A field trip for beer lovers
The tour begins at the Brewery Restaurant Koulu (School), operating in a former all-girls school built at the end of the 19th century. Beer lovers can explore the ingredients, textures and processes of the brewery. During the visit you’ll taste four of the Koulu’s own brands of beer. After your ‘primary studies’ the tour continues to the Old Bank – also known as simply the Bank – a pub situated in what used to be the offices of a bank and converted into a comfortable restaurant. You then cross the river from the Bank to the New Pharmacy on foot. This quaint and cozy pub combines the unique atmosphere of an old apothecary with a wonderful array of refreshments. Here you can enjoy another cold one. The tour also includes a Turku guide to accompany you, who will explain the history and restaurant culture of Turku along the way.
