Large place in the old center of Tallinn. Bavarian style interior, with large wooden tables. Hoempa hoempa music on the background, medium service. Their 7 beers are ok but not top. (20 euro for the sampler) Atmosphere not the best on a Wednesday evening. Not tried the food. Ok to visit if youíre looking for some home brewed beers, otherwise there are better places in Tallinn to visit.
I have always thought that this place is German style, but here you are Austrian style. Not thatís gonna change anything. Bleak place. Massive hall filled with rough wooden chairs and tables. Umpa-umpa folk songs are playing on speakers (seems that they got only 1 record so it goes on and on). Beer is above average, so worth to visit.
PS. Headbrewer is a woman (which is not very/or at all) traditional for Estonia.
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, itís touristy and kitchy, but go with it and youíll have fun. Actually the Estonians have deep ties to Germany, so itís more authentic than people think. Service very good, prices reasonable.
A massive, cheesey spot in tthe middle of Old Town, itís tough to pretend youíre not a tourist while youíre 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.
Massive place and mostly quiet when I was there, the German theme is great, particularly with the over-the-top back section done up like a traditional German villiage where each booth is a little house. Worth popping in just for that even though the beer is not great (Theyíre dark beer seemed the best). And then thereís the pirate ship and pirate to great you as you come in. Itís silly harmless fun.
What a story of missed potential! A perfectly adequate, large, íAustrian-styleí brewpub making beers in all the right colours to an acceptable standard but none of them shine. This is the only brewpub in Estonia but seems to choose not to enthuse. Its downstairs restauarant has a pirate theme - why on earth would you do that unless you had lost the plot?
A brewpub/restaurant in the Tallinn Old Town. Modelled after Bavarian pubs with stuff sporting typical Southern Germany traditional apprell (although girls dresses seemed quite shorter). Selection mostly their own beers (which all taste a bit too similiar). Food also German-like. A place for tourists really.
