Loads of beer and in pretty comfortable surroundings, what's not to like? The blackboard behind the bar lists dozens of beers and ciders, several on tap too. Food in the form of snacks and bar meals are also available. Five minutes walk from the station.

If you enjoy relaxed atmosphere and good beer selection, this is the place to go. The place is right next to the main railway station and metro, so very accessible location.

I stumbled upon this place on my way back to my hotel. It is quiet and has a large selection of beer. The staff is very knowledgeable. When I suggested the style ia was interested in, imperial, they made some excellent recommendations. If your are looking for beer in Helsinki try this place.

Ok...almost missed this place - their address shown was not open, we were bummed...but we walked just around the corner and saw the Kaisla sign.... It was packed on Thursday afternoon - great mix of people. Great fun, but pricey beers - $14.90 Euro for two local pints. Very nice people, so enjoy one!

Wow what a cool place. Glad we found this. Not cheap. But go on Sunday and it is a bit cheaper. Good pub food. And lots of Felipe's beer to choose from. Will definitely go back.

Kaisla is a rather spacious pub in the very centrum of Helsinki. With an extensive assortment of beers and ciders Kaisla has its place among the most well-equipped bars in the Finnish context. Somewhat pricey, the place caters for a variety of tastes. Also pub food (toasts, snacks) is served here, should hunger surprise you in the midst of gulping... More

Kaisla has by far the best selection of beers in Helsinki. Great place to meet up with friends and enjoy quality beers from all over the world. If you wish to save money, try their Sunday special with any pint on the tap for the price of a small one!

Fantastic beer house with a wide range of beers from across the world. Friendly staff who cannot help you enough and a snack menu suitable to soak up the beer. Highly recommended.

Great bar near to the train station. Lots of beers (around 20 on draught) from all over the world. Big beer cabinet for more choice in bottles. Went on a Tuesday and the place was not busy, and also, it is huge inside. They do taster boards too to help you get through the choice
