After visiting Redstone Liquors once, I feel that it will become my regular spot while visiting Boston (I live in New York, but do visit Boston occasionally). It's easy to get to if you're driving.

The space is fairly small, and it's a full-service liquor store so to speak (full selection of wine and spirits). However, I found beer selection absolutely top level. Local breweries (which is a big deal for me) are very well represented. There are good options regardless what criteria you use - style, packaging (12 oz. and 22 oz. bottles, cans), origin. As I mentioned local is big for me, so I picked up mostly New England brews, but also selected some tried brands for our group (on the way to ski in Vermont).

The space is a little cramped, but it didn't bother me as I spent good 30-45 minutes browsing and choosing. Prices seemed fair and they do give a discount for anything over 6 loose bottles.

As I entered the guy behind the counter gave me a quick tour of the layout and also recommended a few brews. I also chatted with him while paying for my selection and got an impression of an honest and knowledgeable salesperson. That's definitely a plus.

I refer to Redstone as the best liquor store in the state and I don't dub that title lightly. The beer selection is incredible without leaving out the regular mass produced stuff. Prices are good. The new store is unbelievable. They always seem to get the special release stuff. It's just an extremely well curated store with a great social media presence.

You walk in to some of the most knowledgeable staff ever. A huge selection, with good prices to start and then they let you know if you purchase 6 single bottles big or little you get 10% off or 12 you get 15%. Staff is friendly, helpful, and very enthusiastic about beer. One of if not the best beer store I have been in. Nothing bad to say.
