Episode #230: Drinking at The Kernel

As the traditional home to styles such as stout, porter, pale, and IPA, craft beer has always been part of English culture. But it hasn’t been until recently that brewers in the UK started to brews these beers in the American style – often with copious amounts of new world hops. This is almost like a second wave English craft beer scene. And nobody is doing these beers better than London’s The Kernel. Join Chris and Steve at the source as they taste the cutter edge of British craft.

    More episodes with Steve, please. Love his passion and technical knowledge. I guess that’s what you get with an engineer.
