Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Staff hears your wishes, it’s almost telepathic! Amazing beer and wine selection and nice cozy terrace in middle of Kuopio.

I have been to the Kuopion Korttelimuseo and needed a beer after a long day, so I strolled around at Kauppakatu and found a bar with a suitable name “Malja”, which mean “Toast” in English. I went in and bought a beer and sat at...the terrace and saw people passing by. Friendly staff.More

There is a Happy Hour (= Hilipeet Tunnit) every day until 20:00. Beer (50 cl), cider (33 cl) and long drink (33 cl) are all only 3,90 euros. There is a pleasant terrace with cathedral views. The interior is a little bit on the dark...side.More

This bar has it all: excellent beer and whisky selection, nice atmosphere and attentive personnel. What else could you ask for a bar? Beer selection varies from time to time to keep things interesting so this place always offers something new worth trying. And If...you want to stick with your alltime favourite brew or dram you will most likely find that too.More

This is a place for a beer-lover. There is a good selection of beers and also friendly staff. The prices weren't much higher than on the average in Finland. It's possible to get also some of the most common drinks, in addition to the selection...of beers.More

Good selection of beers and one of the few crowded beer gardens in Kuopio, with nice staff albeit a little worn down interiors. I had The Marysville Misfit from danish Amager Bryghus and it was excellent. If you're a beer aficionado, I highly recommend it....Apparently it's no longer available for import so get it while it lasts.More

A nice, quite small and cozy pub close to Kuopio city center. 11 taps. Okay service. Not really a cheap place. No food. The best place in Kuopio to have some craft beers. Big patio in front of the bar.

Plenty of beer here! They alternate their list and the breweries where they order from time to time so you'll find something new every visit. Atmosphere in the bar is cozy and living-room-like, staff knows what they do!
