After long day of traveling by boat and train from Åland we arrived in Tampere, Finland in the evening. Being a Saturday evening we were not ready to sleep early so we dropped off our bags at the hotel and went to Pyynikin Brewhouse and their big, but very cosy brewhouse and beergarden.
The Pyynikin beergarden was packed with people on this light and warm nordic summer night that invited to beers outside. Eventhough it was summer the inside was packed with people aswell. The beers were great and we enjoyed every bit of this place.
The four Pyynikin beers we enjoyed were:
1) American IPA - a very tasty and kind of old school american ipa, but with a rather low bitterness.
2) Rød Berliner - a raspberry berliner weisse. This one is a real thirst quencher with a balanced acidity and fruit addition.
3) Cloudberry Saison - a farmhouse ale with a very low, actually non-existing carbonation - very tasty beer.
4) Mosaic Lager - a super nice lager with very evident Mosaic hops.
Cloudberry Saison and American IPA are very recommendable beers and the other two were solid beers aswell Pictures of the beers and the beer garden can be seen here.
If you want to go to Tampere, Finland and Pyynikin Brewhouse my recommendation would be to go in the summer and sit outside to enjoy the great beers and the light in the evening.
More from Tampere, Finland will come in my next post - see you!
