Larger selection than a couple of other locations I visited but still didn’t have what I was looking for. However, staff looked up which location did have it, and gave me the address and directions. Bonus points!

Has definitely got point of resemblance with Vinmonopolet in Norway. You go here to find the strongest and often the best of Finnish brews, including the traditional Sahti stuff. Added is a fine mix of Danish, Dutch, American, German, and Belgian beers. This one should be the best in the Alko chain and has always got something special to offer. Central location (visited, 03.02.2011).

Big Alko at the eastern end of Kamppi. Big beer corner, divided by styles. Not easy to find Sahti, but they had 2 different in a cooler, pity I had tasted both of them. Some breweries from the US unknown in Norway was also here, amongst all the classic Belgians, UK, German stuff. No staff seen in beer corner, just me...

Best Alko in Finland. Good location (if you’re not driving). High prices.

Place rating #500! Alko Helsinki Arkadia is probably one of the largest and most central outposts of the state-run booze monopoly. Inside it is clean and almost clinical. Selection seems pretty decent, but this is the only Alko store I visited on my trip, so it is difficult to compare. Good selection Finnish and world-wide microbrews. Seems like there a few one-off brews for the Alko chain. There are a few ice-ciders available, which although expensive are not overly so in comparison to other countries. I headed straight for the fridge to stock up on Sahti’s! Then I pretty much got boosted on them. I suppose this is THE place to go for take-away beer in Helsinki. Alright.

Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. Passable selection of beers, alas the ’tickers’ are too quick here in Finland, and new releases can sell out almost instantly.

Nice selection, decent selection of Finnish micros and surpringsly good selection of American beers too. To different sahtis were present at the time of my visit. Lots of interesting beers in the shelves, but the prices stopped med from going bananas.

Not a bad selection for a visitor seeking a few take-homes, but not a vast quantity of beers.

Well you might find something interesting, but the pricing is frightening - even by Helsinki standards. 42 euros for a bottle of Shepherd Neame Generation Ale anybody?

An inviting Beer Store, at least compared to the Swedish counterparts in terms of Systembolaget. Selection was good with a lot of beers that one can not find at Systembolaget. Prices were quite high, Cantillon Geueze 37,5 cl bottle was 7.06 EUR. Very central location in Helsinki.
