A local... Well, perhaps not a dive, but not that far from it either. The Ruosniemi brews on tap as well as the porter especially made for them by the Beer Hunters brewpub that is practically next door. Spacious with sports blaring (hockey night) from the tellies. Service was alright, if a bit stiff. Probably because I asked for a half, but they only served medium.

There was two Ruosniemen beers (Pikkupomo and Piirimyyjä) on tap. But unfortunately they had some temperature issues and I couldn’t get any. Otherwise the beer selection was quite limited and boring. I’ll check the taps tonight again.

This old English style pub and sports bar has now a microbrewery tap. Lately they have had Ruosniemen Pikkupomo on tap on regular basis, probably only place in Finland. Small bottle selection but there is some non-bulk beers available. Nothing rare, but you can find something to drink at least.
Bottle selection has got much better lately and it is changing, so the worth of visit at least for locals. They have 2 Finnish micros on tap, the other one is usually from Ruosniemi, the other one is Stallhagen seasonal (mostly). Restaurant manager is very interested about craft beer and organizes the beer festival here every summer. Festival is very good with lots of Finnish microbrews available and there is a chance to meet the brewers selling their own beers.
