3fourths  (1329) Boulder, Colorado | June 14, 2013
Big place with a wide selection for a first stop having just got off a plane from Lithuania. So it was a couple samples of some rather expensive draft beers from Finland, and we were given the old grumpy eyebrow by the staff who I could sense wanted us to just order and be gone. But you’re charging 5-8 euro for a pint, and there are no guarantees when you’re trying beer from a new country. So I had a couple of tasters of things I would have regretted buying a full serving of, and then I bought something else in a full serving which I did not enjoy and regretted very much. So there were pale ales and stouts and those were fine enough but the lagers seems to stink, and there was no cask ale to be had. So, impression for me are about how easy it is for me to get off a plane and drinking something enjoyable made in-country. The bottle fridge selection looked outstanding, with a lot of De Ranke and Cantillon products. Go nuts, but I just want a flavorful beer with no fermentation defects in a large serving vessel.

Rather big and spacious pub. Lots of taps, high prices, good location and quite popular. Beers well on display, good variety of beer, especially Belgian ones. Slightly expensive but otherwise pleasant place. Lots of space on Saturday afternoon. One of the best SOK chain pubs in Helsinki.

Visited on March 8, 2013. Didn’t eat, but we were a large group that stayed for most of the night drinking plenty of beers. Good service, nice staff and other visitors. Good beer selection. Kept paying with my card, no idea about prices, but I’m guessing high since Helsinki is not cheap and they had great beers. Big place and great opening hours.

Pretty good, larger than you initially think and quite full of nooks and crannies. Decent selection for a one off visit.

Large and quite busy, but still relaxed and pleasant. Very good selection of beer, especially from the US and Belgium, not so much Finnish stuff. Did like that there were blackboards with the beer menu all around the place. Nice selection on tap, but the bottle selection was quite amazing. Quite close to the city center and certainly a must visit in Helsinki.

FatPhil  (306) Tallinn, Estonia | March 13, 2007| Updated August 19, 2013
At least 10 dark beers, and 10 light beers on tap all the time. Many from Finnish craft brewers - Koskipanimo (Plevna), and Stadin. Staff who know beer. Excellent selection of bottled beers too. Peckish? Grab a toastie. Large - almost always a table free (at least in the non-smoking section).

Very friendly, great range of beers, fine mix of Finnish micros and high quality imports. This will be my first stop the next time I am in town.

Brigadier  (268) Clevelandish, Ohio | June 27, 2013
This was the best stop in Helsinki by far. Located right near the train station its selection of Finnish, Belgian, German, and American beers is extensive. The place is enormous as well with two bars - one serving mainly local taps and the other more international.

The bottle selection is among the finest I have seen. If you cannot find something to suit your palate here then don’t bother going elsewhere. Among the most outstanding gems were 3F Armand, though it did have a 66 euro price tag. However a great vintage of Boon Frambois was less than 20 if you do not want to break the bank. This is a must visit even if you only have one day in town.

A very nice and spacious bar with a good selection of draught and bottled beers. I was particularly impressed by the Huvila beers which I tried when I was there. Good Belgian bottle selection in the fridge too.
