Olutravintola Pikkulintu is nowhere near the centre of Helsinki, but can be accessed rather easily by the metro. Should take you around 20 minutes to make the journey there, which is well worth it. It is located within a fairly dodgy-looking building, but looks can be deceiving! Inside it has a rather nice local vibe to it. Service was friendly and attentive from the word go. They offer the most interesting tap selection of any pub in the Helsinki area, with plenty of one-offs made exclusively for the pub. Everything I drank here was pretty tasty. We didnít delve into the fridges for bottles, as we were already content. Rather good whisky selection as well. A pretty enjoyable venue all in all and well worth the trip outside of town! Not a world-class place in my opinion, but still rather good.

What looks like a fairly horrible pre-fab building hosts one of the best bars you will ever find. Selection is excellent, well worth the trip from the already excellent bars in the city centre.

21/11/14 Canít say enough good things about this place. Just about the nicest place for a craft that Iíve been in. Superbly nice and knowledgeable service, nice atmosphere, can get crowded in the evenings. Great selection. Just a world-class place and definitely a must if youíre visiting Helsinki.

07/07/12 An out of the way beer place, but probably the best one in Helsinki, maybe whole of Finland. Excellent selection, rotating taps, knowledgeable and friendly bartenders thatíll go out of their way to oblige you, if you just ask them. Will talk shop if not too busy. Value is good for a Helsinki-situated place. Ambiance is a bit lacking though. Itís a bit of a dank area, the place itself is small, filled to the brim and loud. At least on a Friday evening. Probably better during the day.

This is THE place to be in Helsinki for beer enthusiasts. The prices are low enough to make the trip worth your while even if you count the subway tickets on top of your first two beers. The selection is awesome, thereís plenty of taps and the staff know what theyíre doing (and selling). The best whiskey bar in the country too if youíre interested in that kind of thing.

You really have to get out of your way to visit this pub as it is quite a metro ride outside of Helsinki city centre (20mins). But itís well worth the visit. When you get of the metro and walk through the district you pass a brown pub and have to turn left into the alley to reach this place. When you get in itís alot smaller than you thought it would be. Reminds you abit of the local pub where strangers arenít welcome but here you are wrong! :-) It might be small but the quality of beers on tap is awesome. I am from Norway and Stavanger and they even had a Lervig on tap I havenít tasted from the brewery in my home town! Now that tells you something. Anyway alot of finnish craft beers but also some english quality crafts on tap when I visited, danish, norwegian, swedish, dutch. But if you are into single malts and whiskey, this is the place to go, over 500 different kinds and if you are lucky the whiskey expert is working. Anyway there is a small fridge with some very interesting beers in it, when I asked the bartender he didnt have a bottle menu apart from a small seasonal menu but you can have a peek at the fridge as you go for the bathroom. The seating is very limited here like 6 tables and the bar counter but when we visited on a saturday we still got a table, might be cause its along way from the city center so you gotta be a real beer geek to get here :-) Anyway the place is small but the quality of the beers (and the single malts) is more than well worth a visit! Staff is also well educated and know alot about beer and whiskey!

Now, and hear me through, this place looks like a disaster! It is located in n eastern suburb of Helsinki, a fairly long metro ride away, and you get here and you think "what the hell have I let myself into here?" You get to this one storey 1980ís dirtmall with a courtyard, a couple of run down shops, and a bar where the locals look like theyíve given up on pretty much everything, and there it is, Pikkulintu. A fine as they get craftbeer pub with an excellent selection, great statt and people from all over the World showing up. They didnít have that Cantillon I had a vague hope of tasting of course, but aside from that, I got a much better understanding of craft beer in Finland from this place than any other during my visit to Helsinki. And, as we Norwegians generally donít know much about our Nordic "cousins" (not really, but what else do I call them? our swedish brothers ex-wife?) to the east, that says a lot about the value of this place. I had a blast and some really good beers.
