As an ex pat beer loving Brit living in Helsinki now for over 2 years I can tell you that this place is without question the best beer house in the city and one of the best in Europe.

Usually quite busy place, but there's always table somewhere. It has the best choice of beers in central and it also feels quite cozy.

The place is very big, so it's a great choice for groups of friends. If you drop by on a Saturday evening, you will most probably not be able to find a place to sit! The beers are good and they have a good variety of them. The snacks are not recommended at all though. The friend potatos and onions... More

We`ve been to Kaisla in early april and it was the best experience we had in town. Wide variety of beers, bottled and draught, nice appetizers and snacks and reasonable price. The place is huge and is usually crowded, we got there around 9 and had to wait for a table, not sure if booking is available.

To start with: I'm a beer enthusiast. This place has been on my list of go-to's quite long time. In January I finally had my chance to visit as we had a company party next door. this place packs a veri vast selection of foreign beers and a good selection of domestic brews as well.

Although very busy, we did find a table and found that we could talk easily without having to shout over music. There are lots of people playing board games etc. A very good mix of age and type of people. We are... More
