I was on a pub crawl at my last visit to Helsinki and jump into this pub. It seemed to be very popular. It was crowded already an early Wednesday evening. I asked the female bartender for a special beer and she recommended a “salty caramel stout”. Very special indeed, but I didn’t like it, too salty. Nice atmosphere. Friendly... More

An excellent stop-over any day and night. If you are looking for a good pint, or any size of beer downtown, this is the place for you. Very good selection of local+international craft beers. Fast service with no extra questions nor small talk by the employees.

To end a day walking and exploring Helsinki, we ended up in Kaisla for some local beer. The atmosphere is vibrant without being to noisy. The bartenders where able to do great recommendations fitting our described taste.

Great range of local beers on tap as well as international. Friendly and knowledgeable barkeepers. Place to play a game or cards.

Looks cozy but is actually quite large with several rooms. Nice lights but kitsch and cheaply renovated. Huge selection but very expensive. The only cider on tap was Thatchers and only in 0.4 (no pints). Expensive.

The bar is in a really convenient location, with friendly service and excellent beer. They offer flights of Finnish beer, which offered the chance to try a few local beers.

It's a beer house, with lots of different draft and bottle beers, so I absolutely recommend it. Prices are normal for Helsinki, probably quite high for tourists. It's located in the city centre, very close to the railway station. The local is quite big, so is perfect for big groups well, and they admit table reservations. They also serve some... More
