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.

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 we’ve bought, giving some warnings too :D.

The beer selection, including some beers that can’t be found anywhere else in Finland, is mostly made up of good stuff and there aren’t too many boring lagers (which is not the case in Systembolaget in Sweden). Prices are a tad high on some beers though, but it’s 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. Don’t forget to have a look in the fridghe for sahti!

Seems to keep most of the rarer beers in big amounts and also usually has the sahti’s available. Seems to be storing a lot of special wines and the whisky shelf looked quite good compared to the whisky departments at my local alko’s. Good and helpful service.

Fantastic place. I like going here just for checking out what they have. And I usually walk out with a new beer! Friendly people and wine cellar in the basement. Affordable prices when it comes to (high-end) wines, but the beers could be a bit cheaper.

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.

This is the brand new flagship store of the Finnish Alko (liquour monopoly). It is very centrally located, in 2 floors, and offers about 2600 different alcoholic drinks (mostly wines, sorry). It doesn’t carry all the beers available in Alko, but most of them. What’s more important, however, is that they sell many products (also beers!) that are not available in any other Alko shops in Finland. The (changing) special selection is available online at http://www.alko.fi/lippulaiva/fi
