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 - you’ll find things that can’t 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?

Alko’s 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. There’s a reason why some of the bottles last a long, long time there.

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...

Nice selection of both domestic and international beers.

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.

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).
