The London Beer mile or the Bermondsey beer mile is a well-known destination for the craft beer lovers, it is now a mile and a half, but this won’t change his “name”.
There are about 10 breweries/microbreweries, all of them with sort of industrial look, below the railway arches, wood benches and that typical malt and yeast smell.
We’ve tried several times to go along the whole mile and a half and try all the breweries, but the quality is so elevated that is hard not to try a few beers per each brewery.
Most breweries are open from 11am to 7pm on Saturdays, some of them are open also during the week, the exception is Kernel Brewery that is open just on Saturdays 9am to 2pm, the opening time is variable from place to place, better check on the websites for updates.
The breweries allow you to bring in your own food and drink their beers while having your meal/snack.
Mentioning food, we must mention the nearby Maltby Street food market, a must-see if you’re in the area during the weekend, the market is vibrant and there is a big variety of food and drinks stalls, shops and there are also a couple of gin distilleries where you can try their gin and cocktails.
Our favourite spot is African Volcano, their hamburgers are something incredibly tasty, the meat is so soft that it melts in your mouth almost without chewing it!
Going back to the beer topic, we checked out some of the breweries today, the gorgeous day helped to enjoy the experience even more, we’ll definitely go back again to explore those that we’ve missed.
