The "local" liquor store in Hornstull. Systembolaget is the state run liquor store in Sweden. All alcohol over 3.5% must be sold from theses stores. As crazy as it seems, it's actually not that big of a deal. They have a lot of locations around the city.

The beer aisle. All beer is sold individually- no 6, 12, 18, 24... you get the idea. It's also warm. You cannot buy cold beer anywhere in the country of Sweden(outside a bar obliviously).
