You can get beer almost anywhere in Finland148 viewsBut only between 9am and 9pm. And no grocery can sell you anything with more than 4,7% alcohol in it. To fix that we have Alko. Alko is a state owned monopoly with high prices, made even higher by taxes. If you ever need to buy larger quantities of wine or drinks, it easilly comes cheaper to jump on a boat and go shopping in Estonia. LexaMar 26, 2016

Sauna, Olut Ja Terva226 viewsThe left sign says "Sauna, Karjala (a finnish beer) and tar".
The right sign says "All you need to stay healthy".

There is actually an old saying in Finland, that goes like "Jos ei viina, terva ja sauna auta, niin tauti on kuolemaksi." meaning "If booze, tar and sauna won't heal you, you'll die." As morbid as it sounds, it was actually meant to encourage a patient, and remind them that most diseases will heal on their own.
