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.
Visited twice beginning of September, 2013.
Only Systembolaget in town in Ludvika that I am aware of.
Decent selection of beer, though biggest focus seems to be on the pale lagers. No problem finding plenty of drinkable beers I like.
Also like all Systembolaget stores have wine, spirits, cider etc as well.
Differently placed beers than most others of these stores I’m used to, spaced out a lot.
Easy parking available on the street outside, don’t know of the public transportation in town well enough to mention that. Centrally located though, walkable from the train station/city center etc.
As with all "Systembolaget" stores age limit is 20 years and you are required to show ID if they ask.
