the kernel brewery

October 25, 2010

lots of good stuff this weekend. first things first, i rented a hasselblad 503 CW from a camera shop in london for the weekend … i’ve been researching medium format cameras, and i wanted to try it out. it was a beauty and i had a lot of fun learning to use it and shooting photos all weekend.  the photo above was one of my favorites from the first roll. i’ll share more of these photos throughout the week.

and on saturday afternoon, christoph, elizabeth and i went to the kernel brewery. this local brewery has quickly become my favorite in london, ever since some generous friends gave me a few of their beers to try last month. in the photo above, you can see the offerings for sale this past saturday. i can’t pick a favorite, but the amber ale was particularly well-suited to a blustery afternoon. their brewery shop is under the railway arches just off of druid street in bermondsey, and it’s open on saturdays as a part of the excellent maltby street market (read a nice article about the market HERE). i bought a few bottles to bring home and we enjoyed a few beers (and cheese) underneath the railway arches. it was an excellent way to spend an october afternoon.

    Ooh! How did you like the Hassy? I think you’ll do great things in medium format. I love my Yashica Mat G124.

    Becoming my cultural one-stop, this place. Just moved to Bermondsey and had no clue this brewery was there. And Maltby Street Market? Suds and cheese? I’m going.

    nice pictures! we checked out the maltby street market before we moved from london and really loved it. it pretty much has everything you need. a great coffee shop, a really good veg. stand, some good cheese and a brewery. great video from the kernel brewery here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OW06XNCucqk

    Adding it to our list of things to do when we visit London. Gorgeous photos as always. It sure does sound like it was a perfect afternoon. The cheese settles it for me. The cheese and beer for my husband!
