Okay so I checked it and it seems the tours for the Koff beer tram start at 5th of May and continue through summer. So In April I suggest you to rent the pubtram, it's only a 880€ for 2 hours of fun and a very reasonable 234€ for even more fun as extra hours.

For the budget in version in April I suggest you to take the tram number 3 that makes a continous round loop around Helsinki. Buy a bag of beer and take the back seat. Refilling is easy, many grocery stores near stops throughout the route. The tram ticket costs a few euros and is valid for an hour. Use the Travel Card, I don't recommend you to buy the second hour ticket from the driver.

Thank you for clearing that up and the tip about tram nr3!
The reply to your original question was written a bit tongue on cheek. But the facts are valid. And the tram nro 3 is a good choice. Many people drink beer in a tram although its forbidden. But this is Finland, and public drinking is not a reason to get a fine unlike in e.g. the states. As long as you do it kind of sneaky, no one will care. In the worst case scenario you might have to leave the current tram. I recommend you to co-operate with yhe driver and just leave the current tram. No fine, no nothing.

For My knowledge and what read from their website it runs from 5th May to 17th of September with a schedule that varies.

But you have an option to book it to your group.

Here is the website. It is Finnish but you can google translate it. It’s pretty standard information.
