The Kernel Brewery – The place to enjoy a brew or two

Maltby Street market has been open since 2010 and it still remains a secret to most Londoners. I only discovered the market a year or so ago, after a Saturday morning cycle from Borough market.

The market traders are quite spread about from one another, with Ropewalk being the main hub of the market. The next cluster of traders are a 5 minute walk east, at an area named Spa Terminus. This is where you’ll find The Kernel Brewery.

My boyfriend considers himself a beer connoisseur, seriously. When we found this place he was IN his element. We were sampling all the beers (maybe a little too early for an 11am tipple) but that didn’t hold back my connoisseur.

Out of the beers we sampled his top pick was the Pale Ale (Amarillo, 5.1%). A fresh tasting beer with good nose to it. The taste of hops and lemon are distinct but not too overpowering. It is definitely a beer to sit back and enjoy on a quite night in, rather than sinking 8 pints of the stuff!

Set under two railway arches, the brewery shows off its inner workings.

Long beer tables are set in the second arch, where customers are welcome to bring in food to enjoy with their brews. Conveniently, the Kernel is set next to a butcher and they make a mean pork pie, perfect to enjoy with a Pale Ale!
