sadly, I moved away a year before I was old enough to drink so I would like to know if anyone else knows a good place as well, so I can visit it on trips back east.

I'm not going to be much help, either, since you're probably asking for bars.
In terms of liquor stores, I was at the downtown hotels for a conference
last fall, and there was a liquor and wine store nearby that had
outrageous prices, but a good selection. There's also a different store
that again had a good selection, but much better prices: it was closer
to Berkley School of Music, so they got student business and had to
keep prices reasonable. That one was on Newberry (Newbury?) Street.

Sorry, with good location i mean Pubs, Bars, etc... To have a great night out, to get Elijah Craig, Woodford Reserve, or other good Bourbons. In that pubs i went i just got Jim Beam or Jack Daniels.

I'm no expert by any means, but I was in Boston a couple of years ago and found the bars around the Boston University campus to be convivial. I don't recall if they had a great bourbon selection, but in a pinch you can always drink Irish. At least that's what I do.

Boston is an irish town and there is big money in playing up that fact, that i can tell you for sure. If you wanna drink irish, (beer or whiskey) there are a miliion good places to go, my old favorite is about 1/2 north of boston offa 495. . . .the Old Court, in Lowell, though you can find many similar to it, just way more $$$$ in Town.

I'm not sure about a good spot in Boston, but when I travel I also like to find a bar with a good selection. I've found that the better restaurants will usually have decent bars. The prices can be all over the map though.

Many times, there will be a number of very nice restaurants closely situated downtown, so I stop by to check out their selection. If it's great I stay. If it's good I have a drink and then move on. If its pathetic, I move on without a drink. Good luck.
