In contrast to mainland Denmark, the Faroes follows the rest-of-Scandinavia model of state-run liquor stores, known as Rusan or the Monopol. These are the only places on islands to buy beer to take home. This being the most central, it has the potential to draw down from the full list of 75-80 beers, including most if not all of the local brews from Okkara and Föroya, plus imports that now run to Rochefort and Chimay plus a few unusual Brits. It is nudging forward slowly but still has no Danish craft beers, amazingly.

A great variety of Faroe beers, but they have the idea that you have to buy a case of beers, and not single bottles. As long as they are Faroe beers, imported you can buy one at at time.

Well, this is the Faroes, so don’t expect much of a selection. The most annoying thing is that most Faroese beers are sold only in sixpacks. A few foreign beers are sold in singles. Hell, people go to the Faroes to enjoy the beautiful scenery - it is not a beery destination! Still, Rúsan has just enough drinkable beers to keep you from dying of thirst.

In the Faroe Islands the only place to get beer stronger than low alc. beers (plus wine and liquor) in off-tade is at the goverment owned stores, just like in Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland. Nice store with a good selection of beers from the Faroes, quite some macro and a few micro beers from Denmark, some Icelandic and a selection of the typical international beers like Guinness, Tiger, Murphys, Leffe, Heineken etc.
