Our American friends, customers and associates sometimes pull their hair when they hear how things work in Finland. "That's communism!" is a phrase we hear often. Still, we like to think Finland is the only country we have, so instead of succumbing to "Love it or leave it!", we choose to love Finland and improve it.
This time we tried to acquire a licence to sell beer over the internet. The delivery would be via Matkahuolto parcel service to pick-up points, which are run by grocery stores and kiosks with alcohol licences of their own. This would ensure that the package would never be handed over to minors or at a time when selling alcohol is not allowed.
Our system would not be easier or cheaper compared to just buying a beer at the same grocery store where you'd pick up the parcel from us. The idea was to offer a better selection of beer to people who live in scarcely populated areas of Finland; quite often it doesn't make sense for a small local shop for local people to stock a wide range of craft beers. And we Finns sure love beer.
It's worth noting that our proposed model is not illegal and our constitution says only illegal actions can be prohibited. We left the application in 2016 and it was turned down in 2017 by our Regional State Administrative Agency. As early as in 2019 the Supreme Administrative Court of Finland rejected our appeal with a 2-3 minority supporting our position.
This round was our loss, but the battle against arbitrary government interference isn't lost. In the meantime we are visiting the United States to get some freedom air in our lungs and climb the proverbial mountain on our mission for Total World Domination!
P.S. Finnish residents can order alcohol over the internet from other EU-countries and we could sell alcohol to other EU-countries. Let that sink in for a moment.

Sleeping bag size selection guideThe woes of fitting a sleeping bag online We're often asked about sleeping bag sizing. Especially large persons struggle to find a big enough sleeping bag, but an oversized bag means unnecessary weight and reduced warmth for a slender person.
