Best place for craft beer in Helsinki. Very nice ambiance, friendly and knowledgable staff and lots of finnish micros. Unfortunately, the Lammin Sahti was out. The Reindeer jerky and the smoked elk is absolutely amazing!!!

Went here across the street after a superb dinner at Kosmos Resto. It was a mild, cloudy night with intermitant light rain and they had some people sitting outside on the patio. Inside was Steve the bartender who was very knowledgeable, helpful, and nice to talk to. Old oak floors and a nice oak bar. Brass foot rest and draft towers. They had large chalkboards on the walls with their beer list which seemed to be very weighted towards Finland - just what I was looking for! My first brew was a Finnish cask conditioned bitter, the second, a Finnish traditional ale, Sahti, and the third a strong stout, all were draft and microbrewed. They also have a closed off lower bar area which I had to go thru to get to the head.

Led on a pub crawl by FatPhil, this is the only one I’m rating as it was my favorite. 10-12 beers on tap, including a tasty sahti, plus another 50 or so Finnish beers in the bottle. Had some tasty moose meat and caribou jerky snacks. Very fun.

Nice modern place. We went there on an exploratory tour of beerplaces in Helsinki. Had Sahti, which was nice, but also a good beer brewed specially for the place. A recomendation for beerlovers

Large place, cozy bar area with large windows overlooking the sea of people. Taplist was entirely Finnish, and both tap and bottles included ciders, perries and meads. Solid service. Good place.
