Põhjala was the first in the new wave of Estonian microbreweries, starting as a gypsy brewery at the end of 2012. In April 2014, we started brewing on our own Premier Stainless 12 hl brewhouse in Tallinn.
We brew small batches of hand crafted ales, using the best malts, loads of mostly New World hops and a relentless passion for good beer. When creating our beers, we are inspired by Nordic nature, Estonian new cuisine and the work of our fellow micro brewers in the U.S., UK and Scandinavia.
Põhjala is owned by Estonian beer enthusiasts and a Scottish head brewer.
