We now have Helsinki Portteri on tap from Suomenlinna brewery!

Porter is a traditional 1700’s beer from London. Finnish porters are inspired by the beers imported from Britain to the Russian emperor’s court. To withstand the long sea journey they are a little stronger than the traditional British porters. Helsinki Portteri (5.6% vol) is a good foaming, black, top-fermented beer. Aroma is toasted and taste rather light and a little liquorice.

Real ale for just €6.00?

Yes, it’s true! Traditionally, all beer was poured straight from the barrel or pumped from the cellar without nitrogen or carbon dioxide pushing it out the pipe.

Beer was also brewed with natural ingredients so artificial additives (stabilizers, flavourizers and colourizers) played no part – the way it is supposed to be.

That craft of real brewing is back and you can sample a pint or nine every Sunday for the super low price of €6.00 per pint.

It’s also a Student Discount Day!


From: 16.00 Until: 00.30


Monday 04 May 2015
