I've found a number of small shops that suprise me when I really look around, but these have consistantly good portfolios.   I worked at Marty's Allston part time for seven years before they moved.  I tried my best to keep it fresh (in code) and order new beers that were diverse and local.

Ma,
Marty's Newton
Marty's Big Buys Allston
Downtown Wine & Spirits Somerville
Julio's Westboro
Charles Street Liquors Boston

For Mount Washington Valley I have this to report:

For best price and pretty good rotating stock: Discount Bev II in Conway on Rt 16 across from “Almost There Restaurant”- This has been my go-to as despite being a gas station the employees actually know beer, take requests, and are engaged with the distributors to continue growing there selection. Lots of craft beer in cans there, so a great stop before hitting the river.

Good selection but a bit pricey: Community Market in Madison... I head there sometimes if nothing new has popped up at Discount Bev II in awhile...

Absolute hands down best selection in the area: somewhat new, “The Good Beer Store”, just over the Fryeburg line. Hundreads of beers, and they print out Beer Advocate ratings/descriptions for many of them. http://www.thegoodbeerstore.com/

Discount Bev, next to Paris Farmers Union and Shaw’s, good selection. Bring cash (no debit/credit cards)

Those are the only ones I ever hit anymore, though the one in Glen is OK.

Clem at the Vista Store on the corner of Hurricane and Rt 16 has an incredible selection of craft brews and wines as well. Definitely worth a walk through. This has been my go-to stop when I am not filling up at the moat.  ;)

When i am looking for quality "deals" are of little concern.

You get what you pay for in most cases. Beer and wine are two things that although you do not need to overspend on too get something fairly good being cheap really limits you from enjoying some really great stuff.

Eat Macaroni and cheese instead of a porter house and drink better beer..

I don't even drink anymore i just miss great beer and wine!!!

I hear that... but my beer budget is been adjusted so I gotta shop around from time to time... Discount 2 has a “discontinued” shelf.... 1/10 visits they might have something good on it for the cheap :)
