Põhjala Brewery

We are Põhjala Brewery. Our beers are inspired by our heritage, local nature and cuisine. We take well‑known beer styles and add our own distinctive twist with surprising ingredients or long barrel aging.
Põhjala was founded in Tallinn, Estonia at the end of 2011 by four Estonian beer enthusiasts and home brewers.

12.5% Imperial Stout
A banging Imperial stout brewed with smashed rowan berries, Estonian juniper wood, and smoked malts.
Taste: Smooth, rich berries mix with an explosion of smoke and spice - fennel, molasses, grape, pine resin and the hint of pipe tobacco.
Appearance: Jet black with a dark brown head.Nose: Freshly chopped juniper wood and tarry, campfire smoke mingles with overripe rowan berries, freshly fallen from the tree branches. Hints of moss and light marzipan follow, with an assertive touch of steeped Lapsang Souchong black tea leaves.

7.8% Porter
A rich porter with smooth honey notes. Brewed with lactose for that extra silky texture. Enjoy on its own or as a dessert at the end of a decadent meal. Contains barley malt and lactose.
Taste: As with the aroma, chocolate will come through first and foremost – this time a creamy white chocolate. Balancing this is a suggestion of delicate coffee with a decadent hint of raspberry and blackcurrant.
Appearance: Jet-black with a crema-like head.
Nose: The aroma of smooth milk chocolate will pour out of the bottle when opened, quickly followed by both honey and blackcurrant jam.
