Best place for craft beer in Helsinki. Very nice ambiance, friendly and knowledgable staff and lots of finnish micros. Unfortunately, the Lammin Sahti was out. The Reindeer jerky and the smoked elk is absolutely amazing!!!

Went here across the street after a superb dinner at Kosmos Resto. It was a mild, cloudy night with intermitant light rain and they had some people sitting outside on the patio. Inside was Steve the bartender who was very knowledgeable, helpful, and nice to talk to. Old oak floors and a nice oak bar. Brass foot rest and draft towers. They had large chalkboards on the walls with their beer list which seemed to be very weighted towards Finland - just what I was looking for! My first brew was a Finnish cask conditioned bitter, the second, a Finnish traditional ale, Sahti, and the third a strong stout, all were draft and microbrewed. They also have a closed off lower bar area which I had to go thru to get to the head.

The best place in downtown for Finnish micros, with very friendly and helpful staff. Large venue as is common for central Helsinki

Nice modern place. We went there on an exploratory tour of beerplaces in Helsinki. Had Sahti, which was nice, but also a good beer brewed specially for the place. A recomendation for beerlovers

Thanks Matti, Fatphil and Ana to take me there and make me to choose some good beers. the bar was quite empty, but my companies tell everything! I enjoyed as much as the place could be open until move to other bar. The selection is ok, actually for me, everything was new. bar tender ok, no food. I recommend this bar.

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.
