This was to be the first stop on the Bermondsey Beer Mile and my sons had spoken highly of the beer. However, we didn't get to try the beer due to the pretentious attitude of the guy behind the counter who made us turn on...More

I was here earlier in the year, as part of the Bermondsey beer mile. Excellent selection and prices. Best beer in London, I just wish they opened for longer! A must for craft beer drinkers. Get there early if you want a seat, though, as...More

The Kernel brewery is now the mainstay of the Bermondsey Beer scene. The Brewery is only open on Saturdays and quite literally gets busier the later in the day you get there, (you have been warned)! I have been there on at least 5 occasions...More
