We will taste 7 different types of Estonian craft beer while learning about the styles, history & tradition of making it. We will go over the brewing process, watch some quick illustrative videos and have a chat in a relaxed private tasting room around massive oak tables. You get to know what goes inside the beer other than water, why is India Pale Ale called like that or where is the worlds oldest running brewery. While talking about beer Ill throw in some local jokes & test your level of sensitivity. We locals have a pretty dark sense of humour. Im always open for suggesting best craft beer bars, specialty beer shops or places to eat great gourmet burgers or local cuisines. The 2 hour beer tasting session will go by so fast you wonna stay there for longer. Now you are advanced into a local beer expert & need to go practice around Tallinn oldtown & brag to your friends that you know what IPA stands for.
When I was hired as a "Beer Spy" 13 years ago I discovered the liquid world of craft beer. This was the perfect job for a freshman in the university. Got paid in "liquid assets". I was trained as a sommelier & started sneaking around bars or restaurants secretly rating the quality of beer & service. Then I stumbeled upon american ales & british porters. Wow those beers are actually tasty. From then on I tried to copy every great beer I had drank & homebrewed over 300 batches of beer. 5 years later I realised im a bit lazy & focused on just drinking the beers. Once I had tried most of the local new beers I had to travel to new countries to keep my thirst satisfied. By now I traveled over 30 different countries, hundreds of bars & breweries loosing count after 2000 beers tasted. Its your time to experience local craft & get to know Estonia

We will meet at Tallinn oldest student organisation Leola that was established in 1920. Hundred years of Estonian beer tradition is presented in a room filled with massive oak table seating up to 32 people in beer garden style. The ambient atmosphere & traditional look is a great setup to enjoy the oldest brew in the world with friends. We dont need to go anywhere else cause its all there and 5 min walk away from Freedom Square and Old Town.
