For a city liquor store, Bauer is a hard place to beat. It's located on pricey Newbury Street (between Massachusetts Avenue and Hereford). It's an underground location which makes it easy to miss. It's location requires it to be somewhat expensive, but it is also convenient for the Back Bay residents.

For a small store, they back a lot of interesting and unusual brews (and wines/spirits). One of the great features they have is mailing list for new and unusual arrivals. This gives one a great chance to catch the latest (rare) offerings. I also like that they have many unusual imports--it would be very easy for them to focus only on domestic craft beer.

I would not describe this as a "go to" place, but if you are in the area, it's worth checking out.

This place is conveniently located in the Back Bay and is worth a trip from further out. There's a lot of Belgian and European beers and a pretty great selection of American beers. What's on the shelf may underwhelm you at first. The first time I went I left without buying anything and I didn't speak to anyone. When I came back I spoke with their beer guy, who was really helpful, and found a lot of the things I was looking for. If you ask him about a beer he'll either bring you a bottle, discuss it, or tell you where to find it. A great place.
