Visited on Saturday lunchtime, 22/03/14, around 11.30/12.00.
Located inside a largeish shopping centre and convenient for the centre of Goteborg.
All drinks available from wine to spirits but our focus was of course on
2 or 3 aisles (about 25% of the store) dedicated to beers split largely into Swedish micro, Belgian offerings, then others, all the macro crap at one end on its own.
Good mix of stuff largely comprised from the UK, the US, SWE, Germany and Belgium. Prices are good, as per other Systembolagets, US bombers from the likes of Stillwater for around £8/$12! There were staff at hand to ask questions if required and service was fine at the till, I didn’t have to queue for long.
I can see the advantages (great prices and interesting imports) and disadvantages (limited range in some respects).
Definately somewhere I’d head back to though!

Systembolaget main facts:
Chain of government controlled monopoly stores to sell alcohol with an ABV higher than 3.5% to take home.
20 years age limit to shop, or even to accompany someone else making a purchase. If ID can not be produced, you might get refused service.
All alcoholic beverages above 3.5% ABV you wish to buy in Sweden and not from a "Systembolaget" store, you will have to buy at a pub or restaurant, for consumption at the place where you purchased it. Minimum age requirement 18 years, the pub itself might opt for another age limit though, making it so you need to be older still.
Alcohol at 3.5% ABV or lower may be for sale to take home at regular stores that have a permit for it, age limit 18 years, ID may be required.
Latest visit was Tuesday December 9, 2014, around 5 pm.
You could see it is getting "close" to the holidays, since it was already getting long lines to the check out. No real crowd though, at least not around the beers. Earlier text below.
One of the best/biggest selections in Sweden.
If you find the right guy also a very good service and knowledge. Shall carry all new beers released (every month) and have the full selection of the regular assortment.

I did not bother about Swedish beer in cans, but headed for bottles from Dugges and Ocean, and found 3-4 different types of each. My taxfree was secured!

Quite nice selection, but there is no major interest for beer among thew staff. This place is one of the best in Sweden, but still its not great.

Nice System with a nice selection of swedish microes. Usually a few Ocean. Prices quite low. The second time I visited not so many "off list specials" as first time. Friendly staff.

Visited day after the Avenyn location.
Not much of an atmosphere or service, it’s a big government store and nothing else.
This one is much bigger but I found the selection to be lacking compared to some of the beers I managed to find at Avenyn. I know this is the place for some of the newest releases hence possibly why I saw the local Ocean and Dugges to be missing.
Plenty of British ales and German-Czech beers, a few Belgians as well but nothing too special. Beers are all well presented with usually a little beer info tage.
Good selection of Swedish (Ocean/Dugges as locals) beers along with some other Scandinavians, prices for the Swedish and Danish beers are fair compared to how much such bottles usually cost in Belgium.

I was here a couple of years ago and remember the fine selection of beers. I is easy to get to in the mall there. Not crowded at all. Good for a quick fix from the train station.

The biggest and best Systembolaget in Göteborg in terms of beer range. They get all of the special releases and also stock several beers from Ocean.
