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

Visited in July 2010. Modern place with a good central location. Mostly Finnish beers but there were also some others. During the visit I drank Huvila Pale Ale and Huvila Villi Wäinö Onni.

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.

After beiing at Pikkulinto it is hard too compeat. This place has a few finnish micros but the ones I tried were not so god as the ones at Pikkulinto. The selection was not as big either. It still is not a bad place to be but... having been in a realy good place I was having a hard time finding the selection or the quality they had at Pikkulinto. The place didn’t have that much people (sunday at 6 pm) and was modern and trendy more than a friendly beer bar.

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.

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.

Located very central, not far from anything. Clean and nice terrace summertime. Decent selection from Finnish micros at most times. Friendly staff. Haven’t tried the food here yet, but will do at some point.

Located in central helsinki and is very easy to find. Place is typical modern finnish style with lots of wood and concrete mixed togheter. They have a really good selection of finnish beers here which makes it the no 1 pub in central helsinki if you’re looking for finnish qualitybeer. They also have about 30-40 beers on bottle and among them some really nice stuff from finland, germany and belgium. This place can be a bit loud at times but i’ll be coming back here for sure.
