I loved this place, this bring me back the Brazilian Oktoberfest, with German music versions, Bavarian style, the whole place is cool. I ask for the 7 sampler beers which comes in 7 glass with 7 different beer at 20 Euro. Not cheap, but worth than miss it. Also they have Chiffon and bottles to take to home. The food was amazing, delicious. I was there at Happy hour time and believe it is between 12:00 to 14:00 and I got a nice discount for that. I recommend a lot to go to this place harder if you never been at a Bavarian Brewery or Fest.

The inside garden with a huge wooden horse with and even bigger wooden penis is awsome. The service is good, there are quite many beers that are available all the time. Many hang-over mornings have been spent at this place.

7 of their own beers are on tap, I only tried 2. Medieval looking interior with Bavarian music playing. Bench seating. I had a pizza. It was quite good but it is ridiculously huge.

We only had a day in Talinn on our cruise, and we ate lunch here. Was surprised they had 1L beers, awesome! Tasted pretty good too, as I recall. Yeah, it’s touristy and kitchy, but go with it and you’ll have fun. Actually the Estonians have deep ties to Germany, so it’s more authentic than people think. Service very good, prices reasonable.

Beer House is located in the old town of Tallinn. In May 2008, this German style large brewpub offered 7 house beers. Even though the brewers could use a bit more imagination considering the beer styles they brew, the quality of the products is above average among Estonian breweries. I found the way some waiters/waitresses have dressed a bit corny but, if the traditional German style is preferred, who am I to disagree :-) I have visited the place twice and on both occasions the food was good. I recall that during my first visit in Summer of 2005 the service was pretty rough but this year it was much better - in fact the waiters were very friendly. Beer House is a touristic place but, unfortunately, there is no competition in this field in Tallinn. So if you happen to be around, don’t hesitate to pop in.

A massive, cheesey spot in tthe middle of Old Town, it’s tough to pretend you’re not a tourist while you’re in this place. Having said that, the beer really is pretty damn good. A very fresh and zesty pilsner, an appropriately dark and malty dunkel and a lovely assortment in between makes it worth a stop. Try to get there early to avoid the worst of the touristy vibe (or embrace it and just have a good time). The beer is very expensive - even for Old Town (20 Euro for a sampler?!) but you may want a reprieve from the typical and ubiquitous Estonian lager.

Beer House is a brewpub in the style of a Bavarian bierkeller, coming with the full range of German lagers, from helles and pilsner to märzen, with the odd honey beer thrown in for good measure. True to style, the male waiters dress in lederhosen and the firm busted waitresses in low-cut Bavarian dresses. So, yes, this is a tourist trap and has little to do with Estonian culture, but it’s still worth a visit. If not for the show, then surely for the hearty portions of Bavarian-style food (I had an excellent pork knuckle with sauerkraut) and the 7 beer degustatsioon for just €20. Though not all seven beers impressed me, some of them - such as the Vana Viini vienna lager - showed that the female brewmaster Eve Toomela knows what she’s doing. Visited on 2013-06-30.

Beer house is a vast Bavarian style brewpub located close to the central square of the old town. Although I’m quite fond of Bavarian style restaurants, this place is decorated to the point that it is kitschy. This, combined with the soap-like aftertaste of the Märzen I ordered, caused me to leave the place right after finishing the first beer.

Went here in the mid-afternoon. There were some people sitting outside on their patio by the street, a few folks inside, and a few in their interior beer garden. Service was so-so. Got seated at a big picnic style table with one of those built in taps at the end for busy nights. Place is huge. Staff are all in ethnic costume. I got a photo of my server girl. She told me she wasn’t supposed to allow it and stepped behind a collumn to pose. Lots of breweriana and gleaming metalwork for the brewhouse and associated equipment. Food was ok, but my appetizer of pig’s ears was very greasy and all was fairly expensive. Beers were not that great although the pils wasn’t too bad. Ok to go for the experience of local micro beer craft and breweriana. Other than that there are other bars with better beer.
