I usually don’t rate liquor stores but I’m duly impressed by the Rúsan store at Hoyvik, north west of downtown Torshavn. Not only did it offer a dozen different beers from each of the Faraoese breweries, Okkara and Föroya Bjór, but I also spotted a good selection of excellent Belgian beers, including lambics and the world famous Westvleteren 12 (which cost just a little above 100 DKR!).

Nice cosy store with a good selection of Faroese beers as well as a reat diverse, rotating international selection. Staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and they always give qualified recommendations. Service is spot on and the prices are really reasonable.

Better to buy beers here and drink them at your hotel, they offer these 6 packs of 6 different beers from okkara and from foroyar. And other foreign beers, selection for the rest was ok i guess.

3 or 4 beers from Faroe Islands I hadnt found in bars, so dont expect to find many local beers here. I was more happy with the European selection, Evil Twin, Mikkeller, To Øl, Amager, 2 from Westvleteren (8,10) amogst other, also some US beers from Prairie. Recommended stop in Torshavn, a nice 15 min walk from the city center.

They have a decent selection of beers produced on the Faroe Islands but I kind of expected more since this is a monopoly. The rest of the selection were rather sad. The big macros, a couple of belgians plus a couple of beers from fullers and mikkeller was about it. And annoyingly most of the local beers are sold i sixpacks or bigger.

In contrast to mainland Denmark, the Faroes follows the rest-of-Scandinavia model of state-run liquor stores, known as Rusan or the Monopol. These are the only places on islands to buy beer to take home. This being the most central, it has the potential to draw down from the full list of 75-80 beers, including most if not all of the local brews from Okkara and Föroya, plus imports that now run to Rochefort and Chimay plus a few unusual Brits. It is nudging forward slowly but still has no Danish craft beers, amazingly.

A great variety of Faroe beers, but they have the idea that you have to buy a case of beers, and not single bottles. As long as they are Faroe beers, imported you can buy one at at time.

Well, this is the Faroes, so don’t expect much of a selection. The most annoying thing is that most Faroese beers are sold only in sixpacks. A few foreign beers are sold in singles. Hell, people go to the Faroes to enjoy the beautiful scenery - it is not a beery destination! Still, Rúsan has just enough drinkable beers to keep you from dying of thirst.

In the Faroe Islands the only place to get beer stronger than low alc. beers (plus wine and liquor) in off-tade is at the goverment owned stores, just like in Norway, Finland, Sweden and Iceland. Nice store with a good selection of beers from the Faroes, quite some macro and a few micro beers from Denmark, some Icelandic and a selection of the typical international beers like Guinness, Tiger, Murphys, Leffe, Heineken etc.
