Small pub, part of the oluthuone- chain, a bit off from the city center, but near the Helsinki amusement park. I find this place has a great old, hobbit-tavern- like, atmosphere due to its size and interior. It does get crowded though, and the selection is only somewhat better than the standard oluthuone- menu (a cask tap). Bar snacks probably available, haven’t tried. On a summer bar crawl, I would head here before or after getting an adrenalin-kick in the amusement park, and continuing towards either Töölö or kurvi.

Small and usually crowded pub. Always out of Real Ale. Example of not so good SOK chain place.

An atmospheric place of the smaller type. Warm lighting and lots of earthtones present. Service is friendly and professional. The selection is surprisingly good, especially trappist-wise, if not a bit pricey. Recommended.

Friendly service and well poured beer. a bit expesive maybe, but nowadays the special beers cost a lot in any place. quite small and always when I go there there’s a lot of people, but good atmosphere.

Quiet, relaxed place. Almost always one English cask real ale, always served well, which is why I go there occasionally. A little bit remote, but right on a couple of tram routes, so easy to get to. Pleasant friendly staff.

A decent selection of Belgians. A bit smoky. Quite basic but ok.

AVOID THIS PLACE. SERVICE HAS TURNED TO BE THE LOUSIEST IN THE CITY!! Really. Place is owned by S group which is trying to create some kind of real beer cafe image but I have never experienced so bad service! Useful selection of trappists, for example Achel served here. Bavaria has succeeded in marketing LaTrappe on the tap here... sadly... The name means a "Black-throated Diver" and it was given in order to be a counter attack against the beer pubs named according to the fishes in Helsinki. A diver eats fish. Last time I visited here service was lousiest ever: they had run out of 5 beers on the list, not marked and those happened to be the ones I ordered! The waiter was "just working here" as he explained. They had white beer weeks going on, beers marked on a specific list, but they had run out of most of beers and not marked it on the list!! Finally Rochefort 8 was serviced in a tulip glass because the waiter had never served a beer!! It was my first trappist in a long tulip glass in 20 years...
