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.

The good thing about this place is that it had quite a lot of beers from Nögne Ö and Haandbryggeriet which I cannot get without ordering a whole case in Sweden. Prices is of course high, as always in Norway. I didn’t buy that much, even though they also had some interesting Danish beers not found at Swedens Systembolaget. Visited in september 2008.

some interesting international things. but i expected a wide range of norwegian beers. four or five breweries is not very much.
prices are high but that´s normal in scandinavia - especially in oslo which is one of the most expensive cities in the world.

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

Vinmonopolet is norwegian for Wine Monopoly so you’ll mostly find wine and spirits here, but they have a decent selection of beer as well. The staff is helpful, but for some weird reason it isn’t possible for one shop to provide beer from another shop. This is why I gave them a lower service score.

This is the state owned alcohol monopoly of Norway, everything above 4,7 % is sold here only. Their main focus is wine and booze, so the beer selection isn’t the best - and the prices usually are rather stiff. On the other hand, they do have quite a few high quality beers among their standard selection - Nøgne Ø among others. According to their website it is possible to import pretty much everything you’d like, as long as it’s for private use. The costs might be high though.

The price being what it is. What I like about the vinmonopolet is that you can go to their website, review their 72 beers and see which of their many locations spread across the country has which one. Quite service-oriented. Then again, I’m only here a few days so bought a couple of Nogne’s, Aass’s and a bottle from Lithuania. Those 5 bottles pushed me over the eur32 $40 mark... But they are good beers nonetheless.

Well, this is Norway, so the selection remains pretty bad and the prices stunningly high, but I guess this is the one place to go to get yourself a few bottles to bring back home. Forget about beer advice.
