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.

Not very far from the metro station, small and cozy bar with nice environment. However it’s a pity it’s alone in a residential neighbourhood. Very good selection of beers taking into account its size. Wide selection of whiskies.

Best place in Helsinki. Really nice service and good advises about beers. Also impressive selection of whiskeys.

As others have said, it’s a little far out and in a residential area. It’s definitely worth visiting, so as some additional advise, when you’re getting off the metro, continue walking up the platform along with the train (ie. away from Helsinki center). From this side you can walk straight out from up the stairs and continue down a small path until you find it.
Great bar with some fantastic beers. Worth it if only to try the Siperia’s, but you’ll find more.. :-)

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.

The most weird location, but huge selection of good beer. Of course I recommend Pikkulinnun Viskilambic and Siperia Imperial Stout

Visited in July 2010.
Really bizarre to find a place like Olutravintola Pikkulintu in the middle of a not too exciting residential neighborhood. It is truly a magnificent place, not pretty but what a range of beer and whiskey.
About 15-20 minutes with Metro from central Helsinki. Get off the train at Puotila/Botby gård. Then walk about 4 minutes to the bar.
Very friendly staff and locals. I did drink Cantillon Pikkulinnun Viskilambic, Slottskällans Nelson and Plevnan Siperia Imperial Stout during my visit. It’s amazing that you can find an extremely rare Cantillon, at a place like Pikkulintu.
(Cantillon Pikkulinnun Viskilambic did cost 14 EUR for a bottle 37,5cl)

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.

Possibly as far away from central Helsinki as you can be while still being in Helsinki, very close to a metro station though, so that poses no issue at all! And to think that I would’ve missed it because of the distance if SaintMatty hadn’t offered to take me along (and a huge, huge thanks for that!). A relatively small place, almost full of locals drinking good or great beer, but the selection is just stunning, rare and quality Finnish and foreign beers on tap (we had Hornbeer RIS, Moor JJJ IPA and some rare Kuninkaankartanon stuff on tap and the Hornbeer Oak Aged Cranberry Bastard in bottles). And they have Siperia and Severin which are probably among top 5 Finnish beers on tap. Huge selection of bottles, a shitload of Belgian, Danish and American stuff. Ah, just go there.
