So where do you eastern MA folks shop? I guess the usual suspect is BML. What else? Going to be around Bedford for 10 days from the 17th and on.

There's a New Hampshire state liquor store just a ways up I-95 in Hampton that I stop at when driving to Maine. Reasonable prices - http://www.liquorandwineoutlets.com/.

Is that the one that's like a Rest Area--I mean, not even a full offramp off the freeway? Very amusing to my Left Coast eyes.

If it's Bedford Mass, not Bedford NH, Vintages in West Concord would be a good bet -- relatively small but very well selected. In Acton, Acton Wine and Spirits.
Lots of other suggestions if you want someplace closer to Boston.

Yes - There's one in each direction.

Thanks. I actually visited the NH State Liquor store seven years ago. Good prices indeed.

If you're in Bedford MA, stop by Ferns Country Store in Carlisle. Richard Eccleston, who used to run a store called The Burgundy Cellar in Shirley MA, is the wine and beer manager at Ferns these days. He's assembled an interesting selection there.

The New Hampshire State Liquor Store off of exit 6 in Nashua NH is one of the state's "Wine Specialty Shops" and has quite an impressive variety. No slouch on single-malt Scotches, either.

Alright, guess I have enough to keep me amused (and now probably not enough time to buy new shirts). :)
