gnoff  (544) Helsinki, Finland | March 10, 2013
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.

Elaborate,large and highly professional. Lots of changing drafts and, more importantly a pukkah range of bottled beers.

A monumental corner pub with two entrances close to Järnvägtorget’s metro station in central Helsinki. Even though it is a large pub there are smaller rooms promoting a cozy atmosphere with its terracotta coloured interior. 24 tap lines listed on a blackboard at one of the bars, half of the ales devoted to Finnish breweries The Finnish draught ales can be bought in a tasting log of four glasses each of them containing 100ml. Some of their large selection of bottled beers can be studied in a fridge that is placed on the public side of one of the main bars. Relaxing feeling on a Sunday afternoon, some people playing chess others cards. Indifferent background music. The service was rather reserved, but polite. Good red wine for Frau Eva. A little library section in one of the room where a found a nice place for my book drop (visited 27.09.2015).

troubles  (200) Tel Aviv, Israel | September 18, 2015
Huge pub with several rooms and two bars taking orders. The place was very crowded (with a line to order beers) and noisy while I visited. They have large selection and several local beers on tap but the feeling is less "craft" and more of just a local pub. They serve flights of 4 beers (free selection but only of local taps).Worth a visit but seems over-rated.

Oluthuone Kaisla is well-located right by the main train station in Helsinki. Inside it is fairly standard looking "English-style" pub one expects to see in Europa. I was mildly disappointed to begin with due to the pretty unadventurous tap list. Perhaps I visited on a bad day? The extensive bottle range seems to be the best bet here. A good selection of Scandinavian, European and American bottles were on offer. My second gripe is the lack of bottle list and due to the fairly dim lighting the challenge to choose a beer. Anyway we found a few decent ones and had a fun time. Service was a bit hit and miss, depending which server we got (one guy was great, the other women not so much). A decent spot to stop in for a beer. but there are plenty better places in town in my opinion.

Nice cozy pub in downtown Helsinki. Good selection of taps, including also domestic crafts. Bottle selection is also nice, good selections from Germany / Belgium / UK / US / Denmark, and of course, Finland. Been there twice and it’s been rather crowded both times (during the week). Definitely one of the better places in Helsinki.

Svesse  (239) Hässelby, Sweden | March 18, 2015
(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.
