Wonderful selection but expensive like Finland is...found some great Nogne O and local Finnish brews, and I was equally impressed with the American selections but of course declined...

The beer selection is vast compared to the regular stores. Occasionally, there are also some relatively rare products. Foreigners should note that prices are - with the exception of rare beers - almost ridiculously high compared to almost any country in Europe.

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

Rune  (402) TromsÝ, Norway | February 10, 2011
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).

gyllenbock  (165) Stockholm, Sweden | July 14, 2010
An inviting Beer Store, at least compared to the Swedish counterparts in terms of Systembolaget. Selection was good with a lot of beers that one can not find at Systembolaget. Prices were quite high, Cantillon Geueze 37,5 cl bottle was 7.06 EUR. Very central location in Helsinki.

Marko  (204) Split / Zagreb, Croatia | April 24, 2010
Nice selection of beers, some of the stuff in there really surprised me. In the end only got Finlandia Strong Sahti and Koff Porter. The cashier spoke good English and was quite chatty about the sahti weíve bought, giving some warnings too :D.

The beer selection, including some beers that canít be found anywhere else in Finland, is mostly made up of good stuff and there arenít too many boring lagers (which is not the case in Systembolaget in Sweden). Prices are a tad high on some beers though, but itís definitely worth a visit. The only staff I spoke to was the cashier who spoke excellent English, and I also overheard a customer asking some questions and the person answering them seemed very knowledgeable and helpful. Donít forget to have a look in the fridghe for sahti!
