A modern looking heavy metal burger bar in the centre of the city. Firstly the burgers are great and the service pretty good. The tap beer selection had some interesting beers but many average pub beers too. The wifi was solid but the heavy metal was off putting. They didnít have a beer list either so I had no idea what they had in bottles. The place could be a lot better. Itís horribly expensive too. The burgers are good but 15+ Euros? It was also 9+ Euros for 0.4l of Scandinavian ale. The going rate here is 7+ for half a litre. I would not return on a cost basis which probably explains why the place was empty on a Thursday night, when other places close by were relatively full.

My first visit to this joint was right after it was opened some years ago. I didnít consider it as a beer place but an ordinary chain restaurant with boring beer selection. After the Mikkeller Tap Takeover Iíve visited the place couple of times and there is some light at the end of the tunnel. The selection varies from modest to decent. The staff is more like food serving people and doesnít know the beers. But as I said thereís hope.

NEW: This place has improved a lot. The recent Mikkeller Tap Takeover was very nice with friendly prices and the staff knowing their way around the beers. The old voting system is apparently out, but theyíve got only four or five regular taps now with six or seven rotating ones which is really nice. Service is pretty fast now though ordering these days is preferred to be done on the counter, not in the tables.
OLD: A beer & burger joint with a twist: One of the taps is voted in at their website. A decent selection, but nothing that great. Sometimes - when Lady Luck smiles - something great gets voted in and you can have NÝgne IPA from tap with your burger, but itís rare. Slow service to the tables, friendly, but not very forthcoming or knowledgeable. Quite pricey, even by Helsinki standards. Food is decent, small portions and a bit pricey them too. (3-6-7-6-4-13)

This centrally located place started out as a "gastropub" but has now turned into a burger joint. Pretty tasty burgers and a nice selection of beers on tap, the bottle selection is quite small and the prices can be quite high, though. Modernish decor, lots of space to eat downstairs. They recently had a Mikkeller tap takeover which was extremely well received, hopefully they will continue to host events like that.

Not the greatest selection of beer, but we went here mainly because we were hungy. Fairly decent selection of beer, but nnot the most interesting one, but the burgers were very nice. Not large portions, but tasty. Convenient place a a burger and some beers, but there are plenty of beer places nearby with more interesting selections. Friendly staff.

A lively pub with a solid selection of Finnish brews. Had a dunkel and an APA from Nokia. Service was slow and few and far in between but the food was killer but expensive.

edit: Iím upping my points for this place from 68 to 74 as they had sahti (not the best, but still..) on tap, and a bunch of other non-most-popular-of-the-style- brews. Iíve been ignoring this place for a while, but will check in when Iím near now.
Beer-oriented two-story restaurant/pub in the center of Helsinki. A respectable number of taps (around 10) which mostly feature big brand beers in different styles, with one or two reserved for smaller-batch craft beers from random places. The food is quite ok, and being somewhat of a gastropub- inspired place the menu consists of things that go well with beer (burgers, nicely spiced meat of different kind). The bottle selection is limited to well-selling examples of the most popular styles. Service pretty normal restaurant quality; friendly, but donít expect any in-depth conversations.
