Stable selection of finnish micros, quite a lot of german brews, a few belgians etc. Best thing about it is however the two sahtis in the fridge!

Iíll admit it, I was pretty impressed with this shop. Compared to the Swedish or Norwegian monopolies, Alko has reasonable opening hours and better prices. The selection wasnít exactly wide, but there was some great stuff on the shelf, including Westv XII and some special relases from NŲgne ÷ (why doesnít Sweden get this stuff?). I could only find one or two bottles from each of the major Finnish craft breweries, but Iím guessing they rotate? I was buying Finnish souvenir-beers (souvibeers!) so I didnít really look at the prices for foreign stuff, Iím guessing theyíre rather high, but the prices for Finnish stuff were not bad (for the nordic world).

Nice selection, decent selection of Finnish micros and surpringsly good selection of American beers too. To different sahtis were present at the time of my visit. Lots of interesting beers in the shelves, but the prices stopped med from going bananas.

Botiga de alcohols en general, amb una selecciů de cerveses tan fineses com internacionals. Com a curiositat tenien una cervesa valenciana, la socarrada.

Best beer shop in Finland, the flagship of Finnish monopoly. Average selection even it is best in Finland. Over priced as all in Finland.

I came here looking for some local commercially available sahtis. Unfortunately the selection is a bit thin although it does encompass a diverse range of Finnish breweries. You can even pick up a couple international ticks if you like at higher prices than youíll find elsewhere in Europe. Swing by here but donít expect much in the way of a good deal.

In the same building as Finnish alcohol monopoly Alko headquarter near parliament house. Has its own special selection of alcohol drinks on the side of the normal selection. Best beer shop in Finland, unfortunately.

The flagship store of the Finnish monopoly. Bright, clean place. The selection is ok - youíll find things that canít be bought elsewhere in Finland - but still limited to whatever the monopoly decides to include in its selection (which is, beer-wise, quite limited). The quality of the service varies. Mostly quite eager to help, but too often the clerks resort to standard textbook advices.

Well you might find something interesting, but the pricing is frightening - even by Helsinki standards. 42 euros for a bottle of Shepherd Neame Generation Ale anybody?

Alkoís special store with a lot of products not found at their other stores. Mostly wine, but a few beers as well, especially rare one-off types. At least one of the salespersons present will know at least something about beer. The bad thing is the price. Everything is expensive, most very much so, some outrageously. Thereís a reason why some of the bottles last a long, long time there.
