A great place for Belgian beers! And, they have more than 150 bottles! Good service and the staff know their beers. Quite crowded, but the man who served me had time to chat about beers and give recommendations. He showed me an impressive list of beers from Poland, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia an Hungary, their latest private import from Eastern Europe. Beers from Hungary are not common to find in the Nordic countries. I later asked for more Finnish craft beer and I was recommended their sister pub, Gastropub Nordic. (Visited June 27th 2014)
Popular, crowded and loud pub (at least on weekends). Very nice selection of interesting and hard-to-find beers. Bottles well on display.

What the other guys said! Rating the food purely on the aroma from neighbouring tables - a garlic-lover’s haven, I’m sure. Seems to have changing additional themes to the beer list, rareties and plenty of classics. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute I was there, and gutted that I had to leave Tampere before opening time the next day. Easy to find - head down Hameenkatu away from the train station until you get to the Hameenpuisto esplanade, then hang a right. 2 blocks and it’s on the right.
Rerate: uprate - nosh good, beers fantastic - I love this place!

They claim to have 60 different Belgium beers. Also lots of cigars available. I didn’t eat so can’t rate it.
Update: Rotating selection of beers, thet usually have own imports from Belgium, Holland, Germany etc. Cantillon is regular on tap. Propably #1 beer place in Tampere. Nice quiet dining type bar.
Edit. nowadays one of my favourite beer bars in Finland. Lots of rarities and super service.
Very nice place. The selection varies a bit, but usually they have lots of beers (own imported Belgians, Polish or German beers) as well as "their" standard Belgians. Usually you can find a place to sit, and the service has been extremely good every time I’ve been there, so staff knows what they serve. The food is maybe a bit on the expensive side, but then again it’s very good as well. The place does get very crowded in the evenings (especially weekends), so if you’re in for beer rating or enjoying lambics, I recommend you go there quite early. Apart from Beer Hunters in Pori, this is my favourite place to drink in Finland.
Probably the best import-beer place in Finland. The selection is quite nice, even somewhat respectable in international standards. But only assuming you are into belgians. Or polish mead, which suits me just perfectly. It is primarily a bar, but they have a food menu that goes beyond the normal bar munch. Wooden tables, mellow mood. Just a nice place to scroll through some tennish pages of beers they sell, trying to pick one that fits the moment.
Located near the central Tampere, Gastropub Tuulensuu offers perhaps the best Belgian beer selection in Finland. Lots of own imports in addition of other beers. Selection contains a lot of rare and hard to find bottles and taps even from smaller Belgian breweries. Beer is quite reasonably priced, as is the amazing food. All in all, if you are are a Belgian beer fan, this place is a must visit.
My favorite place in Tampere. Fantastic selection of beers, mainly belgian beers. Service is good and professional. Food is also very tasty. Must place to visit if you are in Tampere. Might be crowded in evenings.
One the top 3 beer bars in Finland. Wide selection of Belgian and German beers. Few taps, but two fridges full of bottles, which you can admire and look what you want. Have been among the top 50 restaurants in Finland and pairs food with beer. Service has sometimes been rude and the place is quite small due to the size of the dining side.
