The Systembolaget chain of state-run liquor stores is an essential part of life in the country. Any beverage containing more than 3.5% alcohol (i.e. any beer or cider that's not ultra-light, wine, whiskey, vodka-in fact, any kind of hard liquor) must either be purchased from a business with a special liquor license (i.e. a bar, club or restaurant) or from one of these shops (you can order online too, but obviously that takes some time and is more intended as a service for Sweden's far-flung hinterlands). Prices are high (it's a monopoly after all), so shoppers intending to stock up for more than just a single party or evening's relaxation would do well to stock up on the lower priced bulk purchases or see what's on special.
