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.

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. :)

The rating must be seen in connection with the poor selection in Norway. Also, the service rating would be higher is this site was named Ratewine. The knowledge of beer is next to zero. The upside of this store is that they have most of the beers available in Norway with an ABV of 4,8% +.

Seems to be slipping. A good selection, including some you usually have to order, like Old Specled Hen, but no Julebokk, to mention one.

Every time I visit a Vinmonopolet store I feel baffled that the government can force the total selection of beers in a country to be this ridiculouly small. I can understand the idea behind the extreme taxes, but why limit the selection to near nothing? Admittedly there has been some improvement the last few years, but it’s still mediocre to say the least.

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.

Go here if you want to buy beers to take home with you. The selection is pitiful, but you will find at least quite a bit of Nøgne Ø, some Haandbryggeriet, some heavier Norwegian mass-produced beers (typically the bocks), and some Belgian and German beers. The selection tends to vary a little.

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.
