Great innovations of Turku. Huh-huh !! This place is parallel to "Uusi Apteekki", set up in a real environment. Great selection of IPA beers and one local APA which is superb.

I hadn't been here for almost 20 years so it was time to check whether it's still going strong and it sure was. The interior is still impressive and I remember that when it was first turned into a public house back in the early 90's they did they best to preserve the old bank atmosphere. It's a very nice...

We decided to have a last drink before going back to our hotel after a dinner together with collegues. It is not very clean, there was a bad smell at the entrance and the service was not good. I do not recommend coming there again.

Traditional place and very popular. Former bank but it seems that the decor and some of the furniture needs (broken sofas and very 80's exterior, shabby) little bit updating. But they have pretty nice selection of special beers etc. so maybe other things can be forgiven. Small terrace outside.

Given a tour of drinking houses in Turku by my colleague Pekka. This was probably my favourite, the old counters serving as the bars with lots of nooks and crannies to explore and a big range of beers to try

The beer selection was good, we didn't get any food though. The decor inside is very cool, classy and vintage.

Exellent selection of beers, probably best in Turku. But if there is a person not so keen on beers, the selection is fairly narrow. But if you love beer, this is the place to be.

Vast selection of foreign beers served by people who understand the gravity of the beer. Also the surroundings are awesome as the restaurant is actually an old bank!

So, a micro brewery, wide range of local beers, fantastic location / decor so what's not to like. If you visit Turku this is a must!
