An old haunt of mine, before it was as profiled on craft/smaller beers. Decor has stayed pretty much the same though with loads of comics and games. Caters to a more alternate crowd as has been said by others. Knowledgeable staff who like to talk about the beers and are very nice. Not much space though and a DJ plays albums pretty loud on weekend evenings. A surprisingly varied selection on draft as well. A lot of bottles. Prices are a bit lower than in Finland in general.
Pretty good selection of bottles and some rarer taps too. The prices aren’t too bad and the comic selection makes this place a valid choice even when your friends fail you. Great pub.

Comic book themed bar in Turku. Has experienced a very nice increase in beer sortiment during the last few years, so if you visited a long time ago, give it another shot! Good sortiment including also some quite unusual ones. If you’re looking for New World beers, this is the place in Turku you’ll want to visit. Occasional live music/events on weekends. Staff knows about beer.

Big selection of very much handpicked beers (probably the most obscure selection in Turku, in a good way). Mostly good breweries only on bottle. Also has a crapload of ciders, and so far I’ve always had to leave something unrated behind me when leaving this nice place. Quite many "alternative people" around (artists, hippies, cartoonists etc). This back in 2010/2011. Score: 76.
Update 2013: Wellwellwell. Having not visited Turku more than about once a year for the last few years (due to work etc) and friends mostly moved away, I haven’t been that actively into following Turku. But During SOPP in Turku I’ve been here, and also a few other times (Weddings etc) which have given the possibility to go around. It seems most of the places around in 2009-2011 or so have been standing on the same level. CCC not so. This bar has gone into a very nice and cosy pub with easily the best selection of beers in Turku (Old Bank still close second, although gone downhill). Lots of specials from importers and focus on good beers. This used to be the place for cartoon freaks (still is), and apart from that it seems to be a bit hipstery looking at the customers, but also very welcoming to anybody interested in beers. When visiting, just ask for Sakke, he usually has some good stuff to recommend (he might recently have gotten some goodies, not on the shelves yet).
Note: 70 bottles is beer, they have about 25 ciders too. This is one of the best bars in Turku now. They have comic book -theme and thanks for this it is popular among the hippies, students, nerds and musicians :) Bottled selection has some interesting beers like ones from Haandryggeriet, BrewDog, Victory and O’Haras. If you click "Juomat" on their website you can see the latest listing. Staff seems beer-knowing.
