    Hey guys! I'm Steve, and this is my first forum-post. I've been living in Finland for 2 months (Fresh transplant from the American Pacific-Northwest)! Some of my favorite beers include Flyer's Pacemaker Porter, Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout, Ninkasi Oatmeal Stout, Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA, and basically most American Strong Ale, porters and stouts. I've run into a HUGE absence of any type of ale, and an even larger lack of Porters and Stouts, since I moved to Finland! I feel like their beer scene is lacking, and am looking to try something with more substance than their watery lagers! Anyone know of any amazing Finnish breweries, or any places to buy craft beer in the Tampere/Nokia area?

    A quick search shows that Plevna, brewpub in Tampere, is probably your best bet.

    Not breweries, but as far as bars go: Gastropub Tuulensuu also receives favorable reviews and seems to feature a number of imported beers. Olutravintola Konttori and Gastropub Nordic also seem worth a look.
