Lonely Planet review
This noble wooden building was formerly a fever hospital then a mental asylum, but these days writes happier stories as an excellent microbrewery and restaurant just across the harbour from the town centre. The food focuses on fresh local ingredients and might feature unusual fare like goose or wild boar, all expertly prepared and served in generous quantities. The staff will recommend a beer match, whether it be fresh, hoppy Joutsen, traditional sweet sahti (ale flavoured with juniper berries), or the deliciously rich dessert stout. The terrace is a wonderful place on a sunny afternoon, with live music some weekends.
