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.


Pohjala Birthday Bänger Imperial Stout...$6.99 / 11.2oz bottle
12.5% Imperial Stout
Imperial Stout brewed with mountains of chocolate, cacao nibs, tonic beans, and vanilla for a big birthday celebration.
Taste: Sweet and sticky vanilla-marzipan frosting coats the tongue with a smooth and creamy feel of a chocolate milkshake immediately afterwards. Going back for a second slice - or sip - reveals jammy mixed red fruits and a sweet biscuity malt base, whilst a third sip transports you back to your 5th birthday party in the summer, running across the grass whilst shoving handfuls of your parent’s lovingly baked cake down you before it could melt in the sun.

Appearance: Thick, viscous black with a dark brown mocha-like head.
Nose: Immediately rich, moist chocolate cake mixes with hints of black forest gateau, with sweet red fruits and rich vanilla with sugary malts following.

Pohjala Cocobänger Imperial Stout...$6.99 / 11.2oz bottle
12.5% Imperial Stout with Coffee and Coconut
A banging Imperial stout brewed with coconut and a Caturra coffee from Costa Rica.
Taste: Creamy, dessert-like coconut followed by a rush of Turkish coffee - earthy, tarry, balanced by the taste of plums and blackberry. As the beer warms, chocolate notes start to shine, with hints of caramelised sugar layering on top of the roasted coffee. Finally, the oiliness of the coconut and the smooth coffee crash down the tongue, lingering and leaving their seductive taste until the inevitable next sip.

Appearance: Pitch black with a lingering, short brown head.
Decadent, burnt coconut notes, with espresso liqueur. Chocolate and sweet malts, with a port wine, raisin like character.

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.
