Helsinki Craft Beer

The Brewery

ETKO Brewing was founded 2017 by three friends that met each other while drinking beer.

Encouraged by the growing craft beer movement, these curious minds began brewing in the bathroom of a downtown apartment in Töölö. Driven by passion to create something by hand with the finest ingredients and attention paid to details. Endless thirst, a hint of neurosis, numerous scientific articles and brews were required to move us into next level.

We are inspired by more than just great sessionable craft beers. We enjoy taking approach towards our other passions in life including travel, music, design and food. Our beers are fresh, dangerously drinkable, sometimes adventurous. Always high quality, handcrafted and Helsinki made.
