Easy to reach place, a few steps from the Puotila (Botby gård) metro station, but looks very out of place in a small shopping center in a housing development. Good range of local beers. Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff, and the locals were the friendliest we encountered in Helsinki. Definitely worth going out of your way to try this place.

Very interesting place. The pub itself is somewhere between pub and low-grade Kneipe but what makes is quite unique in Finland is the variety of ever-changing brews. The selection is probably the best in Finland when comes to rarities. Staff knows what they’re doing. Great (best in Finland) selection of whiskeys. Definitely worth detour.

As stated by everyone, a very weird location, but an excellent selection. Just don’t get drunk and start on the unbelievable malt selection, your bank account really won’t like that...

Got some help to know what metro stop to get off and in what general direction to move, got there fairly easy. Visited end of July 2011. Doesn’t feel like a general type area for this type of pub, but that almost makesw it even better. They had 2 bottles of one special Cantillon left, so we got that one. Also had Cantillon Lou Pepe Kriek on tap, as well as two hoppy RIS. Very nice place with great service, also mainly friendly patrons. I’ll go back for sure!

Returned end of June 2012, didn’t have the special Cantillon any longer, but a very nice selection of beers on draught. We were a small group but managed to find seating inside the back room. Nice fast informative service and also got samples of beers without asking for it, just for asking what kind it was. Glad I took the time out of my other than beer schedule on this trip to go back, will try and do the same next time!

One of my must visit places when visiting Helsinki. Great beer selection, and the beers served in good condition. If you are into sours, this place has a good range of these beers. Staff friendly and helpfull, and know their stuff about beers. If you want a beery experience going to Helsinki, visit this place ;-)

Crazy place that’d you’d never think has awesome beer as its located in a run down strip mall. This is a total locals joint and if not for the Cantilon no one would know about. Taking away the Cantillon, there are several excellent beers made just for them and a crazy bottle selection. Its scattered about and hard to find, but there are gems in there. Not worth coming to Helsinki to check this place out, but if you’re there its worth the train ride to take a look.

Possibly the best bottled beer selection in the country. Excellent frequent festivals covering all different themes (This year there’s been US, Sweden, Lambic, and Plevna.) Just occasionally the staff are slow, but in my visits in early 2011 I’ve not felt unnecessarily delayed. Very hard to leave - I always just want 3 more, and then miss the metro home. Fortunately a bus leaves from just outside. Not quite the same since Marjut left.

Ok, it has the feel of a neighborhood pub full of locals. Luckily for them they have a nice beer selection but not world class. Cantillon on tap is cool but I think Mugishutei & Craftheads in Japan have way way more beers or hell tons of places in the US. Prices seemed slightly lower than the in the city center & they had a great variety on tap. Staff were friendly & knowledgeable though I had problems using a non-European credit card so watch out for that. Overall, a good bar but not world class I think. Maybe a bunch of the bottled beer selection was hidden somewhere...

must stop in helsinki> a bit hard to find but really close to a tram stop> Great selection of bottles & draft. Grassroots, lots of innish stuff I’ve never heard of but that was really good. Was able to score their house Cantillion bottle. Service was ok in the beginning but once we got talking about the business he was great> friendly atmosphere, tons of Scotch if youre also into that

If you can only go to two places in Helsinki make this one of them. Despite a 20 minute subway ride from the city center the trip was validated by a broad selection of beers from around the world. In addition to about 8 local taps there are bottles from Belgium, the United States, and other places.

Prices were in line with everywhere else in Helsinki which is to say don’t expect to find any deals. However if your timing is right you’ll find some great lambics in addition to the Finnish offerings. If that’s not enough the 400+ bottles of scotch will keep you occupied.
