BOSA Beer Association

BOSA is an academic beer association that operates mainly at University of Tampere. BOSA’s mission is to educate people enjoying their beer and improve their beer knowledge. We also held occasionally cider, whisky and wine tastings. You can also arrange your own event through us, contact us for more information. We also brew own beer (brands named Kyyrö and Lahtinen) and cider (Penttilä) and teach traditional brewing.
