Wine and spirits are sold in local supermarkets but only in state-operated stores (Vinmonopol). These stores are located in the cities and larger towns. Beer is available at most grocery stores, except in a few places. Tromsø for example, set a special sale for beer. Restaurants and cafes must have a license to serve alcoholic beverages. The age limit for purchasing beer and wine is 18 years, for liquor, this set at 20 years. See also Interpretation and Customs rules for import.
