Visited September 2012 with womencantsail, chinoskillzian, and vsxsv.
We walked to half a dozen of these places while taking a walking tour of Stockholm. This is the best of the locations we visited. Our tour guide, Viktor, went through the selection of pale lagers and told us which we hadn’t purchased already at another Systembolaget and which ones were most popular with the bums. I was a little worried that someone might notice that I had a backpack full of cans from other stops but it wasn’t an issue. They also carry better beers, tons of Brew Dog, some Belgians, and some US beers, but we were there mostly to collect cheap northern European lagers. We stuck to beers that were 10 SEK or less. Oh, and they can order you just about anything you want but you have to pay socialist prices for it.

Probably the best take-away bottle selection in Stockholm. All shelved warm. German, Belgian, American and various Scandinavian bottles available. Prices as expected. Street level of the shopping center.

Probably the best and biggest of the monopoly stores. Huge selection of beers, wines, and liquors. As with all the locations, most of the beers are crappy lagers, but there are some good micros and imports available as well. Pricing and service are the same as the other locations.

I was told this was the best store in Stockholm. it might certainly be, they have perhaps 200 different beers, mny swedish micros. I found pretty much half of hat I had noted from their website, most others being seasonals. If it’s on the shelves at the moment, chances are it will be here.

Certainly the best of the SBs I visited in central Stockholm. There is a decent selection of Swedish stuff, though nothing outrageous. Also a good range of Belgian, American and British beers. Prices are good, especially compared against the cost of beers in bars. The shop is incredibly neat. Keep in mind you need a valid form of ID at these shops (passport is preferred).

I visited in September 2005, the selection is not better than the Systembolaget Hansa in Malmö; the only "exceptional" beer they have is Deus
Yes, the selection is wide, but mainly common beers; nothing special about the Swedish micro, nor rare beers...

Probably best beer store in Stockholm- look for the yellow and green octagon sign. This one is on the ground floor of a mall so you have to walk inside a bit to find it. Ambiance is sterile, grocery store style. Very utilitarian. Loads and loads of German and Czech macros in cans. They have singles of a lot of weird stuff, all the Belgian trappists, Orval, BrewDog. They get limited release stuff like Great Divide Yeti and local, top rated imperial stouts. Prices are higher but very reasonable for Stockholm. I ended up buying a good deal of Mikkeller beers I’ve never seen for sale in the US. For beer tourism, it is much easier to just kill the bottle list at top rated local bars. But this was worth the stop I thought. Not out of the way or anything since it’s in the downtown business district.

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.
One of the bigger selections of beers for off licence in Sweden. If in Stockholm and want to go on a ticking frenzy, this is the place to go! Also though, when wanting to find the special releases, at least if you get there fairly soon after they are released. Centrally located, easy to get to by subway/metro and a short walk.

The best of the Swedish monopoly. Decent selection from all over the world with pretty reasonable prices, especially for Sweden.

Huge selection - but the only realy news I found was Swedish lagers. As a ticker I should be happy - but it doesn’t make me over joyed. But then again I picked up a the last bottle of Cantillon Goldackerl Gueuze - at 80 USD.
