Led on a pub crawl by FatPhil, this is the only one I’m rating as it was my favorite. 10-12 beers on tap, including a tasty sahti, plus another 50 or so Finnish beers in the bottle. Had some tasty moose meat and caribou jerky snacks. Very fun.

Looks like a huge place in the very center of the town. Just across the Ölhus Kobenhaven. Absolutely packed on saturday evening. We managed to find an edge of the table and slowly claimed the area. Staff was helpful and quick with service. Worth a visit.

First Finnish bar of our brief trip in Helsinki. Fairly spacious place with interesting tables, benches and general decor. Draught is mainly Finnish (apart from Sori, but then that’s two Finnish guys in Estonia). Varied selection covering all bases (I had a nice Baltic porter, pale ale & IPA) as well as around TEN (!) Finnish ciders / perries. Staff were helpful & knew all the beers well. Close to the main shopping areas. In all, well worth a stop off.

troubles  (227) Tel Aviv, Israel | September 18, 2015
Visited on Sat around noon, place was mostly empty. It has a sitting area outside and two floors inside. Selection is nice, have Sahti and all tap beers are local. Location is good, around city center which makes it a good place to stop during shopping. Worth a visit.

A huge bar in the centre of town. Somewhat open plan and needs to be full before it would seem cosy. Decent selection of local beers and good service. Wifi works fine. A little pricey if I’m honest but not overly expensive. Had to move when a couple of drunks with their own particular odour came in. The doorman should have done his job there I feel. I’d return but it’s nowhere near the top in my list of favourite Helsinki bars.

Central location and decent selection of Finnish beer. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Easy to find in the city center and well worth a visit.

3fourths  (1527) Boulder, Colorado | June 11, 2013
Centrally located high-ceilinged interior. About a dozen drafts with a number of bottles on the menu. A lot of Americanized Suomi beer available. I was happy enough to find a bottle-conditioned pilsner of excellent quality. Prices are some of the highest in the world for beer, but that’s known before you ever travel to Helsinki.

Erasmus_ro  (200) Alabama | March 23, 2013| Updated November 24, 2014
Located centrally smack in the middle of Helsinki and concentrated on Finnish craft beer with decent prices, it’s a pretty nice place to visit. Can be pretty packed on the weekends. Nice enough ambiance and fairly knowledgeable service with - well, not always a smile, but with at least a friendly attitude.

jookos  (126) , Finland | March 5, 2013
Located pretty much in the heart of Helsinki, this large-ish three-floor pub specializes in Finnish craft beer. It is located in a neighborhood that has a lot of late-night party places, so it can be quite packed on evenings and weekends. Decent selection of Finnish brews, basic pub snacks (with a Finnish twist) food-wise.

DruncanVeasey  (31) NUNEATON, England | November 8, 2012| Updated December 7, 2012
Visited when it was -30c out. Warm and they had sahti, from a plastic flagon. And beer. Lots of it. On chalkboards, all Finnish. Pretend to be confused and English and you’ll get £20 worth in samplers before you’ve even started. Not cheap but part of the charm of Helsinki is being fleeced relentlessly, all day, every day. Isn’t it? Sheep’s skulls, clean lines, ambient light. Didn’t eat because I was still living off the 2 day-old toasted cheese and salmon sandwich in Octo’s rucksack. Will pop back for smoked elk one day. Liked it here.
