EXOTIC NORDIC DRINKS – POHJOLAN EKSOOTTISET JUOMAT
SELF GUIDED TASTING TOUR.
As you may know vines do not grow succesfully here in the nordic. But that does not separate us from having fun. On the contrary. Come along and see what we have invented!
1.Please come visit the smallest bar in the city. Starting point for the tour.
Bookers Bar is located in the Tampere Theatre house. Right in the middle of the city (Hämeenkatu 14 B). We will give you information and instructions needed for your tasty trip. Starting with tasting of SAHTI (from the germanic word ”saft” aka ”juice” of barley) one of the oldest beer styles survived. Only made here in Finland. Popular in homes and country houses but sheldomly sold publicly. Sahti is sweet and strong, un-pastorized, un-filtered and as natural as it gets.
2.See the main square and get into the wine bar.
Bookers bar is two steps from our main square and 200 meters from Deli 1909 & Wine Bar. On your way you will see some of the oldest architecture and buildings in Tampere around the main square. And if you are lucky maybe some of the many changing events held there around the year.
At Deli 1909 & Wine Bar (Puutarhakatu 11) you have a chance to mix your own cocktail from local products. Guided with our staff who will also serve you some appetizers made from local goods.
3.Get to the park and Gastropub.
Once following the same street, Puutarhakatu, to the west, you will get to the beautiful Hämeenpuisto. A city park that used to be the place for Sunday walks and also guarded the city center from possible city fires during the times when most of Tampere was housed by wooden buildings.
Right there in the corner of Puutarhakatu and Hämeenpuisto is Gastropub Tuulensuu. The first gastropub in Finland, many times chosen as the Best Beer Restaurant in Finland, mentioned in the list of the 50 Best Restaurants in Finland, The Best Beer List in Finland Winner 2018, etc.
Tuulensuu got it’s name from the ancient fields which used to be around here before the city was built. Tuulensuu- Mouth of the Wind.
So after some park life, please get in. We will serve you a aperitif, a three course meal and drinks. All the dishes are designed to match the drinks you are going to experience. Drinks are locally produced by Rönnvik http://www.ronnvik.com/ who are specialiced in growing nordic berries and fermenting those into delicious drinks. As an aperitif you will have a Rhubarb ”wine”. The starter and main course will also be served with different berry based drinks suited to your chosen dish (meat/fish/vegetable/vegan). With your dessert we will serve you a sweet liquor made from Saskatoon berries.
After the dinner we welcome you to stay in our premises or wish you a pleasant evening in the city. Followed by a small gift, a jar of locally made wild berry jam.
Thank you for your company and travelling in our footsteps.
You will find us also from the DesignOn Tampere map. DesignOn Tampere is association which promotes design and city culture in Tampere. While on your tour you will pass by many of these interesting spots. If interested, please check www.designontampere.com
