The opening times of this place are a pain in the arse, closed Sunday and Bank Holidays FFS! When you do manage to find it open there is a decent selection of bottles to be had, I picked up 20 without trying and probably could have doubled that if I had some help carrying them. Beers are mostly along the back wall but watch out for random displays of the odd beer or two throughout the store. Sahti’s were available, but from the fridge adjacent to the back wall. Overall definitely worth a visit but avoid bank holidays!

Beer area is at the back of the store, I was expecting better selection but it wasn’t that great, at least when I visited. No rare staff, most foreign beers weren’t exciting, no US beers. It actually took me half a hour to find 8 good beers to take away. Price is ~4 euro for a 33ml bottle, which is ok.

Place rating #500! Alko Helsinki Arkadia is probably one of the largest and most central outposts of the state-run booze monopoly. Inside it is clean and almost clinical. Selection seems pretty decent, but this is the only Alko store I visited on my trip, so it is difficult to compare. Good selection Finnish and world-wide microbrews. Seems like there a few one-off brews for the Alko chain. There are a few ice-ciders available, which although expensive are not overly so in comparison to other countries. I headed straight for the fridge to stock up on Sahti’s! Then I pretty much got boosted on them. I suppose this is THE place to go for take-away beer in Helsinki. Alright.

The biggest Alko in Finland I suppose. Not a bad selection of beers but one could expect more for a state-run store with monopoly on anything above 4.6%. Certainly overpriced but most of it is due to the Finnish taxes on alcohol.

Looks clean, bit sterile and expensive. Compared to Kamppi less quantity but more quality. Looks also bit more expensive, but I think it’s depends on taxing the alcohol by %.

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!

I’ll 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 wasn’t exactly wide, but there was some great stuff on the shelf, including Westv XII and some special relases from Nögne Ö (why doesn’t Sweden get this stuff?). I could only find one or two bottles from each of the major Finnish craft breweries, but I’m guessing they rotate? I was buying Finnish souvenir-beers (souvibeers!) so I didn’t really look at the prices for foreign stuff, I’m guessing they’re 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 selecció 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.
