Visited for the first time on a Tuesday afternoon in October 2013.
This place is centrally located in Helsinki, close to almost everything. The service was friendly and fast despite quite a few other customers.
I only had a couple of beers, both were from Finland. I will visit this large but still cosy place when visiting Helsinki next time.

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.
Stopped into Kaisla with a few hours to kill before catching a train. Good draft selection, but an excellent bottle selection. Everything is ordered from the bar, but they will bring stuff to your table. Bartender was very quick and friendly. We had the waffle fries, which were great. The place was pretty empty (it was an early wednesday afternoon) but a very comfortable place to sit and relax and have a chat.
Gran lloc, espai molt gran, 37 tiradors i 200 referències. El preu car com tot el que és alcohol a Finlàndia. La selecció seccional, americanes, daneses, cantillons, 3 fontaines, etc... Com a casa!
El front man un bon “beer conesieur”. 100% recomenable.
Thanks Petri I spend a really good time at your local!
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.
A great beer bar not far from Helsinki central station. With some 22 taps (as far as I could count) and a large selection on bottle - ranging from US micros to Belgian sour ales - you’ll be able to fill the evening with great beer. My one concern is the limited range of Finnish micros. Visited 2013-07-12.
This was the best stop in Helsinki by far. Located right near the train station its selection of Finnish, Belgian, German, and American beers is extensive. The place is enormous as well with two bars - one serving mainly local taps and the other more international.
The bottle selection is among the finest I have seen. If you cannot find something to suit your palate here then don’t bother going elsewhere. Among the most outstanding gems were 3F Armand, though it did have a 66 euro price tag. However a great vintage of Boon Frambois was less than 20 if you do not want to break the bank. This is a must visit even if you only have one day in town.
