Tears Apart playing live on Friday!

Tears Apart will be playing live on our Magners Stage on Friday, 31st of October!

Tears Apart plays emotional soul music. The body of the band’s expression lays on 60’s – 70’s soul, but the branches are into modern electroacoustic pop. The debut album (released 4.4.2014) is a collection of original songs, where each song makes a unique atmosphere from strong emotion to smooth floating. For the love of music!

Coyet Ale is back on tap!

From Suomenlinnan Panimo , The Suomenlinna Brewery, which is located just a few steps away from the ferry, in a pink barracks that was built under Czars reign between years 1868-1870 in Helsinki, we get Coyet Ale on tap.

Coyet Ale has been named after the famous warrior, Henrik Gideon Coyet (1725-1774). He spent his last years at the Suomenlinna (Castle of Finland) building site and the commander of the stronghold named part of the fortress after him. In their time all of the beers made were top fermented ales and this excellent ale follows in that tradition.

Tin Soldier's Black cider has arrived

New bottle cider from Suomenlinna Brewery has landed on our shelves!

Tin Soldier’s Black, at 7,5 % ABV, is an interesting take on dry cider as it also has some roasted barley in the mix. The result is a black cider with a white foam. Dry and fresh with a hint of blackcurrant flavour. For the true connoisseur or for when you can’t decide between a cider and a beer…

BrewDog's Jack Hammer now on tap!

We now have a new beer from BrewDog on our tap!

“Press the button, go ahead. What are you waiting for? Your mama’s not coming this time. Don’t slow down. Hammer it.

Start with huge grapefruit aroma. Pile on more bitterness than the human palate (or nipple) can detect, ride the anarchy and caramel craziness and let the devastatingly bitter finish drill straight through your taste buds.

Put a bullet in the head of mediocrity, raise hell and revel in bitter craft awesomeness. This beer is the end of the line. The hopped-up, puckered mouthed extreme of craft brewing. This beer is bitter. Very bitter. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.”

Founder's Centennial IPA back on tap!

Founder’s Centennial IPA has made it’s way back on tap:

Founder’s Centennial IPA 7,2%
Get ready to bask in the glory of the frothy head’s floral bouquet. Relish the citrus accents from the abundance of dry hopping. This one’s sweet, yet balanced. Malty undertones shake hands with the hop character for a finish that never turns too bitter.

Faarao & Kakspäinen Narttu playing live!

Club O’Gaea presents:

Faarao & Kakspäinen Narttu

Faarao & Kakspäinen Narttu is the power trio Pirttikangas-Käppi-Nyrhinen…
Faarao Pirttikangas aka Pekka Pirttikangas is a Kuopio based singer/songwriter in the style of ‘alternative blues and folk’. His music has Tom Waits like qualities and influences from the Balkan and Arabic moods, which combined with the rhythm of the deep south and Finnish folk, make an impressive fusion. Faarao’s rumbling strong pirate bass vocals and dark lyrics flow together with his composed and sophisticated guitar melodies.
Punk is not dead, it’s calmly leaning to the wall behind the sauna with Väinämöinen’s hat on the back of it’s head blowing smoke rings. The winners of the folk music prize of the year for their album “Vuonna ’86”, Pekko Käppi and Juhana Nyrhinen, make their own versions of Finnish punk songs with a Finnish zither, kantele, and a Finnish bowed lyre, jouhikko.

Pekko Käppi plays the ancient Finnish-Karelian bowed lyre. His music has been described like this: ‘In his hands the rough sound of weaved horsehair strings are swaying between the foul and lovely – dirty and pure. The old songs of unwritten tradition, timeless and dark stories mediates in his mouth.’ Ever since 1997 he has been studying the Jouhikko tradition with the master players of Finland, Estonia and Sweden and has been performing with different Jouhikkos in diverse ensembles, theatre productions etc.”

Juhana Nyrhinen has actively composed, played and recorded music with the Kyklooppien Sukupuutto band since 2004. The band has toured extensively from Italy to Australia to US. As a producer he excelled by recording and producing Pekko Käppi new album “Vuonna ’86”.


From: 21.30 Until: 23.00
