Notice that there is new brewpub in Helsinki, in the middle of touristic centre of the city:


Currently their two beers are brewed by Saimaan Juomatehdas (which has connections to owners), but they have already started their own production. So own beers are available in few weeks. They serve also other Finnish micros on tap.

and what a brewery they are! one of the best unfiltered pilsners of the entire trip, and that includes nearly two weeks in Franconia. the weizen was solid, as was the alt. the brown ale was a stinker, though, given the different brewing system thatís not a surprise. if youíre a fan of zwickel pilsner, give this one an honest go.

Agree. Lovely stuff - the Alt was a perfect match for my tastebuds.

They also have a BB03/2015 Laitilan Imperiaali. I donít know when it was brewed, but itís aging *excellently* - I highly recommend everyone getting a rerate there, I just pushed the beer over my 4.0 "wow" threshold.
