherwise I would have rated 5 for ambiance. Was told that frequently some people were not able to behave decent. So you’re still able to visit, have a drink and get your fresh The Kernels for great prices. Relaxing atmosphere, in for a chat and - thank you - no marketing behavior. It’s about brewing beer and great beer this is. One of the best brewers imo of IPA’s and PA’s. Must visit

UPDATE: in September 2015 the brewery stopped selling beer to drink on site, due to excessive crowds (mostly). They are still open the same time on Saturdays and offer the same stellar range of beers for take-away. They also do the occasional special event, such as Zwanze Day, when they utilise their space for on-site drinking.

I have visited the brewery once with my friend. We walked ten minutes, through a driving rain, from Borough Market to get here and it was worth every step. As there are a limited number of outlets to buy Kernel beers, a visit to the source is a guaranteed way to get some. When we got there, the brewer’s apprentice gave us a tour of the facilities and spent a good 20 minutes talking with us about the beers, the brewery, Vermont, skiing and even some other stuff. The facility is tiny and there isn’t much to see, but anyone who has tried a Kernel beer will understand that in this case size doesn’t matter. During this visit we tried a Centennial Pale Ale that was debuting that day and bought four bottles to take home. In the same building as the brewery there is a cheese-maker and a meat vendor, each selling food of the highest quality. The Kernel is without a doubt one of the best breweries in London - and, indeed, England - so for any serious beer fan a visit is mandatoy.
