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.

Best Alko in Finland. Good location (if you’re not driving). High prices.

Has definitely got point of resemblance with Vinmonopolet in Norway. You go here to find the strongest and often the best of Finnish brews, including the traditional Sahti stuff. Added is a fine mix of Danish, Dutch, American, German, and Belgian beers. This one should be the best in the Alko chain and has always got something special to offer. Central location (visited, 03.02.2011).

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.

Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. Passable selection of beers, alas the ’tickers’ are too quick here in Finland, and new releases can sell out almost instantly.

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?

Not a bad selection for a visitor seeking a few take-homes, but not a vast quantity of beers.

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 you’ll find elsewhere in Europe. Swing by here but don’t expect much in the way of a good deal.

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 %.
