Set in a great 19th century schoolbuilding. Service is good and there are 5 of their own beers on tap along with couple of ciders. Havenít tried the food, maybe next time.

Big brewpub/restaurant in an interesting building. The place is quite big, and a bit complex - lots of rooms, corners, corridors you can adventure in. Especially during weekends (lots of people drinking), it can feel chaotic. It is primarly a finer- dining restaurant, and the food is ok/good. Having their own beers adds to the atmosphere, although of the four Iíve tried, I couldnít find anything special about them. Breweries are rare in Finland, so just for that worth a visit.

Delirium  (8) Copenhagen, Denmark | October 7, 2012
This place is worth visiting for the premises, a former school building with some nice architecture and furnishings. Since it takes up the entire school, itís a huge place, which has been sort of subdivided into separate sections, e.g. one part of the ground floor is the wine-bar area, and earlier in the evening thereís food served in a restaurant setting on the 2nd floor. Despite being popular, the architecture means there are tons of nooks and crannies if you want a quiet conversation as well. As far as beers go, they serve only their own beers, which are interesting but not spectacular. They also brew a range of their own ciders (apple, blackcurrant, etc.).

Nice atmospheric place. Good food, self-brewed beers on taps.

Koulu is a very large brewpub located in the premises of a old school. A variety of different services are fould within the brewpub, such as a traditional pub, a wine bar and a restaurant. The beers are rather traditional and generally uninspiring, although the dark lager was rather good. I think Koulu is worth seeing even for those not interested in the brews.

The beer selection is very thin but on the plus side it consists mostly of their own beers that you canít really get anywhere else. Nice interior.

Visited it after a workshop on the conference with a couple of colleagues/friends. Big old school building, remember someone saying how they went to school there before and after it was converted went there with classmates for beers. Only to find out that their old classroom was a toilet then :D. I could dig that, though not exactly the place Iíd imagine to go out drinking during the night. The guy behind the bar was friendly ínuff. I think the wi-fi didnít work here either (or it was my phone, again). 3 lagers on tap (Juhla-Aura, Reksi, Oktober) - nothing too brilliant but still nice + some ciders they seemed to be very proud of (and the apple one was certainly quite likable). Donít remember the prices now, but Iím quite sure they werenít terrible compared to some other places.

Went there tonight for food and beer. I liked the old stone building, different rooms with different themes. They had some decent live music. Beers werenít bad but the food was fabulous! Service overall was pretty good, but it was spotty at times. Crowd was on the young side, but also had some middle aged and a geezer or two. I got a souvenir tshirt and mug.. Prices were a little steep, but this is Scandinavia after all. Iíd like to return someday.

Serves only own beers - 4-6 alternatives is very little, although there is seasonal variation. Very large patio in summertime, worth visiting then. Food is decent, no gourmet but beats the basic bulk fast food. Worth a visit if you are from out-of-town, but as a local one gets pretty quickly bored with the selection.

Visited 26nd of July for lunch buffet, sat inside on the second floor. Terrible service, unpleasant elder lady who looked sour and treated us with no friendliness what so ever. Even the other female waiter didnít show a slightest effort for customer satisfaction. 5 beers on tap, very thin I think for a place as big as Koulu. Quality of beers not that impressive, average beer to fit for the general Finnish pilsener/lager profile I think. Food was so and so. Not worth the money.
