Established in 1819 in the city of Helsinki, Finland. Nikolai Sinebrychoff purchased the brewing monopoly for Helsinki at auction on October 13, 1819 and thus began the Finnish brewing industry. The brewery stopped producing the product in the 1890s. More recently, when they wanted to produce it again for the Olympics in Helsinki in 1952, the brewery was only producing lager beers. The sample yeast for the first batch was supposedly taken from a bottle of naturally conditioned Guinness. Sinebrychoff Porter is still brewed at the original brewery.
