3fourths  (1435) 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.

Quite limited selection of most common Finnish micros and macros. Huvila Villi Wäinö Onni is surely worth trying. Doesn’t feel like a Beer House, more like a regular bar in city centre. Unfortunately I didn’t like.

Average sort of modern place, not really my preference. Decent selection of local stuff, and at least I got some sahti here.

The pub/bar has got a very central location. The famous Kosmos restaurant is just on the other side of the road, and the Stockman department store can be found in its neighbourhood. Together with fellow ratebeerian Matti, I went here on a Sunday afternoon and had a fine range of Finnish beers, including a Sahti and the hard-to-find Everfrost, not to mention their own house beer, a porter made by the Huvila/Malmgårdin. A rather extensive list of Finnish micros is displayed on a blackboard above the bar. During our stay there were very few other guests in this open, airy and modern pub on three levels with a consistent dark brown interior. Ok service. Opens at 14:00 on Sundays (visited 06.02.2011).

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.

FatPhil  (370) Tallinn, Estonia | October 28, 2008| Updated June 20, 2015
A new place, founded in September 2008. Very central - right opposite Stockmann, off Mannerheimintie. Large place but with subdued lighting, and on multiple levels so it doesn’t feel so big. To be honest, whilst there are other pubs with wider selections of rarer stuff, if you’re coming to Helsinki, and only have time for 1 pub, this should probably be your preferred venue - it’s got a few beers by practically all of the small Finnish brewers. Seems to do weekly live music (man & guitar by the looks of it). Didn’t get a great feel for the place after just one visit, but I am sure that I’ll be there again.
Did - and it’s a great place, keep going back there when I’m in the country. Occasional small festivals for things like cider or wheat beers.

A rather modern and spacious pub which is excellent for beers from Finnish micros. They seem to rotate the beers every so often and most of the Finnish micros are represented. If you’re looking for a pub in the centre where you can get plenty of beers from Finnish micros, this is the place.

The last stop of the "Good Beer" pub crawl before going clubbing. As others have said, more a trendy modern bar, fitting well in its surroundings than a beer bar if you only look at its appearance, but it’s a big place and I didn’t mind it. The service was ok, good, even if they did try to pimp some Brandy Lonkero to the girls instead of beer. Good draught beer list and bottled too (though I ignored it for the taps). Laitilan Imperiaali Juhla Olut, Stadin Single Hop Willamette, Plevnan Petolintu, Nokian Året Runt, Lammin Sahtia (though that one was unfortunately off when I tried it, and it was from a freshly opened canister!), Prykmestar Savu, some others (including that Lonkero on the list... eeh) and, most importantly, their house beer (Huvila Villi Wäinö Onni), that’s well worth trying but, thena gain, which beer from that brewery isn’t. Overall, found it was ok and pretty much a must visit, if only after some other places.

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.
