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.

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!

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 didn’t 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.

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.

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...

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...

Utterly incongruous. Is this the most obscurely located world class beer cafe in the world? It is not even the largest pub in the small downmarket precinct area next to a suburban housing estate a long way down the branch line tram route in the eastern suburbs of Helsinki. But the beer selection is superb, including top Finnish micros and weird availability from all over. Royal service / advice too.
