The food is good and cheap and the atmosphere is very comfy. The place is quite small, sometimes a bit crowd.

Small, cosy pub with local brews. They also serve food, mainly sausages and German style dishes. I had the sausage platter and enjoyed it. I'd come again in need of a cold pint of beer.

The place is located in a small street next to the city center of Kuopio. They only have like 3-4 tables inside and the place is somehow small. The food prices are quite acceptable but their quality is average as well, the beer prices are a bit too much! Imported beers can set you back as much as a month's... More

We had great evening at Bierstube by eating easygoing and delicious finger food and drinking some tasteful beers from large variety of international beers. Price/quality is just perfect. No music at all and that is one thing that we really like when we go to eat and have chat with friends.

Place is pretty small. Make a reservation! It seems like a neighborhood joint, but I assume the tasty hot wings attract people from all over the town. People seemed to do a lot of take away orders. Obviously they have a wide beer selection. They also have a couple of English ciders. Wine selection is poor and the house wine... More

Famous native pub with cheap and delicious food. No noisy music. Plain maybe, but very friendly atmosphere.

We work in Finland and are often in Kuopio. There is usually a crew of eight of us and having been to some of the chain restaurants and pubs, found this place after looking on tripadvisor, on the basis of the good reviews. It was exactly what we were looking for - a warm and friendly place, unpretentious and well... More

Bierstube has been my local bar for several years. I keep coming back because there is good and inexpensive pub food, great company and nice atmosphere. A fantastic place to spend the evening with friends while eating, having a couple of beers and maybe even playing board games. Just plain, unpretentious fun.
