Birger is the place to get the best selection of beers in Hämeenlinna. The bartenders are friendly and they have good knowledge of the items they sell. They also serve tapas and sandwiches and both of them taste really good..

I love Birger atmosphere and the beers they have there! Wide range of choices for beers, good ciders and good snacks and sandwiches. The staff is always helpful, friendly and the service is great. Best table is the one closer to the big window. Lovely to see the snow falling and feeling very cozy there.

Birger is an excellent beer restaurant with (mostly) knowledgeable staff. Any recommendations by the younger bartenders tend to be spot on. They also serve some snacks which is nice and really rare in Finnish pubs. The pub is a bit more upscale and mostly visited by the more well-off people of the city.

Fine selection of quality beers from all over the world - if you're friend of good pint, this is your place. Do not expect large menu (except in terms of beer). However sandwiches are quite good and there is tasty Tapas served (at lest on thursdays).

By far the best place in town to enjoy imported beers. Recommended especially for all Trappist lovers.
