    Norway is often described as a "dry" country, because alcohol is highly priced and glass of wine/beer in a restaurant is in the range of 60 kr (£6/$9/€9). Beer can be bought at the supermarkets, however wine and stronger alcoholic beverages have to be purchased in state owned liquor stores (Vinmonopolet). The price of alcohol, however does not stop the locals from having a good time. They are often found drinking and carrying on in local street parties and on their porches.

    You must be at least 18 years old to purchase beer/wine and 20 years old to purchase spirits (alcohol levels of 22% and above) in Norway.

    Technically, you're not allowed to drink in public. This law is very strict, and even encompasses your own balcony, if other people can see you! Luckily, the law is very seldom enforced (I've never heard of anyone being fined in their own balcony, for instance), and Norwegians indeed do drink in parks. There are calls for modifying the antiquated law, and recently, there has been a debate in media: most people seem to agree that drinking in parks is alright as long as people have a good time and remain peaceful. However, if you bother others and get too intoxicated or a policeman happens to be in a bad mood, you may be asked to throw away your alcohol, and in a worst-case scenario, fined. Drinking openly in the street is probably still considered somewhat rude, and it would be more likely to bring the police's attention than a picnic in a park, and is advised against. Having a glass of wine in an establishment that legally serves alcohol at the sidewalk, of course, is not a problem.

    In Norway, all alcohol with a volume percentage of under 4,75% can be sold at regular shops. This means you can get decent beer all over the place. The price varies, but imported beer is usually expensive. Shopping hours for beer are very strict: The sale stops at 8 pm (20.00) every weekday, and at 6 pm (18.00) every day before holidays (incl sundays). This means the beer will have to be PAID before this time. If it's not paid, the person behind the counter will take your beer, and tell you "Sorry pal, too late!". On Sunday, you can't buy beer anywhere except bars/pubs/restaurants.

    For strong beer, wine and hard alcohol, you will have to find a Vinmonopolet branch. The state shop have a marvellous choice of drinks, but at mostly sky-high prices. The general rule is that table wines are more expensive than in nearly any other country. Expect NOK 80-90 for a decent, "cheap" wine. They are open until 5 pm (17.00) Mon-Wed, 6 pm (18.00) Thu-Fri, and 3 pm (15.00) on Sat. Sunday? No way.

    Cheers!!

    Trondheim, Norway.

    *In Stores prices for beer is:

    a bottle: 10 – 25 Norwegian Kroner.

    Depending on if you’re getting Norwegian or imported beer. (Scandinavian is “not” imported, so a bottle of green tuborg is 10 NK.)

    Cans (0,5l), are prized from 15 to 30.

    *Out on town, the prices will varies a lot from place to place. The cheapest (fro a 0,5l) would be around 30 – 35 NK (in bad bars), to 80 – 85 NK (in Oslo’s “finest”..)

    Norway is not the cheapest place for going for a beer, but it’s a nice country to visit.

    1.00 NOK = 0.178722 USD $

    1.00 NOK = 0.124587 EUR €

    1.00 NOK = 0.0897592 GBP £

    I was living and working in Haugesund recently and occasionally went out for a glass of beer (330ml), pints are not widely available, which was about £6-7.

    Best to buy from the supermarkets, about £1.20 per 330ml bottle.

    Expensive, as is everything else there (last time I was in Oslo I bought breakfast for me and a friend in a cafe, not a restaurant, just a greasy spoon and it cost me about £ 25. I think the beer was around £5 - 7)

    Are you asking how much does it cost or what the measurement is in a different conversion?

    Roughly about 15-20 dollars. And as for measurment, it is about .5 liters or 16 oz.
