    I'm a 25 year old American who travels to Stockholm frequently for business. I come about once a month or every other month.

    I was wondering if there was anyone in the Stockholm area willing to trade beer or even just get together to own a pint? I live in Chicago and have extremely good access to most beers and occasionally to rare beers as well.

    Thank you,

    John

    Do you ever go to Malmö perhaps? It's rare I get all the way up to Stockholm.

    Unfortunately no. My business is normally only within the Stockholm area.

    Later this year, I too, will be traveling in Sweden. It has been some time since my last visit; I can clearly remember expensive prices at bars. But I did not purchase very much beer at Systembolaget, other than a few cans of Pripps or other Scandanavian macros. What types of prices can I expect to pay for a 6 pack of craft beer or a bottle of gueuze from Cantillon ?

    There are no such thing as 6 packs at the Systembolaget. There was no Cantillon when I went and no Cantillon in the Systembolaget registry (you can check online as well too). I think Cantillon or 3F is released occasionally.
