(Visited Nov 2014) Quite a large beer hall, centrally located not far from the Central station. There are two entrances, with the one on Vilhonkatu leading directly to the main bar. The bar is just to the right from the entrance, after that there is a seating area, and further along there are another two large rooms with lots of seating. Service was friendly and efficient. Good selection of tap beers, around 10 from Finnish brewers (small craft brewers as well as big ones) and around 25 imports, mainly well known names of good quality. Good selection of bottled beers. Despite the volume of the place, it still gets a bit crowded on evenings, but atmosphere is friendly and nice. Shouldn’t be missed.

Large pub with a nice interior spread over a few different rooms. Plenty of Finnish, Scandinavian, Belgian and British beers to be found here. What a shame I was here with a hangover.

A nice, big pub placed as central in town as it could be. Not possible to miss and in convenient distance for the bus/train station to grab a few beers waiting for the next train or bus. Big selection of both tap and bottle, Finnish beer on tap marked clearly with a flag. Super friendly and knowable staff, at least the two times I visit this bar. Straight forward pub food as I didn’t try. First time I visit I was not aware the size of this pub, entering through the area I thought was the whole bar, surprised to find another room adjacent to another part of the pub with another bar almost like a mirror version of the first. The big list of Finish beer is great for the beer tourist, but also fun to see some exclusive bottles from Nøgne Ø among others. Definitively the best beer selection at least in inner city. Very nice ambiance as well, I really liked this spot.

Great location, widest selection in town (perhaps country) and many taps too. Staff has decent knowledge. A bit unpersonal though and quite crowded and noisy at times. Top notch place nevertheless.

Best beer pub in the city center of Helsinki. The place is huge, got two different entrances from two different streets and two different bars. The tap selection is huge (for nordic standards) and the bottle selection is top class with some big fridges you can browse yourself beside the bars. On tap you get alot of nice finnish craft beers as well as some nice international ones. The bottle selection here is impressive with some very rare bottles you won’t find many places else. Sour beers like Cantillon and some nice american craft beers that is hard to come by in the nordic countries. On my visit I had my first ever Berliner Weisse (Circus of sour from Magic Rock) and a fantastic kriek from Lindemans [Cuvee René]). Downside is the place gets very crowded cause its right next to the town square and railway station but if you come outside the busy hours you are in for a treat and even under the busy hours the place is so big you will probably find a place to sit.

Good location in the center of Helsinki by the main railwaystation.
The service wasn’t very good this time, maybe the staff had a bad day.
Great selection of beers.

I was pretty glad that my hotel was so close to this place! They have an amazing bottled selection from around the world and plenty of draft options too. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. It’s enormous, but it’s broken up into smaller segments so it doesn’t feel big. The wifi worked fine too. It’s pretty expensive, but this is Scandinavia. Can’t wait to return.

Great beer restaurant in the center of Helsinki close to the central train station. Big selection of bottled beers domestic and foreign,and some taps which don’t offer so much interesting things (at least didn’t for me). A lot of beers in bottle that I haven’t tried and have wanted to try, so I could spend a lot of time there. Prices are high, which is typical for more special beers Finland. Place is big and there was a band playing when I arrived, nice atmosphere.

Pretty large bar in central Helsinki. About 10 taps with variety of basic beers and more interesting craft beers. Bottle selection is based on Belgium and Britain, also some American and Nordic bottles. Nice.
