Systembolaget main facts:
Chain of government controlled monopoly stores to sell alcohol with an ABV higher than 3.5% to take home.
20 years age limit to shop, or even to accompany someone else making a purchase. If ID can not be produced, you might get refused service.
All alcoholic beverages above 3.5% ABV you wish to buy in Sweden and not from a "Systembolaget" store, you will have to buy at a pub or restaurant, for consumption at the place where you purchased it. Minimum age requirement 18 years, the pub itself might opt for another age limit though, making it so you need to be older still.
Alcohol at 3.5% ABV or lower may be for sale to take home at regular stores that have a permit for it, age limit 18 years, ID may be required.
One of the government owned alcohol stores of Göteborg. Usually with a fairly big selection, sometimes also from the "temporary news" part. Located in a shopping mall a bit out of town, on the island Hisingen. Best reached by car, but also by for example trunk bus number 16.

The local Systembolag! Ups, yes as gnoff mentioned easy to access especially if you have to collect big shippments (sometimes some beers from the wee releases). They are getting back on track, getting special releases that they shouldn’t. ;) Friendly staff fixing a bit extra.
