(Visited Nov 2014) Actually quite a nice airport pub. The pub itself is quite small, but there’s plenty of seating outside in the airport. Service was friendly and efficient. Can get crowded when it’s rush hour, so there can still be a queue to the bar. Selection is quite good. Of the ten taps, half of them are less interesting, but the remaining half seemed to be guest beers from good micros. Small but interesting bottle selection. Food is mainly sausages and snacks. As usual with airport pubs, however, prices are quite high. Worth a visit if you have some time to kill at Helsinki airport.

10 taps and a well selected bottled menu, about 30, some of them from Finnish micros, Fullers and Brooklyn. British look-alike, corner pub located at terminal T2, close to gate 22 and a duty free store. The “outdoor seating” was much airier and comfortable than inside. Knowledgeable service with recommendations and spontaneous offering of tasters. I ended up with a pint of Suomenlinnan Piper Wit freshly served from tap and listening to the music of Kate Bush while waiting for my plane back to Norway (visited early on a Monday, 18.08.2014).

This is actually a descent Airport Pub given the selection of beers. I only had one beer duirng my visit on a Tuesday afternoon in April 2014, a Stallhagen IPA2. (a pint cost 9.60 EUR)
The place is a bit dark and not that big, it seems to be a popular and crowded place at least during the afternoon rush at HEL Airport.
The service was friendly and fast, and yes, the bartender tried to sell me a Jägermeister. ( I don’t drink that kind of junk)

Possibly the best airport pub I have been too. Makes you feel that you’re in a pub and not at an airport. Quite decent selection to given it’s location. Got a chance a try a few more Finnish micros before I left. Friendly, but a bit pushy staff, but a quite relaxed atomsphere. Nice place to kill some time at the airport.

Pub at helsinki airport terminal 2. Irish pub style and crowded almost all the time. Basic taps, but bottles are changing and there might be something interesting

Very nice beer pub in Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. Prices are bit high. Quite good selection for small airport pub. Some Finnish micros also in tap. Regular place before take-off.

Centrally located pub in the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport Terminal 2. The beer selection is most surprisingly good for an airport pub and includes both international classics and brews from domestic small breweries, such as Stallhagen. Quite expensive even on the Finnish scale, but not particularly expensive in the airport scale. The way the staff tries to sell Schapps as a compliment to beer is plain pushy. They seem generally more interested in selling things than actually serving the customer.

The airport pub of Helsinki-Vantaa airport. For an airport- pub, a very wide selection of beers, and the only place in Finland I know that has Beamish on tap. You will not find rarities, but at least one example of every popular style. English-pub- feeling. Happy on-vacation customers. Fond memories.

Well for an airport bar, one after the security checks, this is fairly bizarre and with a very broad and interesting range (Traquair House Ale??). Not much different pricewise from Helsinki itself.

As said, this is an obvious spot for beer lover at Helsinki Airport. As bars at the airports are usually very poor, this qualifies as one of the best in the world. Yes, there is not much competition. They have 10ish taps and 20+ bottles. Decent selection, Orkney, Sierra Nevada, Fullers, Ayinger but sometimes you can get some Finnish micro on tap (Stallhagen, Teerenpeli). Bartenders usually try to sell you extra schnapps or wurts.
