Brewery Restaurant Plevna

Welcome to enjoy a relaxed beer restaurant atmosphere!

Brewery Pub & Restaurant

Whether you like dark or pale lager, stout or wheat beer, all these tasty beers, and many more, can be enjoyed in the historic surroundings of the Plevna Brewery Pub & Restaurant.

Plevna was established in 1994, in the old Finlayson cotton mills, and it is the only genuine brewery pub in Tampere, producing a vast selection of beers made on the premises. Since its opening, Plevna has been one of the most popular meeting places for local people and visitors alike.

In Plevna you can enjoy a variety of pure, flavoursome beer from our brewery, delicious food, unique surroundings,  and, of course, the well-known jovial company of Tampere.

Koskipanimo Brewery

Koskipanimo Oy, located in the heart of the brewery restaurant Plevna, has continued the Tampere brewing tradition since 1994.

We produce more than twenty products: beers, cider and brewery mead. Several smaller batches of various seasonal and specialty products are also completed each year.

You can buy our products at Plevna’s Beer Store and our online store. Koskipanimo’s products are also available at Tuomiokirkonkatu Oluthuone Panimomestari and selected K-stores.



James Finlayson, a Scotsman, founded a cotton mill in Tampere in 1820. The weaving hall, where The Plevna Brewery Pub & Restaurant is located today, was built in 1877, and the name Plevna dates back to this period.

In the Russo-Turkish War (1877-78) there were men from the Finlayson cotton mills who fought alongside Russian troops, and since the custom of the day was to name each new Finlayson building after some significant current event, the weaving hall was named after a battle fought in the Balkan town of Plevna during this conflict. Therefore, it was more than appropriate for us to call our pub Plevna.

Plevna is also linked with another historic event: in 1882, the very first electric light bulbs in the Nordic countries brought light to the Finlayson weaving hall, only three years after Thomas Alva Edison’s invention.
