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.
