Big place with a wide selection for a first stop having just got off a plane from Lithuania. So it was a couple samples of some rather expensive draft beers from Finland, and we were given the old grumpy eyebrow by the staff who I could sense wanted us to just order and be gone. But you’re charging 5-8 euro for a pint, and there are no guarantees when you’re trying beer from a new country. So I had a couple of tasters of things I would have regretted buying a full serving of, and then I bought something else in a full serving which I did not enjoy and regretted very much. So there were pale ales and stouts and those were fine enough but the lagers seems to stink, and there was no cask ale to be had. So, impression for me are about how easy it is for me to get off a plane and drinking something enjoyable made in-country. The bottle fridge selection looked outstanding, with a lot of De Ranke and Cantillon products. Go nuts, but I just want a flavorful beer with no fermentation defects in a large serving vessel.

A monumental corner pub with two entrances close to Järnvägtorget’s metro station in central Helsinki. Even though it is a large pub there are smaller rooms promoting a cozy atmosphere with its terracotta coloured interior. 24 tap lines listed on a blackboard at one of the bars, half of the ales devoted to Finnish breweries The Finnish draught ales can be bought in a tasting log of four glasses each of them containing 100ml. Some of their large selection of bottled beers can be studied in a fridge that is placed on the public side of one of the main bars. Relaxing feeling on a Sunday afternoon, some people playing chess others cards. Indifferent background music. The service was rather reserved, but polite. Good red wine for Frau Eva. A little library section in one of the room where a found a nice place for my book drop (visited 27.09.2015).

Rather big and spacious pub. Lots of taps, high prices, good location and quite popular. Beers well on display, good variety of beer, especially Belgian ones. Slightly expensive but otherwise pleasant place. Lots of space on Saturday afternoon. One of the best SOK chain pubs in Helsinki.

Located a 5 min walk from the railway station, this was my first bar at my recent visit to Helsinki. What looked like a small intimate bar at first, is a huge multiroom pub, with 2 seperate bars and entries. Cosy athmosphere with small tables, music at reasonable volume, laid back, rather dark interior. Tap selection was more than good enough for me, and the bottle selection was huge, 3 large fridges inside, showcasing Belgian, US, UK beers along with some Soumi beers. Service was not at its best, even for Helsinki.

Oluthuone Kaisla is well-located right by the main train station in Helsinki. Inside it is fairly standard looking "English-style" pub one expects to see in Europa. I was mildly disappointed to begin with due to the pretty unadventurous tap list. Perhaps I visited on a bad day? The extensive bottle range seems to be the best bet here. A good selection of Scandinavian, European and American bottles were on offer. My second gripe is the lack of bottle list and due to the fairly dim lighting the challenge to choose a beer. Anyway we found a few decent ones and had a fun time. Service was a bit hit and miss, depending which server we got (one guy was great, the other women not so much). A decent spot to stop in for a beer. but there are plenty better places in town in my opinion.

Visited on March 8, 2013. Didn’t eat, but we were a large group that stayed for most of the night drinking plenty of beers. Good service, nice staff and other visitors. Good beer selection. Kept paying with my card, no idea about prices, but I’m guessing high since Helsinki is not cheap and they had great beers. Big place and great opening hours.

At least 10 dark beers, and 10 light beers on tap all the time. Many from Finnish craft brewers - Koskipanimo (Plevna), and Stadin. Staff who know beer. Excellent selection of bottled beers too. Peckish? Grab a toastie. Large - almost always a table free (at least in the non-smoking section).

The is a wonderful beer pub situated east of the main train station. With exposed brickwork and sienna-coloured walls, it has more of a restaurant or café-like atmosphere. Service is swift, helpful and Anglophone-friendly (as are the vast majority of Helsinki pubs). Focussing on Finnish as well as bigger name internationals, the tap selection is OK. The bottle fridge is more overwhelming, with more of a UK, US, German and Belgian tilt. They do taster flights of four 1dl beers (Finnish only) for 9.50 €. Two of the four I initially asked for were not available, but that’s only the tiniest of annoyances. A good place to drink, bordering on a destination in the city.

Large and quite busy, but still relaxed and pleasant. Very good selection of beer, especially from the US and Belgium, not so much Finnish stuff. Did like that there were blackboards with the beer menu all around the place. Nice selection on tap, but the bottle selection was quite amazing. Quite close to the city center and certainly a must visit in Helsinki.

A bit of a fancy looking place that was really busy when we passed by. I just had time for a quick drink so didn’t really interact with the staff who seemed busy serving a constant stream of customers. An overwhelming list of beers up along the wall made it tough to choose what to order but I had a decent finnish beer at average prices for Helsinki. Great central location make it a must visit for our of towners but for those of us with regular access to Belgian beers it isn’t so amazingly special I think. Nice bar though.
