Pretty low ratings for this place, but Iím not sure why. We visited when the lunch buffet was in full swing, pretty decent food. Large selection for a brewpub - a bunch of their own beers and ciders on a total of 15 taps, plus a few odds and ends from other breweries, and some macro stuff. Overall, worth a visit.

Quite big place, so it could be very crowded or almost empty. Some Bruuveri/Saimaa brews on tap. Itís changing time to time, so sometimes the selection is rather good, sometimes not. Anyhow itís good place to get the Bruuveri brews. Itís also expensive and the service is not so good, sometimes even rude.

Visited end of July 2011. Nice big place, very good service. The bartender agreed to let me have all 9 current self made beers in small samplers instead of buying them as half pints. Didnít eat here, but could go back only for the beers too, none of them bad and a few really nice ones.
Visited again late June 2012. Got 7 samples of their own beers when explaining how I wanted to try many beers, also bought their imperial stout on bottle. Ate the sausage and potatoes basket which was nice. We were a big group but got seated nicely. Good place!
Visited yet again in March 2013. Ate the bratwurst and chorizo with bacon sauerkraut, decent food. Tried one of their brand news beers, an American hopped up Weizen. Big place that gets fairly crowded. Nice service. Pretty expensive though. Got a little smokers corner near one of the entrances if thatís your thing.

The brewpub has a half-moon shape and was quite well attended when I drop in with fellow ratebeerian Matti about five on a Sunday afternoon. I had a couple of their own ales, both being quite bitter and to my liking. Rather good range of beers, so this is a place that needs to be revisited sometime. Nothing special with neither service nor atmosphere. Most easily accessible directly in from Fredrikinkatu. The ratebeer map does not quite match the terrain (pub crawl in Helsinki, 06.02.2011).

Listed as a brewpub, but do they really brew here? To be fair they only claim the stout as their own (although it also seemed to appear as Saimaan Stout at Helsinki Beer Festival). The rest of the "brewpub" beers are Saimaan brews (same ownership) - 5 on my visits, so this is an essential Helsinki stop if you havenít had those before. Guest tap was Ayinger Winter Bock. Some imported bottles, including Daleside from the UK. Itís a cavernous place in a basement (from one side at least) built into the Kamppi complex. Although modern, they have gone for an old, woody look in the decor and fitting that works OK. Iím guessing that this place is aimed at a noisy younger crowd in the evenings but I only visited at quiet times in the afternoon so I canít really say. Itís certainly not a beer geek type of place. The big screen showing continuous videos (but without the accompanying sound when I was there - the soft rock backround music in the pub was unrelated to the videos) is an irritation so I positioned myself where I couldnít see it (difficult). The service was fine in so far as going up to a bar and being poured a drink promptly can be. And the staff didnít laugh too much at my attempts at Finnish pronunciation. Didnít eat.

Average little place in a shopping centre. Prices were stupid for their own stuff (9 euros for a 500ml of porter?)

Old out-of-date review: Canít really add much to what others have said. Occasional gigs, including musicians like Mika Jšrvinen, and Jukka Tolonen.
New review: Lively bustling atmosphere on amateurs nights. More self-brewed and Saimaa beers than before, which themselves are better than before. I go here quite regularly now. Expensive.

Central location and relaxed atmosphere. Didnít see much of their own brews, but they had a fairly interesting collection of beer both on tap and bottles. This was our first stop on out trip to Helsinki and I was happy to finaly try some Finnish IPAs.

This is a brewpub, but more like brewing their own beer, it is a house tap for Saimaan Olut. Place to find rare Bruuveri beers, not much else. Just for a beer, I prefer in Kamppi Rotterdam next to it.

Not a bad place to sample beers from Bruuveri, but owing to the fact that the place is underground at the base of a shopping centre/bus station, I find it can get a bit depressing at times. Having said that, they usually have plenty of beers on tap and a reasonable selection of bottled beers. Itís handy to drink here when youíre waiting for a bus.
