Although the selection of beer types are not abundant (having in mind the 30,000+ sorts included on this website), it’s mostly great in the overall alcohol category, especially by focusing on high quality products. Perhaps for this reason, perhaps not, other types of alcohol are favoured, especially red wines, sparkling wine, whiskey and cognac. My ratings are based on this wide spectrum of offering, not solely the beer selection available. It’s more than sufficient for my demands, although it could, of course, always have been ten times, or a 100 times, bigger. But then again Oslo ain’t Tokyo either. My main complaint is of course the excessive pricing, but this is due to government politics, not their own private policies. :)

This shop has a good selection of beers. 194 presently(see beer menu link. Not as interesting as Vika, but this is right in the middle of Oslo. Next to Vinmonopolet, there’s also Meny, which has a good selection of bottles with 4.7ABV or less. Be advised to enter Oslo City from Jernbanetorget subway station, or you have to walk among thousands of people shopping for clothes.

Very good selection af beer, according to Norwegian standards. Almost 95 % of available beers in the Vinmonopolet system was seen during my visit in October 2011.

Decent selection, they always keep a bit more than the standard Vinmonopolet selection. Staff is helpful, but often busy.

This is the Vinmonopolet (Norwegian state owned wine, liquor and strong beer monopoly) store with the best selection. Will normally shelf stock ALL beers (including the ones in "bestillingsutvalget") that are available through Vinmonopolet. Be aware that nearly all alcoholic drinks are more expensive in Norway than in any other country in the world.

Above average vinmonopol selection. Very sentral in downtown Oslo, right next to Meny Oslo City that has a good selectoin of <4.7 ABV beers.

Drink center next to the central station of Oslo. Focuss is on wines, but they do have a very nice selection of beer as well. Some Norwegian macro’s and micro’s added with some nice Belgian, American and Britisch ales. Expensive yes, but to Norwegian standards. If you are looking for some bottles in Norway, good place to visit.

A fair selection of the commonly available Norwegian beers from Nøgne, Ægir and HaandBryggeriet plus a few others - seems to have the best of the Vinmonopolets in central Oslo. Clearly the focus here is on wine, so the beer placement is not good. Typical prices of 60-70 NOK a bottle.

Vinmonopolet is a chain of government-owned liquor stores. They have a monopoly on the sale of beer above approx 4.75% abv, so a stop here is a MUST (beer under 4.75% is sold in grocery stores). The selection was typical for Scandinavia - lame. Try the Aass beer, it’s quite enjoyable. Also, some new Norwegian micros are springing up that are actually quite notable, such as Nogne O and Haandbryggeriet, so check them out.
