Systembolaget

In Sweden, all alcoholic beverages containing over 3.5% alcohol by volume are sold through the government owned chain called Systembolaget. 

You have to be over 20 to buy alcoholic beverages at Systembolaget. The age limit for ordering alcohol in bars and restaurants is 18. The reason for this monopoly is to control and reduce damage caused by overconsumption and to promote a moderate drinking culture. Systembolaget is in central locations in most Swedish cities.
