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.
Very cozy and spacey place with large windows to the near-by park. Service and proficiency top-notch. Very good selection of belgian and german beers on bottle and a good variety of beers on tap. Constant self importing keeps the tickers busy all year round. Many well-executed tasting and other events and a clear aim to serve the customers something exciting once in a while. A wide selection of wines and cigars too. The food is also very good with a nice range of selections to be mixed with different kind of beers. One of my haunts. Probably the best in Finland IMO.
A nice place. Large windows to see the Hämeenpuisto. Good selection of beers. Cantillon on draught. Crowded. Seems to have good kitchen. Didn,t test that myself.

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!
Open setting with big windows, one doesn’t feel cramped for space, yet the environment is cozy enough from the dark wooden furniture and features and hand scrawled chalk boards. Easy enough to talk amongst friends even with other patrons sitting nearby. The more aromatic dishes seem to permeate the entire place for a few minutes unfortunately more noticeably than most other places I’ve ever visited. A regular Cantillon tap is great and the bottle selection is quite good. There didn’t seem to be a continually updated bottle list, unfortunately. Most of the bottles are visible in the coolers, but there are others in the back and under the bar counter. It seems that some notable bottle additions are listed here: http://www.oluttampere.net/ . I didn’t try the food this my first time at Gastropub Tuulensuu. The bar staff was quite willing to provide extra glasses for bottle sharing and no one fussed about not ordering food or drinking so slowly. Large cigar humidor present. A must visit in Tampere.

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.
