Fairly big restaurant, in a very German feeling, however, not overdone like Old Hansa.
Tried the sampler tray and got almost 2 liters of beer, all for 20€. Could not finish all of them and was helped by 2 Fins who could not pass on the offer.
Friendly service, the whole place is very clean, well designed mostly of wooden furniture, seating and private table in some wood vessel-barrel.
All the beers designed by Braumeister Eve Toomela are in line with the German standards, showing no sign of infection but leaning very strongly on secular tradition without bringing anything new to the table. I’d have loved to see some kind of seasonal offering with a small twist. Going the serving order on the tray, the last 3 got my attention, wished the other ones were a bit more hop forward even by noble hops standards.
A good place to grab your tankard and have a 50cl or 1L of beer. Food look exactly like the beer, big and well prepared.
Once you leave and go down the street you can easily see the brew installation which look rather big, and given the size of the place and how crowded it can get, I can only assume they brew some decent HL per year.
Beer House is a brewpub in the style of a Bavarian bierkeller, coming with the full range of German lagers, from helles and pilsner to märzen, with the odd honey beer thrown in for good measure. True to style, the male waiters dress in lederhosen and the firm busted waitresses in low-cut Bavarian dresses. So, yes, this is a tourist trap and has little to do with Estonian culture, but it’s still worth a visit. If not for the show, then surely for the hearty portions of Bavarian-style food (I had an excellent pork knuckle with sauerkraut) and the 7 beer degustatsioon for just €20. Though not all seven beers impressed me, some of them - such as the Vana Viini vienna lager - showed that the female brewmaster Eve Toomela knows what she’s doing. Visited on 2013-06-30.
Touristy German-style bierhalel/brew-restaurant in the middle of the old town. Big place, with almost embarrasingly kitschy interior. Food ok, but not very special. Their beers are made in a bavarian style, and they offer a sampler (which is a challange to finish alone) of their brews. I wouldn’t say the beers are that tasty, and are all quite similar, but still, the place is worth a visit. The service is often slow, and you might even get ’forgotten’ in some corners (the place is big). And after eating / drinking elsewhere in Tallinn, you’ll be surprised at what they charge.
Beer house is a vast Bavarian style brewpub located close to the central square of the old town. Although I’m quite fond of Bavarian style restaurants, this place is decorated to the point that it is kitschy. This, combined with the soap-like aftertaste of the Märzen I ordered, caused me to leave the place right after finishing the first beer.
Large place in the old center of Tallinn. Bavarian style interior, with large wooden tables. Hoempa hoempa music on the background, medium service. Their 7 beers are ok but not top. (20 euro for the sampler) Atmosphere not the best on a Wednesday evening. Not tried the food. Ok to visit if you’re looking for some home brewed beers, otherwise there are better places in Tallinn to visit.
