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.

SAQ type atmosphere mostly wine as usual at Systemolaget, I guess hey want people to be "classy" drunks or something. I came twice both times closed, I was like wtf? You close at 3pm?! So in that sense the service & atmosphere suffer, the selection from what I could see online seems to be the best in the country. Prices are the same at all Systembogalets which is to say pricey for Americans but coming from Japan pretty reasonable.

Larger than it’s nearby sibling and with more beers on show. However most of the increase in selection was down to lagers - joy. Did manage to pick up 4 new beers here. But these Swedish state outlets seem like poor cousins to the Norwegian ones.

Deifinitely the best place to buy beer in northern scandinavia (Denmark not included). The selection isn’t super huge, but it changes constantly. The prices are a bit high in continental standards, but low for a northern european country. Super friendly staff (if you speak swedish and/or english). Clean and tidy. I stop by once or twice a month, and there hasn’t been once that I haven’t found something good, new, to sample.

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

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.

Easy to find, good selection of quality beers, a lot of Swedish beers (though quite a lot from large macro-brewers) as well. Fair prices, friendly staff. Certainly worth a visit.

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.
