Põhjala takes well‑known beer styles and adds their 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 homebrewers. Soon thereafter the company was joined by a Scottish head brewer, Chris Pilkington, with a few years of Brewdog experience under his belt.
The first Põhjala beer, Öö Imperial Baltic Porter, was released at the beginning of 2013 and for most of that year, their beers were contract-brewed in other breweries’ production facilities while they prepared to open their own. Construction of their first brewery was completed in April 2014 in Tallinn’s Nõmme district.

OG 20° | FG 6° | IBU 45
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. It 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.
