A great place for less common Finnish beers as well as international brews. It's based in the Kamppi shopping mall and can be a bit tricky to find if you're coming from the mall but eventually you enter a huge place with plenty of seating and a long bar. They have 30 taps with a variety of around 15 beers as well as a fridge packed with some interesting bottles.
They brew on the premises as well and you can see the brewing process through a glass window at the backroom.
On the day of my visit they served their own IPA which I didn't fancy so didn't try but I did have the Siperia which was wonderful.
The service was efficient and it's worthwhile visiting even if you're only in Helsinki for a short time. Better to come early before it gets too busy though. It's obviously not the cheapest place in town but the beers all come in a choice of 3 glass sizes which will help you tick off some less known beers.

Large brewpub located in a shopping mall with a very wooden look. Unfortunately their own beers weren’t available when I visited but they had a selection of other locals on tap that they were happy to give tasters of. Friendly helpful service but a little disappointing on the tap beers.
Located in the western part of Kamppi shopping mall, just above the bus station, this place was always crowded at my visits. Large room divided in smaller by levels and small walls. Beers from their own brewery were sold out, so I had to enjoy other Finish brews, quite disapponting, brewpub without its own beer.
A rather British type of bar surprisingly placed in the basement of Kamppi shopping mall. Quite spacious with plenty of seats and a window overlooking the brewery. Decent quality of their own house beers, I specially appreciated the Saision, pretty classic. Some guest beers on tap and not too bad bottle selection as well. Honest straight forward pub food in big portions. Friendly and helpful staff. Even if it’s not the best selection of beers in town it would probably be enough to keep the beer tourist occupied some hours. Quite crowdie but no problems as there is plenty of seats and effective service. I like this please I will definitively come back.
I have no idea how I got here, but here I was. Rude, rude bouncer, shorter than me and not very muscular tried to pick a fight or something. Maybe I wasn’t the most sober person in the city, but I was calm and harmless. Barman who served us beers was arrogant dick. Can’t remember much else and why should I? Friendly staff is what I appreciate and there was non in this place.
Central location and relaxed atmosphere. Didn’t see much of their own brews, but they had a fairly interesting collection of beer both on tap and bottles. This was our first stop on out trip to Helsinki and I was happy to finaly try some Finnish IPAs.
