Quite nice interior. Touristy place but the beer was decent enough and the service was quite okay. A bit touristy and impersonal, but still worth a visit.

sicuramente un ambiente divertente in compagnia, forse troppo caotico per bere con calma. musica alta e balli folk ma un sacco di gente

Some home brewed beers, unfortunately not very impressive... Very loud Polka music the night I was there. A bit unattentive staff, we didnt stay to long

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.

On a street right off of the Raekoja plats (Town Hall Square). Huge place, decorated completely in some Bavarian/German style (but couldnít shake the feeling that they were just trying too hard), waiters dressed ,as the others have said, to match too. The music is really funny too. The three of us didnít eat (having been filled up by the pancakes at the Kompressor which is quite close) but after one finally arrived, we ordered the sampler (they didnít try to sell us BH Premium so I guess someone told them to cut it out). Amazing how many varieties on a theme they pulled off and they donít even taste all that different (apart from the nice Dunkles Extra). Too expensive (more akin to Finnish prices than it has any right to be) but hey, itís the only brewpub in town and youíll want to visit it for that. And if I remember correctly, you get to steal wifi from across the street.
