Huge and prestigious selection of their own beer in taps and some very nice guest taps as well. Place is little bit far from the center of the city, but well worth the trip and it makes it up in the atmosphere in the old...industrial halls. Tried the feast for four dinner and it had a lot of food and everything on it was good, at least we thought so after a few beers. Came back for second round the day after and visited their sauna too. It was cheap and had a nice relaxing sofa room in addition to the 10-person sauna with great views.More

The Pohjala taproom obviously offers a great selections of beers. We both had a tasting flight with 5 of Pohjala's own beers. We also ordered two dishes for lunch. While the food and beer were great, the staff was a bit too ironically uninterested. We...did not really get any helpful tips when deciding on which beers we'd like to taste. However, it's a perfect place to go and try Pohjala's beers, but the staff could try and be slightly more interested in their guests.More

This place has no soul ; it does not have a friendly atmosphere and nothing makes it really special and different like a place you would like to come back to. The food is ok but the waiters are of the Mc Donald style. Everything...shines but it is not what you ask in a cosy atmosphere....but this is not a cozy atmosphereMore

Estonia is not known for its beef. It's a pork nation and beef has never been part of the culture. Even if you dine on one of those longhorn cattle that roam the islands, the meat still somehow doesn't measure up. But, holy cow, Põhjala's...brisket is first rate. The beer is excellent, too, and with two-dozen or so choices you can't help but find something you'll like. Finally, it's loud as an American tap room. Many Estonian restaurants are as quiet as a public library. Not here. Plenty of people having a grand ol' time.More

Great beer, food and venue. Staff are knowledgeable and they go the extra length to find your beer. The brewery is a must visit if you are in Tallinn!

Third time and again same issues. No Brisket, we just ran out. Try to avoid beginning of the week.. Beer is good and food is good.. if you have the patience to wait for a looooong time. Place really have potential but needs more staff...and a better customer serviceMore

Unfortunately we have cancelled two visits here due to Covid 19 lockdowns and on both occasions Pohjala have refunded the booking cost without hesitation (if only Ryanair customer service was even half as good!). If the brewery visit we hope to make one day is...half as good as the customer service, we will be very happy customers (we're already fans of the beer!)More

This is is an amazing renovated building at the port just on the edge of Kalamaja. The beer is excellent and they have a huge selection. The food, although quite niche in that it is mostly BBQ-style, is very good. The tamale dish is superb....There is some outdoor seating which is fantastic in summer, but when it's full the inside space is still great. You pay at the bar, get a number and take a seat.More
