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.

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 wasnít 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 pigís ears was very greasy and all was fairly expensive. Beers were not that great although the pils wasnít 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.

Visited on April 10 with FatPhil (and Anna) and SaintMatty and again on April 11 by myself, 2009. First night I ate the Hock, which fills you up nicely. Also first night I asked for the ampler tray, which wasnít available, they really pushed the BH Premium as the beer to have, so I tried that one. Also tried the Medovar from Phil and the Dunkles Extra from Matt. Second night I didnít eat, but had the four remaining beers by myself. They had some live music as well as dancing going on, not really a peaceful environment if thatís what youíre after. Oh yeah, they really tried to sell me the BH Premium again, guess because itís the most expensive one? Itís pricey and touristy, but I think still well worth it since the beers are rather nice. Service could be better though, or at least not so "selling".

This place blows. My parents were annoyed by the super kitchy german music that blares from speakers onto the street and I was not looking forward to going in the place. Prices were sky high, beer was crap. Atmosphere was crap and service was mediocre at best. Plus all beers were only in 500ml or bigger, which did not make it ideal for sampling. They had a sampler tray for about $30. You gotta be joking me! Get in and out as fast as possible is my recommendation.

too expensive, I understand itís a touristic place but this was too much. The food was good and the beer is nice. As in LAtvia they take ages to service you.

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, donít hesitate to pop in.

O, this midage style of good old europe! This wooden tables and wow-old-styled girls, who bring you one of three beer sort. Beer, that brewered just at your eyes, at the center of this pub!

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.

Bavarian scene, piped oompah music. Tourist trap prices. All the beers are unfiltered, and thus vastly more flavoursome than pretty much all other baltic lagers. Food is high quality but quite expensive. A frew years back all beer was half price during happy hour, and it then actually becomes a pretty cheap venue - however that seems to have stopped now. Sit inside the big wooden beermug for more privacy.

I was very excited about going to this vast place after reading about it,but I was disappointed by the beers and the service. The beers are mainly German styled in what is essentially a German styled beer hall. They are technically well made, but are a bit bland for my tastes and the recipes are not adventurous enough. The service is more often than not very slow and rude and the prices have the tourists in mind, and in my mind do not represent good value for money. The food is on the pricey side unless you go during one of their happy hours, but I have not tried their food yet so cannot really comment too much on it. I do not feel the staff have enough knowledge about beer which is what you would expect in a brew pub. I am not asking for them to be experts, but I would expect them to have some kind of knowledge on what they are saying. This is a tourist trap restaurant which just happens to sell beer brewed on the premises. I think it has great potential but I would like to see a bit more invention.
