I loved this place, this bring me back the Brazilian Oktoberfest, with German music versions, Bavarian style, the whole place is cool. I ask for the 7 sampler beers which comes in 7 glass with 7 different beer at 20 Euro. Not cheap, but worth than miss it. Also they have Chiffon and bottles to take to home. The food was amazing, delicious. I was there at Happy hour time and believe it is between 12:00 to 14:00 and I got a nice discount for that. I recommend a lot to go to this place harder if you never been at a Bavarian Brewery or Fest.
The inside garden with a huge wooden horse with and even bigger wooden penis is awsome. The service is good, there are quite many beers that are available all the time. Many hang-over mornings have been spent at this place.
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.
We only had a day in Talinn on our cruise, and we ate lunch here. Was surprised they had 1L beers, awesome! Tasted pretty good too, as I recall. Yeah, it’s touristy and kitchy, but go with it and you’ll have fun. Actually the Estonians have deep ties to Germany, so it’s more authentic than people think. Service very good, prices reasonable.
Beer House is located in the old town of Tallinn. In May 2008, this German style large brewpub offered 7 house beers. Even though the brewers could use a bit more imagination considering the beer styles they brew, the quality of the products is above average among Estonian breweries. I found the way some waiters/waitresses have dressed a bit corny but, if the traditional German style is preferred, who am I to disagree :-) I have visited the place twice and on both occasions the food was good. I recall that during my first visit in Summer of 2005 the service was pretty rough but this year it was much better - in fact the waiters were very friendly. Beer House is a touristic place but, unfortunately, there is no competition in this field in Tallinn. So if you happen to be around, don’t hesitate to pop in.
A massive, cheesey spot in tthe middle of Old Town, it’s tough to pretend you’re not a tourist while you’re in this place. Having said that, the beer really is pretty damn good. A very fresh and zesty pilsner, an appropriately dark and malty dunkel and a lovely assortment in between makes it worth a stop. Try to get there early to avoid the worst of the touristy vibe (or embrace it and just have a good time). The beer is very expensive - even for Old Town (20 Euro for a sampler?!) but you may want a reprieve from the typical and ubiquitous Estonian lager.
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.
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.
