Walked past this place several times, it really doesn’t look much from the outside. But once you are inside the place opens up nicely with a small and cosy bar from which you can admire the shiny copper brewing kit. Downstairs is an expansive restaurant. There are at least 4 or 5 fridges dotted about the place, well stocked with Finnish mircros, and another is dedicated to Estonian micros. There are probably north of 100 bottles on offer. There is also a bottle shop (closes at 9) which sells the house beers below 4.7% for takeaway. 10 dcl samples are available from the taps and the very helpful barman also poured me some 10dcl samples from their stronger house beers in bottle. All served up on a flight with a printed deScription of each beer - most impressive. Liked this place enough to come back for dinner, the food was very good, although top end for a pub not for fine dining. Really enjoyed this place and could have come here 5 or 6 times before exhausting all the beers on offer. Judging places on 1 or 2 visits is always a little dicey but for me this place pisses over Pikkalintu.
Nice modern brewpub with well-above-average beers and well-above-average food. Just off the waterfront in the central area. Bar at ground level, with an outside area too, large restaurant and bar downstairs. Good range of Finnish beers in the non-brewpub list.
Straight ahead from the Cathedral and into the pedestrian street leading down to the habour, you’ll find this welcoming brewpub on the right hand side. A cozy little bar room and a beer garden upstairs and a larger bar and restaurant downstairs with the brewery plant covering both floors. Four of their own beers and four guest ales on tap lines in addition to a list of about 30 bottled beers from Finnish breweries. Beer samples in different sizes, 100ml and 200ml, are available, not only from the taps but also from their own bottled beers. A small room at the entrance with merchandises like brewpub t-shirts and a few bottles. Very tasty bar food, we had cheese salad together with warm and salty pretzels. Brick outlook with old Helsinki photos on the walls. Friendly and knowledgeable service, English and Swedish speaking. Just a pity about the boring Spotify (?) music. An informal, clean, relaxing and likable brewpub (visited twice with Frau Eva in late September 2015).
Nice brewpub near market square in the tourist area. Selection includes the brewery beers and few other local beers. The have flights of 5 beers (either 100ml or 200ml) you select from tap and sell some of the bottles to take away. Overall nice place and worth a visit.
Bryggeri Helsinki is well-located down by the waterfront in Helsinki. It is a rather new and modern 2-floor brewpub with a decent-sized courtyard area for al-fresco beer drinking. We sat upstairs which has more of a cafe vibe than downstairs which is more a restaurant-bar. The brewkit takes pride of place in the centre of the bar. They had 12 or so draught beers on offer between the 2 floors. I found the house beers to be rather tame all in all. They had around 30 guests bottles including a few edgier brews. Prices seemed pretty good for Helsinki, but perhaps I was drunk by this point. I wouldn’t make this a priority per se, but it did make for a decent lunch-time stop.
Very close to one of the Helsinki harbours. Narrow alley leading to some big white house. Some may call it cathedral. Row of taps, not too many, but number doesn’t matter. Upstairs might get crowded, but beer garden and downstairs got more than enough space for even large groups. Prices are Finnish prices so suck it. Staff every way friendly and helpful. Worth a visit.
(Visited Nov 2014) Nice brewpub centrally located in Helsinki. Fairly small and cosy street level pub, with seating areas by the entrance and on the other side of the bar. Bigger restaurant in the basement. Service was friendly and efficient. They had eight beers on tap, four of their own and four from other Finnish craft breweries. Bottle selection wasn’t very big, but interesting and well chosen. I tried the food from the pub menu and it was quite nice. The restaurant food looked a bit fancier, but really good. Definitely worth a visit.
My friend I was visiting took me here and it was nice. First I got my hands on the elusive Sahti and afterwards I tried their porter. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Did get approached by people wanting to practice their English while we were trying to have a serious conversation though.
A nice brewpub located central in Town. The pub itself is rather small and can get really crowdie as it seems to be popular. The restaurant downstairs is a lot bigger but unfortunately for my visit so popular that I was not able to get a table at all. But there is a possibility to grab some lighter snacks at the bar and this food was of such high quality that I really want to try the restaurant next time. The beer is decent and the selection of guest beers and bottle beer is great, probably amoung the best in town. Very friendly staff and I was lucky enough to get a sample of Sahti served from a plastic container. Lots of other Finish microbrews available make this spot a natural place to visit for the beer tourist, just remember to book a table in advance!
